    Cowboy Mouth, probably nine or 10 times over the last 20-plus years.
    The last time I went with my wife, it was at a smaller venue and the lead singer walked through the crowd to herd the folks in the back of the room closer to the stage and create some more energy. My wife and I were toward the back, and he walked up to us and talked to us for a second before herding us toward the front. I about had an out of body experience. My wife was looking at her phone and barely aware any of it was happening.

    Was interviewed by a hockey host a couple of months ago. He indicated attendance at 30-plus Motley Crue concerts.

    I was envious.

    Damn I'm jealous. Only three Butch shows for me so far but eager to add to the list. Last one was his annual charity show in Topanga Canyon last year with Jakob Dylan, Matt Nathanson, Andrew McMahon and Paris Jackson, among others. Great day.

    I believe it's a three-way tie: Rush, Neil Young (solo and with Crazy Horse) and Dave Matthews Band, six each. My wife is a big fan of the latter, but I never mind going along.

    In the mid-90s, DMB and Neil Young were on the same tour, along with Gin Blossoms.

    Would love to see that Topanga Canyon show someday.

    It’s amazing the number of top guys he works with.

    I have seen The Who, in various incarnations, four times and Townshend solo - one of the five best shows I have ever seen - once.

    Same, though only six times since July 2013.
