Anything you wish you had been able to see in person?

My list:

- The famous "Feynman Lectures on Physics" that Nobel Prize winning physicist Richard Feynman presented at Cal-Tech from 1961 to 1963. I spent a small fortune on obtaining the newly remastered audio recording of the lectures, but I so wish I could of seen the man in person.

- And despite finding the practice abhorrent, I must admit on a level of pure artistic curiosity, wishing to have heard a live performance from a Castrati. Recording exist of Alessandro Moreschi's 1904 performance of Ava Maria, but they are in poor shape, and Moreschi was already far past his prime at the time they were recording. While the practice of the Castrati was reprehensible, from what was written the voices of those singers was unimaginably beautiful, obtaining the strength of a male but the range of a female (for instance in the film Farinelli II Castrato the singing voices of legendary Castrati Carlo Broschi Farinelli was created by digitally mixing the singing voices of a soprano, Ewa Małas-Godlewska and a countertenor, Derek Lee Ragin) and I must admit it would be a treat to hear one of them, say Farinelli or Giovanni Velluti.

- The "Miracle on Ice," the US Olympic Hockey teams victory over Russia, Lake Placid, February 22, 1980.

Not quite what you're looking for, but have you watched on line the lectures he gave in New Zealand? I don't remember where I found the link, but it shouldn't be too hard to find. Fun stuff. I never thought a guy could get sarcastic while answering questions from the audience about physics, but there you go.

I wish I could have been present at Lincoln's 2nd inaugural, gone for a night of drinking with James Joyce, and, let's face it, seeing the Big Bang in action would have been cool.

Seriously though, what do I wish I could've seen? I'll go for the big ones -- the Earth from the moon, the moment before the creation of the universe.

I would also have liked to have seen the city of Rome at the peak of the Roman Empire.

The Beatles at the Cavern Club in 1958.

Any Django Rheinhardt performance in Europe.

The Congressional proceedings against the Plumbers and later Nixon in 1974.

Any time my favorite artist, Ed Kienholz, was working in his studio (take a look here)

Any time during the Civil War, just to see if the stories about Abe Lincoln are true.

Why do people want to see a Beatles concert at the height of their popularity? From what my parents and their friends have told me you couldn't hear a damn thing over the screaming.

I would like to have been sitting in the Skydome when Joe Carter won the 1993 World Series for the Toronto Blue Jays with his 9th inning walkoff homer.

Also, being at Maple Leaf Gardens (I can't believe they named it after me *sniff* [Smile] ) the night Bill Barillko won the cup in overtime for the Leafs.

Not at the Rainbow, but I did see them 'live' twice. No great shakes. I'm pretty sure they mimed Bohemian Rhapsody. The piano kept going even after Freddie got up to make his trademark mic pose, and the vocals harmonies were too good to be true.
I say this because the other numbers were 'live', complete with many, many glitches...

Bohemian Rhapsody wasn't completely mimed per se; the first and third sections were played live, with a tape for the second section coming in after Freddie got up from the piano, and when the opera bit came in the usual practice was to get off stage and change outfits. They also usually had a fifth member (in their later years, Spike Edney) who would do additional stuff like that - extra guitars during Hammer To Fall, piano when Freddie wanted to prance rather than play, etc.

1. The Monterey Pops Festival live, especially Janis Joplin's performance. I've watched it on TV a number of times, but it's not the same thing. Janis was awesome.

2. Any one of the Jack the Ripper murders, so I could see who the real killer was.

3. My mom's final moments. The hospital where she was is over an hour away, and I decided to leave in time to put my son to bed. My husband could have done that. My sister called while I was driving home to say that she had passed away. As soon as I found out, I was wishing I were still there with her.

The time I saw them, there was no theatrical costume changes, just four credible musicians miming.

As for the Queen concerts- that was no secret they did all that...somebody mentioned that elsewhere on snopes. Didn't seem to hurt their popularity at concerts or anywhere else. What drew people was their ability to work the crowd. More than I can say for oh...Milli Vanilli who was TOTALLY miming EVERYWHERE.

Give me Queen any day. I'd like to have seen them in concert anywhere.

During the Civil War- just to see what the times were like.

Any lecture by Helen Keller.

To see Thomas H. Gallaudet in action. Hm would be interesting to see what his reaction would be if he were alive today at how the students/faculty at Gallaudet are acting right now...

For me, one such "coulda" moment was in college, we were going to see this band in bar in Tulsa that people said would be going places. I decided it was not worth it, and so the whole trip didn't happen.

The band was U2. In a bar. In Tulsa.

Nitpick. Man U won 2-1

But I think there would have been a queue of Irish, Welsh and Scots in front of you to see Norway defeat the English. Here's some of the commentary which is now folklore "a hell of a beating"

Yes, it's legendary over here too of course. We could use some more commentators like Lillelien to weigh up for the garbage that passes for commentary nowadays.

Well I know it says "seen". But I would think that if you went to a concert you'd also want to be able to hear them, too. Unless this fantasy means you could go see them in concert in their prime and magically shut up the screaming fans, too. [Smile] *sigh* I ruin all the fun.

I'm not sure there was such a thing as a "safe distance" that was within visual range of Krakatoa.

What about Thera/Santorini? That would be cool to see to settle the question once and for all about how violent it actually was.

How about the last eruption of the volcano under Yellowstone? Sounds like that one was a doozy, too. And maybe the next one -- as long as it's using a time machine, and not by watching the evening news!

Ireland before "The Troubles."

Brian Boitano winning gold in 1988.

In concert:
Perry Como, Enrico Caruso, Mario Lanza, Bob Seger in his prime, and Jan Pierce

Also one more Fogelberg concert, because it would mean the cancer didn't get him.

Failing all of that, I might one day get to see Andrea Bocelli or Josh Groban in concert.

Edited because this thing posted before I was finished. Don't know what I did wrong. [Eek!]
