It is one of the more universal questions that offers a glimpse into a person's soul: "What was the greatest concert you ever saw?" A rite of passage, a life-changing experience, a catalyst of musical epiphanies, a concert is an auditory, visual, and social experience unlike any other. In The Show I'll Never Forget, music journalist Sean Manning has collected an amazing array of memorable concert testimonies from a veritable A-list of writers and musicians. Take a trip back to 1955 with the poet and novelist Ishmael Reed to see Miles Davis in Paris; relive New York City's club glory days with Low Life scribe Luc Sante while taking in a Public Image Limited show at the Ritz; raise your lighter high along with novelist and Believer editor Heidi Julavits at a Rush concert; get your industrial groove on with downtown novelist and poet Maggie Estep at a cacophonic Einsturzende Neubauten show; or resurrect The Notorious B.I.G. on his Brooklyn home turf with best-selling emo scribe Andy Greenwald. No matter where your musical taste falls, these essays, all written especially for The Show I'll Never Forget, are sure to connect with anyone who loves live music.Manning, Sean is the author of 'Show I'll Never Forget 50 Writers Relive Their Most Memorable Concert-going Experience', published 2007 under ISBN 9780306815089 and ISBN 0306815087.
