In the 70's, Bill Graham started doing Day on the Green concerts at the Oakland coliseum, where the A's and Raiders played. The stage was on the bleachers and there were no chairs at all on the field. Infield roped off. Back then, you had to clean seeds out of your weed. Eventually Rolling Stone magazine (remember those?) ran an article called The Greening of Oakland. The groundskeeper for the A's confirmed that there thousands of tiny weed plants all over the outfield and that they seemed to thrive despite regular cutting. Back then, changing the turf wasn't an overnight deal like it is now. Carl Spackler definitely would approve.

So, the As and Raiders played on a cross of Kentucky bluegrass, featherbed bent, and northern California sinsemilla?

First concert was Metallica, Danzig, and Suicidal Tendencies at the only month or so old Polaris Amphitheater. The grass hadn't yet taken and it was mayhem, you didn't even have to work to pull it up and start chucking. The headline for the concert's review the next day in the Columbus Dispatch was "Look out, it's flying sod!"

After being out of the country for a few years I went back for Ozzfest, the 2001 one I believe. People were tossing sod again and I joined in on it, only to get grabbed by the neck by Paul Wight's twin and told I was getting kicked out for throwing sod. Luckily, he believed me as to why I was unaware of the three year old policy of no grass tossing so I was permitted to stay.

I don't think it is nostalgia that my first concert is still my favorite. Sadly, I thought they'd all be that good of a time so I pretty much lost my virginity to Sasha Grey but now I'm stuck nailing a fat wife who is too insecure to leave the lights on and thinks anything other than missionary is kinky.

One of these days I'll pay the Dispatch's small fee to access their digital archives, I always like going back and reading concert reviews years later.

This isn't even the first time a concert at this particular stadium has ruined the outfield.

Straight Outta Wells Branch: Obligatory for any Metallica thread.

This photo/caption has always amused me. It would *actually* be funny if he were shopping at Wal-Mart or Target or something, but he's in Europe, shopping at a high end retailer, getting chauffeured around in a new Mercedes.

It that "doing it right"? What exactly are rock superstars supposed to do, exactly? Have you ever had someone try to buy you a pair of jeans? I mean, I guess he could have an entourage member bring him 100 pairs to try on, but that sounds more obnoxious than just doing it ya damn self.

/there is no way he found "bargains" or "savings" an Armani store in a a major European city
