2011 Rewind: Concert Tickets From An Alternate Universe

The pot smoke was so thick during the joint version of "The Weight" we bought two corn dogs, but it wasn't as bad as the Grateful Dead and Gov't Mule gig at the Woodlands last year. We ate two whole bags of peanuts and couldn't find our car keys, and ended up getting a hotel room next to the pavilion.

Joe Strummer talked to Rocks Off a few weeks before the show and told us his favorite album of the year so far was Hayes Carll's KMAG YOYO. He spoke fondly of playing last year's Summer Fest at Eleanor Tinsley Park on a solo tour.

The grandmother of four puts aside writing children's books and guesting on the occasional Ani DiFranco album to go on tour behind her first disc since 1994's Just Like Monsters. She tells the crowd that though she may be old enough to be Caleb Followill's grandma, she would still jump his bones.

Following his second Rock & Roll Hall of Fame entrance for Taurus Winds, his supergroup with Eric Clapton and Jimmy Page, Hendrix goes on a victory lap around the country with his young backing band, the Rumblers, which includes Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith.
