As I posted on Facebook, if I had to rank the order of how much I want to see them, I would go:
Neil Young (been a while)
Rolling Stones (sloppy, crazy fun)
Roger Waters (still has quite the edge on him)
Paul McCartney (good greatest hits show)
The Who (just saw them)
Dylan (my favorite of all of them, but his current set/voice/approach/attitude doesn't translate in big venues like that).
