Oh, RK as in Robby Krieger, had to double-take that for half a sec! :)
I'll have to think for a while before answering for myself.
And calvin2hikers.... Please see more shows. Maybe you don't need to see a ton of alumni, but at least find a way to see Ike or NMB. Please. Or at least throw in a caveat that severely blames Andre for not travelling away from the East Coast in a long time! :)

You know I wanted to come to Chicago to see (name of band censored) a couple of times. I never was able to afford it. But I guess I'll try, if you want me to.

Hey KU. Does DZ count as alumni? Diva & Moon have been on studio recordings. DZ maybe only live.

If so - Dweezil Zappa (17)


Whoa! I forgot a BIG one.


Jean-Luc Ponty The Gift Of Time tour 1987. Return To Forever 2011.

I've never seen Ruth Underwood play, but I met her once at The Baked Potato - Joe Travers and Friends show w Plook. JT dedicated 20 Small Cigars to her(She was at both Yogurt shows also).

I thought about that and decided not to count Dweezil as he wasn't a band member but a guest. So same with Moon, etc. You can count them if you want though. You reminded me though that I saw JLP with RTF too.
