On March 9, 1980, The Clash headlined the Orpheum Theatre in Boston. Which got me thinking: are they THE band I’d time-travel back to see?


Before long, I’d complied a short list of 10 legendary rock acts that we will never again see perform live. Now I leave it to you to choose your favorite. Even after making my list, I think I’m still sticking with The Clash. I’d vote Ramones, but I got to see their last-ever Boston show, so bucket list item checked off.
