Obsession V: Tickets Stubs

I have been obsessive with saving ticket stubs for over thirty years – a time frame that seems to parallel my rock collection. IMAG2620This isn’t to say I’ve saved every one of them, but I still have the stub from my first concert, The Who at Maple Gardens in 1980.  IMAG2608There have been a lot of hockey games…IMAG2610a clear and intense obsession with The Grateful Dead…IMAG2599NCAA basketball…IMAG2625and more recently many shows at BAM, Carnegie Hall and the Met. IMAG2606Some events I remember better than others. Some I completely forget.IMAG2614They’re just pieces of paper, some just printouts, but still it’s good to remember where most of my money has gone.
