I saw the band Fear in Portland Oregon in 1979. The best part of the experience was arriving way too early for the show and sitting next to lead singer Lee Ving at the bar before the performance. Meaning me and my buddy Stan actually "had a beer with Fear." I wish I had some miserable experience to report, but Lee was actually a nice guy and seemed to enjoy blabbing to two enthralled Oregon kids.
It was an amazing show. Fear in their prime = AMAZING.
Here's Lee Ving with Dave Groel of Nirvana doing Fear in 2013. He's still AMAZING.
