I'm certainly NOT trying to say my tastes in music are better/more valid than anybody else's, just the imagination of what you could use time travel for
I think it's safe to say you could also watch Little Richard, Bo Diddley, and Muddy Waters concerts on video if you wanted to.

Because people would rather see music that they actually like.

Muddy Waters, yes (& I can't get enough) the others, in those wonderful 50/60's movies, yes (but I would still like to see them live in their formative years to learn how they came up with this) but mostly these are 10 minute snatches of a few of their hits at the time, you don't learn much about them or the creative processes

Mind you, this could apply to any of the artists I like, I don't get to spend much time with them either!

More to the point (and possibly some better examples) Stravinsky's Firebird debut in Paris that caused riots - read about it for years, what would it be like to see it????

Then again, to show how 'hip' I am to the current music world, I would use the time machine to go into the future to see:

Britiany Speers mime to her 100th anniversary comeback from rehab concert

Oh boy, wouldn't that be something?

I think NOT!!!!!

It's kind of funny to hear the person who brought up Little Richard, Bo Diddley, and Muddy Waters make a comment like that.
