We go to concerts for the music, but the best moments are often unrehearsed. For some bands, a show is just a series of songs -- the moments between, nothing but time to be killed until the music begins again. But we don't go to concerts to kill time-- and, truly, we don't go to hear songs, either, because we can do that much more comfortably and with less money at home, where beer doesn't cost $5 a glass. The reason we go to shows is to connect with a group that first connected with us. Whether they're funny, sentimental, crude or inspiring, some musicians do it better than others. Here are the twenty best quotes from concerts this year.
