Rage Against The Machine has been the best.

David Lee Roth was by far the worst.
That sounds like me, I'm guessing I'm close to 1000 or so. I've slowed down some, but still sometimes go to two or three shows a week.

My list, heavily 80's influenced (I saved ticket stubs in a scrap book somewhere around here). This is what I remember seeing:

The Who (in 1979, sadly just barely post Keith Moon - ticket price was less than $10)
Rolling Stones 1980 (in the first of many of there farewell tours).
Emerson, Lake, and Palmer
Geneses (Phil Collins version)
Peter Gabriel
Plant & Page (post Zeppelin)
U2 (saw them 3 times, first time in 1979 or 1980 in a gym size venue with a bunch of punkers, last time in a 60,000 seat arena with middle aged fans).
The Kinks
Three Dog Knight
The Police
Sting (when he went solo)
Van Halen (they were the opening band for the above Rolling Stones).
The Animals (as I remember, they also opened for the Stones).
Molly Hatchet (opening band for someone, can't remember, maybe The Kinks, very bad performance).
Elvis Costello (twice)
Neil Young (twice - once solo, another time with Crazy Horse).
Joan Jett and The Blackhearts
Jefferson Starship (I can't remember if Grace Slick was there)
Eric Clapton (some guy I never seen before in the seats over kept on passing a joint to me, got amazingly stoned..."a friend with weed is a friend indeed")
The Clash
Iggy Pop (on the bill with Joan Jett, can't remember who opened for who)
Pink Floyd (outdoor stadium in pouring rain)
Tears for Fears
Grand Funk Railroad
The Association (80's version, at some Disney World music event..Village People were playing to, I think I will leave that one out)
The Moody Blues
Paul Revere and the Raiders (80s version, probably only one original member)
Badfinger (80's version, probably only had a couple original members, damn was this group surprisingly good, stayed until like 3 just belting out obscure blues songs of all things, I still remember them "dinosour band", surprised me)
Smashing Pumpkins (in the 90s obviously)
Stone Temple Pilots (in the 90s, great performance, musta caught Scott Wieland on his smack-free night)
