I would second learning Clojure. Functional programming has taken on an approach to concurrency that common lisp just never had and never will. Clojure is a more modern, usable lisp dialect that deals with concurrency. You will learn all the same lessons that lisp can teach in clojure plus a lot more with modern tools. Its just not worth learning common lisp as the first lisp today.
