Half of what I say is meaningless... I feel good in a special way, I'm in love and it's a sunny day BeatlesBible.com earns royalties if you use these links when shopping: Amazon | iTunes

Why do all these bands play at these Fillmore places?

Largely because the promoter of Fillmore East (NYC) and the two Fillmore venues in San Fran was Bill Graham, one of the most influential rock promoters of the '60s and '70s. Graham had a lot of pull in the music industry at that time, and had a lot of influence with the top rock bands of the day, plus the acoustics at the Fillmore were (from what I know) excellent, so that explains why you frequently see "(Fill in the blank) live at Fillmore East/West."

Fillmore was good because you could book the East and West and do a few shows at each.  Bill Graham was really the rock concert producer of the 60s-70s.  He successfully managed more than a couple groups' tours.  Big groups, like the Grateful Dead and Jefferson Airplane.  In Thomas Wolfe's 'The Electric Cool-Aid Acid Test', he chronicles one group of Bill's concerts - the acid tests.  If you don't already know, they were concerts where they just passed around jugs of juice laced with lsd, and sometimes the Dead would play at one end of the Fillmore (West) and the Airplane would play the other end.  When you consider over 90% of the people, including some of the band members, were tripping, it sounds like an...interesting...experience.

I've avoided posting here when I'm listening to the ipod/itunes in alphabetical order lately, because I felt like I was maybe overdoing it a bit, but I think that enough time has passed for one little update.

 

Was:

Crying, Waiting, Hoping (Live At The BBC) - The Beatles

Crying, Waiting, Hoping (Decca audition, January 1, 1962) - The Beatles

The Crystal Ship - The Doors

The Crystal Ship (1985 remaster) - The Doors

The Cuckoo - Rory Gallagher

 

Currently:

Cuddle Up - The Beach Boys

 

Up next:

Cumberland Blues - Grateful Dead

Cumberland Blues (Live) - Grateful Dead

Cupid/Take This Hammer (A Toot And A Snore In '74 bootleg) - John Lennon and Paul McCartney

Cupid's Dead - Extreme

Cursed Diamond - The Black Crowes

Curses, Invocations - The Doors

Custard Pie - Led Zeppelin

 

I'm about 1800 songs in out of a total of 9589.  Getting through one rotation of alphabetical order can and has taken me more than a year before.  If I listened nonstop, it would take me twenty-seven days.

I'm Necko.  I'm like Ringo except I wear necklaces. I'm also ewe2.
