It is amazing the passion there still is until this day for The Fillmore East memories! Concert promoter Bill Graham is no longer with us but we wanted to pay tribute to him on his birthday January 8th. He was born in 1931 and died in a helicopter crash on October 25th 1991. Bill had accomplished a great deal for the music world in just a few short years down in the village of New York City at The Fillmore East! Musicians loved playing there and fans lined up to buy tickets and to see concerts for just $3, $4 and $5 dollars! In this episode we interview researcher/talent agent Ken Franklin about the Fillmore days and revisit previous interviews with performers and staffers from The Fillmore East in "The Best OF The Fillmore East" podcast documentary! We talk about Bill and what he meant to so many as a rock concert promoter. Other special guests: Performers: Henry Gross from Sha Na Na, Corky Laing from Mountain, and Larry Tasse from Hello People. Former Fillmore East staffers: Allan Arkush, Jerry Pompili, Amalie Rothchild and Bruce Shindler! You do not want to miss this BEST of The Fillmore episode!
Check back in next month to find out where you can see and hear more interviews about The Fillmore East in the future!
