Until all of you take in one of Sioux City Rockestra's shows, or one of the venues here in Sioux Falls (are you listening Orpheum Theatre and Washington Pavilion?) take a chance and bring this wonderful group to town for a show, I'm going to keep writing to let you know what you're missing out on!
It was 34 years ago today (October 3rd, 1978) that Paul McCartney assembled Rockestra -- the largest group of rock legends to record together up to that date. The cream of the rock elite joined Wings to record two tracks for their upcoming Back To The Egg album that day at London's Abbey Road Studios for the instrumental "Rockestra Theme" and "So Glad To See You Here." Rockestra consisted of the Who's Pete Townshend and Kenney Jones, Pink Floyd's David Gilmour, Procol Harum's Gary Brooker, the Faces' Ronnie Lane, the Attractions' Bruce Thomas, and Led Zeppelin's John Paul Jones and John Bonham, among others.
