jb I was watching "One hit wonders"n VH1 and much to my chargrin, I was reminded that Ronnie contributed to Don "miamivice"Johnson's 1986 album which included the dreadful "Hearbeat" single. Ronnie had opned up Woody's on the Beach on South Beach in the early 80's and frequently stayed down here at that time. He must have met Johnson who was very hot at the time, and they apparently worked together on the album!!!LOL

Gazza I was at that show thats featured in todays header....it was for the Princes Trust (ie Prince CHarles' charity) and about 150,000 turned up at Hyde Park for it

Tickets were an unbelievable 8.50 a head (about $13!!).
Alanis Morisette opened, followed by Dylan playing a relatively short one hour set (Woody played on the electric tracks which included a great "Seven days"..Dylan asking Woody the opening lines before he started singing)..then The Who performed "Quadrophenia" in full with special guests including David Gilmour and er..Gary Glitter etc...

the day ended with a great set by Eric Clapton. Not a bad day out by any standards,even if Alanis went on a bit!

Bluzian Yeah, I was there too and I thoroughly enjoyed myself!!
I had front-row, and it was orgazmic!! Sadly though, due
to Alanis' stage ranting and storm-trooping, I was truly
embarrassed to be Canadian because of her. OOooh, makes my
skin crawl, and to think al those little english teeny-boppers
just fucking LOVED Alanis, and then soon as she left, the
majority of the teenagers left. I was appalled, urging them
to stay for Eric Clapton, and they kept saying, Who?? I said
Yeah, The Who too!! (but these kids had no clue as to who
Dylan, The WHO, or clapton was!!) and for English kids, I
thought that that was such a shame. I had a great time at
that concert, even with Billy Connolly introducing Clapton,
and that all-black Gospel choir for "Holy Mother"?? WOW!!!!

One of the best concerts in my life!!! (And yeah, dirt cheap!)

Doesn't that blow your mind?! I remember seeing Neil a few years back at Toronto's C.N.E. Stadium (now gone) when Blues Traveler, Soundgarden and Pearl Jam were the opening acts. I remember when Pearl Jam finished there set, hundreds of teens left. Leaving the general admin field open for the Neil fans quick access to the front of the stage.
I'll bet they're kicking themselves now.

Scot Rocks Was that the show where Gary Glitter smacked Rodger with the mike in the eye and damaged it pretty bad?...Rodger said in an interview that if he had know there what he - glitter - was upto he would have beaten the shit out of him.

Gazza It actually happened the day before at the rehearsal....
they were rehearsing their duet on "The Punk & The Godfather" and as they both swung their mike stands at the same time, Glitter's caught Roger just under his eye and knocked him unconscious. An inch or two higher and it could possibly have killed him.

Daltrey ended up with a horrific black eye but played the show the next day with his eye covered in a "mod"-style patch (ie the red,white and blue circle design) which i guess many people, myself included at the time, thought was part of the wardrobe for the show!!

and yes,Martha,it was recorded. Sky One in the UK and HBO in America (and mayvbe other countries too) broadcasted edited highlights of this concert, although I think we got only three songs by Dylan, about 4-5 from Clapton,pretty much all of Alanis's 35 minute set (even though she was the opening act!) and 4 songs from The Who. As its pointless listening to "Quadrophenia" unless its played in its entirety it was a bit ridiculous (I mean can you imagine showing a performance of MacBeth and showing only about a quarter of the scenes??). I do have a copy of the entire Dylan and Who sets from audience recordings.
08-27-02 11:40 PM
Bluzian Yes, as Gazza mentioned, there is an edited version out there
that MuchMusic aired back in the fall of '96, but, it paired
in comparison to the actual show (as you can well imagine).
I do have that version recorded somewhere, but I would LOVE
to hear the audio of Dylan's set (*hint hint* Gazza?) ;-)

With regards to Neil Young.. yeah, funny, I picked to see
Rod Stewart the next night (August 18th?) instead of Neil.
I was more into Faces at the time, but looking back, after
constantly hearing from my friends who went to see Pearl Jam
how envious I am - mostly because Booker T and the MG's back
up Neil, and did Green Onions!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I met Steve Cropper here in T.O. a few years back when I was
an extra in the Blues Bros 2000 movie, and he gave me a
guitar pick. The Col. is a real swell guy!

Have you ever seen "The Last Waltz"??? :-)
