"Live at the Fillmore"
... no more. On this date in rock history, Bill Graham declares his intention to close down the East and West Coast versions of his "rock ballroom," the Fillmore. So a couple of iconic rock halls close down. Let's take a look at the last concert at the Fillmore East, presented on 6-27-71, with a lineup that included The Allman Brothers, Albert King, J.Geils Band, Edgar Winter's White Trash, Mountain, the Beach Boys and Country Joe MacDonald. What a lineup that was! Here's the set where the Beach Boys meet the Grateful Dead...try to get your head around that combination! Thanks to http://www.oldiesabout.com/od/oldieshistory/a/april29.htm and http://www.en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fillmore_East for the info, and keep on rockin'!
