Browsing: Behind the Curtain

In this month’s Behind the Curtain, Steve Rosen details his encounters with AC/DC members Angus Young and Bon Scott at a jam-packed Day on the Green in 1978… It is July 23, 1978 and promoter Bill Graham is presenting another installment of Day On the Green, the recurring concert series he has held at the Oakland Coliseum since 1973. These are multi-act shows but differ from the concerts he’s staged at places like San Francisco’s Fillmore West and Winterland Arena. In those mid- and late-1960s gatherings, he would mix and match musical styles so you’d hear the MC5 kicking out…

For this month’s Behind the Curtain, Steve Rosen details the trials and tribulations of interviewing one of rock’s most unique personalities… Robert Fripp conjured music with King Crimson that was strange, haunting and disturbing—not unlike the man himself. A Crimson song was unsettling—so was Fripp. A King Crimson album was dark—the stuff nightmares were made of—and Fripp was the boogeyman inside that bad dream. His staccato guitar lines bit at your flesh like some unseen thing as the mournful Mellotrons washed over you in a way that was suffocating. For all the world, it felt like you couldn’t catch your breath…

Nothing could have prepared me that day for meeting Keith Moon. His nickname was Moon the Loon and for good reason — Keith John Moon, born on August 23, 1946, was a certified madman.

There have been so many stories written about him that I figured some of them must have been made up because there was no way he could have been as crazy as all that. I’m still not sure if he was. But he did throw television sets out of hotel room windows and he did…

The lights dim as Ryan Seacrest dramatically draws out the announcement of the 2013 American Idol victor, the entirety of the 7,000 seat Nokia Theatre at LA Live silent and waiting with bated breath.  It’s all come down to this: two girls face off in the first all-female finale in five years. On television, the glitz, glamour, and grandeur fills viewers with inspiration and awe; this once in a lifetime chance to follow a dream that you’ve always had.  But being behind the scenes during the entirety of finale week is humbling, making you realize that it is, after all,…

A rally emcee called Occupy Wall Street “the spark that ignited the wildfire that is taking over the world now.”  The movement launched by 16 activists in Lower Manhattan is rapidly snowballing and threatening to become an avalanche.  As the Occupy movement heats up and America heads into a presidential year, with the nation focused on politics, will 2012 become the winter of our discontent? Occupy L.A.’s Oct. 15 “International Day of Action” was headlined by the drummer of one of rock’s most iconic bands, The Doors, John Densmore. Densmore quoted the headline in that day’s New York Times: “In…
