MC5 NEED TO BE INDUCTED!
These guys really should have their place along side all the other greats in rock history and the 5 were responsible for thousands of bands to begin their own bands including the Stooges. There that is all I'll say on that topic for tonight. Except Iggy earned points from me because all day tv commercials were running for the show Iggy screaming Kick Out the Jams Motherfu**er Yes IGGY the MC5 and Ron are COOL
Favorite moment of the show for me was JIMMY CLIFF.
When Jimmy Cliff was 14 years old, a teenager approached him in a Kingston bar and asked Cliff to listen to his music.
That stranger turned out to be Bob Marley, who went on to become a reggae legend and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1994. Tonight, reggae superstar Cliff joined him in the Rock Hall of Fame in a ceremony to be held in New York City.
Fast Forward to the late 90's (I think) I was invited by my friend Robin and promoter friend Bart Loeb to see Jimmy live at the Majestic Theater in Detroit. Bart produced the show and it was packed.
They had a little white reggae group from Ann Arbor open for Jimmy and though they were great... their set ended and big booming drums along with steel drums started up and Jimmy's voice blasted out on the mic from backstage YOU WANT REGGAE? WE YOU GOT IT NOW.
I made my way to the stage front and stood transfixed for his entire set. So close I could have grabbed his foot and yanked him off the stage. It was oneof my most memorable moments of my life in music.
Tonight he was just as young and clear as if it were 1972. tonight he sang Many Rivers to Cross and the crowd didn't breath while he was singing either.
My next favorite moments were by various artists sings ongs from the Brill Building songwriters and as Carole King also mentioned that other Brill Building nearby
Ronnie Spector sang I Can Hear Music which I loved totally as she is the QUEEN to me she is the 60's to me!
Homorable mentions: Singing the songwriter's famous songs
Eric Burdon We gotta Get Outta theis Place
Peter Wolf of Jay Geils sang Money Honey (Really good)
Chris Isaak another of my hunky favorites sang Don't Be Cruel
Fifi Godson sing River Deep Moutnain High Tina Turner version (never hear of her but she was great!
The musicians sang the show off to Shake Rattle and Roll
