Happy 78th Birthday to John Simon! John produced 'Music from Big Pink,' 'The Band' and 'The Last Waltz' along with numerous other classic albums. 🎂🎈🎉🍰🎵
"We knew we were making music that didn’t conform to the norm, so when Robbie suggested opening with the slow “Tears Of Rage”, it made sense. When people put the record on their turntable, they’d hear an opening they wouldn’t expect.
This was some new shit." - John Simon

46 years ago today, July 28, 1973 was once hailed as having the largest audience ever for a pop music festival according to the Guinness Book of World Records. An estimated 600,000 people traveled by car, van or hitchhiked to what was then called Watkins Glen Grand Prix Raceway to see The Band, Allman Brothers Band and the Grateful Dead perform.
Even if you weren't one of the 600,000 there you can still hear that set right here.
