Rock and Roll in the 70's Part 3

More archival photographs from the 70's starting with Rockpile from the Old Waldorf in June of 1978. One of my favorite bands from that era consisting of Nick Lowe on bass, Dave Edmunds and Billy Bremner on twin lead guitar, and Terry Williams on drums. Great band with three excellent songwriters and singers. Next up is the late Tommy Bolin from Winterland. He played with the James Gang for a while before going solo. Died tragically at 25 years old. Third is Hall and Oates from the Paramount Theater in Oakland on October 12th, 1976, still a great place to catch a show. I'd completely forgotten that I'd ever seen them, much less where it was once I found the slides. The internet came to the rescue. Cat Stevens from the Oakland Coliseum on February 10th, 1976 follows. This was a terrific show despite the less-than-perfect acoustics of the basketball arena. Finally, the Bruce Springsteen protege Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes from the Old Waldorf on October of 1979. He's still touring fairly regularly to this day.
