The Classic Rock “History Book” reminds us that April 17, 1969 was the day that The Band, known for their songs  ‘Up On Cripple Creek’ and ‘The Weight’, played their first gig as a headline group at the Winterland Festival in San Francisco.  Prior to that historic event, the group played back-ups to legenday Bob Dylan!  Quite a reward, don’t you think?

In Classic Rock “Music Headlines”, some wackos ripped off Tom Petty and his Heartbreakers!  5 guitars snatched at an L.A. recording studio.  If you stole the strings, you’ll make $7,500 in reward money, NO QUESTIONS ASKED!  (Except – do you waive the right to have an attorney present before questioning?)
