April 6, 1974. Ontario Motor Speedway in California. 200,000 people. Earth, Wind & Fire. The Eagles. Black Oak Arkansas. Black Sabbath. Deep Purple. And the top of the bill, ELP.
Kind of like Woodstock (except this festival was never intended to be released on film). Or Altamont (minus all the brutality stuff).
Anyways, there's quite a bit of footage on Youtube of this festival, but I've got to share with you this video by my favorite:
About Classic rock girl!
I'm a college student who grew up two decades too late and missed out on some fantastic music. I relive those years through this blog, by talking about anything and everything rock music related from the '60s, '70s, and '80s-- with some of "today's" music thrown in for good measure. Enjoy!
