Growing up in San Francisco I loved going to shows put on by the legendary and larger than life concert promoter Bill Graham. I can’t recommend Bill Graham and the Rock & Roll Revolution at the National Museum of American Jewish History highly enough. Here is my full conversation with his two very well spoken sons, Alex and David, who are carrying on his legacy.

The Bill Graham and the Rock & Roll Revolution at the National Museum of American Jewish History (101 South Independence Mall East). Running through January 16, 2017 Bill was one of the most influential concert promoters in history, he launched the careers of countless rock & roll legends in the ’60s at his famed Fillmore Auditorium. He used rock & roll as a powerful force for supporting humanitarian causes and was instrumental in the production of benefit concerts such as Live Aid in 1985 and Human Rights Now! in 1988. As a promoter and manager, he worked with the biggest names in rock, including the Grateful Dead, Jefferson Airplane, Jimi Hendrix, Santana, Led Zeppelin, and the Rolling Stones. The exhibition will explore the momentous cultural transformations of the ’60s, ’70s, and ’80s through the lens of rock & roll through psychedelic art in the form of Fillmore concert posters, rock memorabilia, photographs, and more.
