    “I don’t think I’ve ever seen anyone work so hard in my life, be so dedicated to putting on a show that the crowd would remember for the rest of their lives. It’s hard to forget an event like that, whether you were on the stage or off. It was a once-in-a-lifetime thing”

    ~Terry O’Neill
    “John’s Saturday and Sunday appearances were indeed akin to a World Series for rock music fans. Not only is singer-composer-pianist, John, the biggest star in pop music, but his weekend concerts marked the first time a rock act had played Dodger Stadium - the city’s most prestigious and best designed outdoor athletic facility - since the Beatles in 1966. The audience response predictably was tumultuous at times”

    ~ Robert Hilburn, Times Pop Music Critic, Los Angeles Times, Monday October 27, 1975

    “Crowds of skiers were waiting to catch a glimpse of the elegant former First Lady who was on holiday with her children. You could tell it was her from a mile away, even in a ski mask with the signature sunglasses propped on her head. You could still see her eyes - those eyes like no others”

    ~ Harry Benson
