    Elton John, Dodger Stadium, 1975
    #853 - Terry O'Neill
    “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

    Beatles Composing, Paris, 1964
    #847 - Harry Benson

    “It seemed John and Paul could compose anywhere.They would wander over to the piano, sit down and start playing, taking no notice of what was going on around them. Here in their George V Hotel suite they were composing “I Feel Fine”. George and Ringo wandered over and started to join in. It was fascinating to watch how intense they were while creating a song"

    ~ Harry Benson

    The Who, 1980
    #835 - Harry Benson

    “I was aware that Pete Townshend might be difficult as he had a history of being impossible with the press. On the contrary, I found him to be very cooperative to the point of giving orders to everyone around him that I was to have complete access and could even go on stage during a performance”

    ~ Harry Benson

    “A hero is someone who understands the responsibility that comes with their freedom”

    ~Bob Dylan (b. 1941)
