Reviews of The Classic Rock All Stars
“THE CLASSIC ROCK ALL STARS delivered a passionate performance full of high energy and hits. The 100,000 people in attendance left smiling and singing his songs.”
John Monroe – (R & R News)
“The D.J. introduced THE CLASSIC ROCK ALL STARS.. I looked at my husband with a quizzical look and he looked back like, “Just hush!” My heart started beating harder.
Mike Pinera of BLUES IMAGE and IRON BUTTERFLY! At the mention of his name I couldn’t help but sing “Ride Captain Ride” and hum IN A GADDA DA VIDA under my breath. Albert Bouchard of BLUE OYSTER CULT, DON’T FEAR THE REAPER, O my gosh! Prescott Niles of THE KNACK, watching them on MTV singing MY SHARONA, he is cute as ever!
We have seen the CLASSIC ROCK ALL STARS three times now. This performance, as every performance, was electrical! When I saw them all together on stage playing hit after hit, I got so excited and forgot I was having back trouble and using a cane! I jumped up and started dancing, my hubby was cracking up at my reactions but I was movin’ and groovin’ to these legendary artist who were playing like no one had seen in a long time. My back pain was gone. Ya gotta love endorphins!”
Kelly J. – Omaha Nebraska
“After the show The band did a meet and greet. I had bought his CD and looking at the line of people behind me, I was going to be happy just to quickly have an autograph. But the guys would have none of this! They took their time and answered our every question. They have the best smiles and are always interested in everything about you.”
Tom C. – New York City
