28 October 2013

Rolling Stones fans were dancing in the aisles at the 18th annual Music Masters series’ tribute concert honouring the Rolling Stones on Saturday, October 26 at the State Theatre at PlayhouseSquare in Cleveland.  The week-long series, It’s Only Rock ‘n Roll (But I Like It): The Music of The Rolling Stones, culminated with the all-star tribute concert by top-flight musicians who have all recorded or toured with the Rolling Stones over their fifty year career.

Taylor, Ph.D, dean of the College of Arts and Sciences at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland.  The tribute house band, led by Grammy Award-winning drummer Steve Jordan, opened with ‘Brown Sugar’ and continued an electrifying 20+ set with hits like ‘It’s Only Rock ‘N’ Roll’, ‘Jumpin’ Jack Flash’, ‘(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction’ and ‘Sympathy For The Devil’ as the crowd-roaring finale.

Band members included Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inductee Ian McLagan and Chuck D, Merry Clayton, Sarah Dash, Bernard Fowler, Bobby Keys, Trevor Lawrence, Steve Madaio, Waddy Wachtel, Willie Weeks, Nils Lofgren of the E Street Band, Sugar Blue, Lee Fields, Patterson Hood, Dave Pirner, Earl Slick and Cyril Jordan and Chris Wilson of the Flamin’ Groovies.
