Bill Graham – Wolfgang's Vault

By posted in

Wolfgang's Vault

This looks like it's been around for quite some time, but Dan Renner, our computer networking guy, pointed me to Wolfgang's Vault, a website where you can view videos of past concerts, mostly rock.

Now, while the name may not be recognizable to many, I immediately recognized the photo on the home page — Wolfgang is actually Wolfgang Grajonca, who later changed his name to Bill Graham. The same Bill Graham concert promoter extraordinnaire who had so much to do with the San Francisco music scene in the 1960's, and on. Bill Graham, of the Fillmore (East and West), Winterland, etc. Sadly, Mr. Graham passed many years ago, but his legacy lives on.

At any rate, Wolfgang's Vault contains many concert videos — want to see past live concerts of Cream or Jeff Beck or Jimi? You'll find those videos there. Mind you, live concerts are not usually as polished as recorded material, but then you get the added experience of seeing the musicians performing their music in its live, raw state.

Wolfgang's Vault also has a store where you can buy "Extraordinary Rock Memorabilia". And also the Wolfgang's Vault forums where people debate on. Note: if they disagree with me, they're just plain wrong. :)

Kidding, of course.

    Bill Graham put on a concert at the Alameda County Fairground in California, 1965 or 1966, it was called "Pop Festival", I went to it and remembered they handed out postcards. I can't find any information on this website, please advise what website I need to look at.

    Thank you.

    Hi, Robin. We don't have that information here at DesignerJones.com. I'd suggest you visit the Wolfgang's Vault website, or try a search engine such as Google.com. Good luck!

    I believe the evnet she is actually refering to was the Northern California Folk Festival, which actually had many rock acts, including the doors.
