The greatest concert you have never heard of: The 1969 Toronto Rock & Roll Revival SYNOPSIS Three weeks after Woodstock, a one-day rock concert happened in Toronto. It featured five Godfathers of 1950’s Rock: Chuck Berry, Gene Vincent, Jerry Lee Lewis, Bo Diddley and Little Richard. It also featured: John Lennon’s first solo appearance directly leading to his leaving The Beatles (a week later); the “chicken incident” which thrust Alice Cooper from obscurity to infamy, taking Shock Rock mainstream; a random suggestion that helped introduce lighters to concerts; and it set Alan White on a path to the Rock Hall-of-Fame. https://forgottenfestival.com
