The Avalon and The Fillmore

Being a big fan of late 60s rock I have always been fascinated by Bill Graham, the promoter at the legendary venues The Avalon and The Fillmore. I read his autobiography, “Bill Graham Presents: My Life Inside Rock and Roll” and loved it. It’s a warm and frank account of his years booking bands like Big Brother and The Holding Company, Country Joe and The Fish, The Doors, The Grateful Dead and Jefferson Airplane. Recently I came across a site selling the original posters used to advertise the gigs. Definitely one to bookmark as I’m always looking for ways to add to my art collection!
