Next Monday Greil Marcus comes to Portland to speak about rock & roll. All is abuzz here getting ready for the opening of the exhibition Backstage Pass: Rock & Roll Photography (with close to 300 photos!). Greil should be an entertaining speaker to kick it off. He will have some great stories to tell. Being one of the first records editors for Rolling Stone must have been amazing…the people he met…the rise of incredible stars.
Since this show has been going up, many people have come up to me with their rock & roll stories, and I hope to get some of them recorded. How about you…have you had any brushes with rock & roll fame? We’d love to hear your story!
Greil Marcus will be speaking at the Holiday Inn By the Bay on Monday, January 26 at 6 p.m. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. Tickets are available here or by calling 207-775-6148, ext. 3227.
