Last Week’s Rockucation Question:
Even though this rocker identified himself as gay in 1970, he went on to marry three women. Wehn he was young his parents tried to have his homosexual tendencies corected with electric shock therapy three times a week. He once punched David Bowie in the face over a disagreement at dinner. When he broke up with his band, which at one time was managed by Andy Warhol. he worked as a typist for his father’s tax firm before going solo. When he didn’t want to do an interview he would often send a roadie. Ironically, many didn’t notice the difference. Who is he?

This week’s Rockucation question is:
This legendary promoter helped create how we see concerts and shows. He basically made concert promoting a sustainable business. Not only did he just do concerts he took them to the stadiums and above that he was into changing stage designs (Lighting/Theatrics) at the shows always offering something different. You might say he was a pioneer. He was also very instrumental in the San Francisco scene back in the sixties, with his own record label as well as his promotions business. He was a German born and fled Germany during the Halocust and ended up in New York, eventually landing in San Francisco. He is a Korean war hero receiving a Bronze Star Of Valor. He felt his nal originame was difficult for others to pronounce so he took a phone book and picked one from it and used that. He died in a helicopter crash in October 1991. Who is he?
