Rock and Roll Heaven as I see it...
In "Rock and Roll Heaven", you can see The Greatest Rock Concert Of All Time....
Welcome everyone to my ROCK AND ROLL HEAVEN. My name is Rob and I'll be your host for the evening. I'm going to go out on a limb here and tell you that I think we've got what is guaranteed to be the very best Rock and Roll show you've ever seen.
Because "If you believe in forever---Then life is just a one-night stand---If there's a rock and roll heaven---Well you know they got a hell of a band.
So please, Find yourself a nice soft corner of a cloud somewhere and relax. The show will start soon but first I'd like to introduce some of the performers who will share the stage tonight. Some of these Rock icons have been up here jamming together for over 40 years while others have joined the band more recently.
We won't get into WHY they are here but suffice it to say that many of them became members of the band way before their time. Each left behind a legacy that has stood the test of time and all of these performers are what Rock and Roll is all about!
And now, without further ado, let me introduce to you, the acts you've known for all these years.
Ladies and Gentlemen.....Here is ONE HELL OF A BAND !!!
A Big Thank You to Robin and Bonnie

Unfortunely, on June 18, 2011 we had to add the great Clarence Clemons to the Band.
WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Clarence Clemons, the larger-than-life saxophone player for the E Street Band who was one of the key influences in Bruce Springsteen's life and music through four decades, has died. He was 69.
Clemons was hospitalized about a week ago after suffering a stroke at his home in Singer Island, Fla. He died of complications from the stroke, spokeswoman Marilyn Laverty said Saturday.
Known as the Big Man for his imposing 6-foot-5-inch, 270-plus pound frame, Clemons and his ever-present saxophone spent much of his life with The Boss, and his booming saxophone solos became a signature sound for the E Street Band on many key songs, including "Jungleland," a triumphant solo he spent 16 hours perfecting, and "Born To Run."

SO, now that we've introduced this fabulous lineup that we have for you this evening, I'd love for you all to just sit back, relax and listen to the music that this band is playing. All of the great musicians and voices. Songs that bring back memories and songs that you know all the words to. You'll be here quite a while because all of these artists LOVE playing for you and let's face it --- They have nowhere else to be right now.
You know... If you find a quiet spot where you can be alone for a while with your own thoughts, you can almost picture this concert as it's happening. All of your favorite Rock and Rollers playing their own greatest hits and jamming together on some of the classics. Taking turns in the spotlight to strut or strum or maybe slow things down with a ballad.
I go to this concert often because these were a lot of the people that I grew up with and they impacted an entire generation and music genre.
I MISS THEM ALL !!!!!
