"Early on, Dave Edmunds opened the Festival, and after his appearance announced that
he didn't want to play live concerts again. But two hours laters, he appeared on-
stage again with the Stray Cats, with whom he had produced two albums."
Edmunds, who was born in Cardiff on April 15th, 1944, is accepted as THE English pioneer and legend of rock'n'roll, rockabilly and rhythm and blues. He always knew how to keep this style up-to-date. At the age of 15, he already played with the 'Raiders'. He played as front man first with 'Love Sculpture', and later, with 'Rockpile'. Edmunds is famous for his many talents as a singer, guitarist, songwriter and well-loved producer. After his Rockpalast appearance, he has been working mainly as a producer, and returned in 1990 with his own LP.

U 2 will perform as the second group at the Loreley Rockpalast Festival. The name
of the group is a play on words meaning: You too. The group, through it's name,
shows it's relationship to it's audience on the one hand, and on the other, it's an
expression of the practised religion within U 2. All four members are still in their
early twenties. Asked for their musical idols, they name bands like The Rolling
Stones, The Doors, Jimi Hendrix and The Who. Bono Vox, the singer of U 2, says in
this context: "A song like 'Won't get fooled Again' by the Who tells about not
giving up. That's the attitude of the best bands. We want our audience to think
about what they do. They should realize the pressure they are under, but at the same
time, they should never give up."
at the Loreley. Bono's charisma was enormous. He went into the audience and was
always right in the middle of all the happenings. He carried a white flag: A symbol
of willingness to communicate in a world full of problems, with which U2's lyrics
deal with. No instruments were necessary at the end of his appearance. The audience
had joined itself with the group: "We will sing a New Song".
There's a lot to say about U2 and they have a gung-ho group of regular fans, what you can see nowadays by their gigantic presence in the Internet. It all started in 1976 as a school band in Dublin. Within years, the band developed into one of the best- loved British rock bands and became a World Act that filled giant stadiums everywhere. Many songs landed in the Top Ten. They invested the profits from their commercial successes into the Windham Hill Studios and their own record label, Mother Records.
Their political involvement can be seen in the projects Band Aid, Live Aid, Amnesty International, Artists United Against Apartheid, as well as their foundation Self Aid in Dublin, against unemployment. In 1990, the band split up for a while due to their bass player's alcohol problems and a problem with Bono's vocal cords. The 'Fall of the Iron Curtain' and breakdown of the wall in Germany was also a turning point for U2. The LP 'Achtung Baby' was produced in the Hansastudios in Berlin, and new modern influences were worked in. The tour 'Zoo TV', with a staff of 120, was a multimedia spectacle. The hookup to the MTV Era was accomplished. The next LP brought about another turn in their style and U2 also made some music for movies.
After ending their mammoth tour 'Zoo TV', U2 took a long break. In 1995, under the project name 'Passengers', U2 released an album they did together with Brian Eno. In the same year, Bono visited Sarajevo. In the following year, he just barely escaped death as his plane was mistaken for a drug dealer's and came under fire while on vacation in Jamaica. On March 3rd, 1997, a new U2 album appeared, 'POP'. It combines the classic U2 sound with the modern sound of the London dance scene. U2 is also involved in the Ireland peace process.

New York is the home of this group. For approximately four years, they have been
known as the Stray Cats and they went to the top, against all trends and
expectations. At the end of the '70s, Brian Setzer (then 19), Slim Jim Phantom and
Lee (both 17) decided to found a band to realize their own musical preferences.
Their outward appearances were kiss-me-quicks and tattoos; a little guitar, drums
and contrabass as the instruments.
"Rockabilly for the '80s was announced as the Stray Cats got up on stage.
Kiss-me- quicks and tattoos are the external trademarks, standing drums and
contrabass are the characteristic medium."
The band was formed in 1979 in New York by guitarist and singer, Brian Setzer. Dave Edmunds produced their first LP in London, and they soon landed in the charts there. The mixture of traditional rockabilly and new wave helped them on to popularity. Their second LP just trailed along, but an LP with the best songs from the first two Lps helped to be successful in America also. The next Lp was produced from Dave Edmunds again and it went gold. The Stray Cats split up at the end of 1984, but had a reunion in Los Angeles in 1986. Brian Setzer has been very successful as a solo artist and with the Brian Setzer Orchestra. The Stray Cats met from time to time for a concert.

To tell the full story of Joe Cocker would fill books. He is a person with many
different appearances and many links to rock music. Just one example: The simple man
from Sheffield who suddenly has got a world hit with a single and his phenomenal
voice. Someone's who's gone through the worst experiences with the business side of
this field and who, after 15 years after his first success, finally receives a
Grammy for the best vocal performance.
"Joe Cocker, at this time, is living through a successful phase in a life filled
with highs and lows. His album, 'Sheffield Steel', was very well received. But, he
was literally pushed through the world: Within four days, he had to manage Los
Angeles, the Loreley, Eindhoven in Holland, the Loreley again, and finally, Lund in
Sweden. We had the impression that he had been squeezed like a lemon. Joe's concert
was fantastic. 'Many rivers to Cross', 'Innercity Blues', 'With a little help from
my Friends' - there were many moments where he really got to us. A hint of Woodstock
blew over the Loreley."
Joe Cocker, his life, his troubles, that's how his story could be called. On May 20, 1944, he was born as the son of a worker in the English steel metropolis, Sheffield. At the age of 16, he played the harmonica and sang in his brother's band. Many other bands followed and in 1968, he landed a giant hit for the first time (GB 1, G3, US 49), with his rendition of the Lennon/McCartney title 'With a little help from my Friends'. This title became 'his hymn' with his appearance at the Woodstock Festival in 1969, and this song can never again fail at a concert. On-stage, Cocker paddled his arms like a windmill and his movements seemed spastic. He sang the blues like a black man from the Delta.
The next years could be used as a prime example of how it can be for a rock musician. Cocker was taken advantage of to the limit and made successful tours, but at the end, there were only a few dollars left over for him. The deals were completely out of his hands and alcohol set in. He shuttled back and forth between England and America and toured. In Los Angeles, he collapsed on-stage, drunk. In 1978, there was a three-year time-out for him.
In the Bahamas in 1982, he recorded the album 'Sheffield Steel' and rang out his comeback with the schmaltzy song 'Up where we Belong'. The next album, 'Civilized Man', strengthened his success and he finally became a living legend. Sensible management finally blessed him with a decent income, he got married, and lives in Santa Barbara in California. He was there for the 25th Woodstock Anniversary spectacle and received an Honorary Doctor title in his hometown of Sheffield.

The Steve Miller Band concert will end the Rockpalast-Loreley Festival. Steve
Miller is one of the few rock musicians of the first generation who still makes
interesting music, tries out new things and gives new impulses to rock'n'roll. Steve
Miller was born in 1943. He and his parents were friends of T-Bone Walker; through
this connection, Miller was almost forced to discover rhythm and blues and the
electric guitar. First bands were founded in school. They sounded so good that
Miller decided to become a professional.
"American show biz and Las Vegas at the Loreley. Stever Miller had decided to give
his only concert in Europe in 1983 at the Loreley: "That's got to be a spectacular
event!", was his evaluation. He wanted to turn into a tiger with 'Abracadabra'. Two
tigers with a trainer appeared at the Loreley. The tiger cage found no favor with
the Stagemaster, Thilo Schernau. A newer, safer cage had to be built. It had to be
worked on day and night. In London, a complete stage set had to be designed, just
for this concert. On top of that, a magician came from America. All of this - and
don't forget, a computer - saw to it that some of the team members got very little
sleep during the production week."
Steve Miller was born in Milwaukee on October 5th, 1943, but grew up in Texas. He
began playing early with a guitar and during his high school days, played in bands.
He received a doctorate in the subject, 'Comparing Literature', but decided in favor
of music in 1965. He lived through the music stream in the USA, then onto the blues
in Chicago, then the Flower Power times in San Francisco. In 1972, he was forced to
take a break after an accident. Afterwards, he started with a new concept that
turned him into a megastar. The platinum LP 'Fly like an Eagle', made him famous
with three Top 20 single releases.
