The Test Open Air Festival Loreley 29.8.1981
This page in german !
Actual Loreley Open Air No.1 but it wasn't broadcast live. It was supposed to be a test, in order to see if such concerts were able to be organized.
10 Years of Rockpalast to this Concert:
This London band's name was derived from one of Sonny Boy Williamson's song-titles. In 1977 they started out as "Stan's Blues Band", and the name said all. Rhythm & Blues, Boogie and Rock'n'Roll. In 1979 the band was renamed. They turned out to be a superb live band, which was proven quite well by their 1980 LP 'Live at the Marquee". They toured as openers for The Kinks and The Who. Their activities in the Studio were never so impressive. In 1983 the band dissolved and the new Formations of the former band members and the trials in New Wave were not quite successful and that's how it came to a reformation of Nine Belo Zero. They never reached high sales, but up until today they're still a successful live band. In 1996 they once again played at the Rockpalast Open Air with the "Band of Friends" for a tribute to Rory Gallagher.

This band got its name from a car that Donnie Van Zant received as a gift for his 16th birthday, a 1938 Buick Special. (or was it a gun with .38 ?) Donnie was the younger brother of Lynyrd Skynyrd's singer Ronnie Van Zant, who passed away in an airplane crash. Encouraged by Lynyrd Skynyrd's success, the band formed in 1975. 38 Special were constantly on tour with their heavy Southern-Rock-Sound . Wild guitarslaughters belonged to their show. In 1979 they entered the charts for the first time with their LP 'Rockin' Into The Night'. They received platinum for their Album 'Wild Southern Boys' and the Single 'Hold On Loosely ' ended up being a hit. Unfortunately the band wasn't able to keep up their high standards and their sound slowly transformed into mainstream Hardrock. But 38 Special was always a very good live band.

The Outlaws formed in 1965 in Tampa, Florida, but they are really known since mid of
the seventies. They considered themselves an American Rock Band with Country and
Folk influences, but generally counted to the Southern Rock Bands. In 1975 they went
on their first big-scale U.S. Tour as openers for Lynyrd Skynyrd. lt was Ronnie Van
Zant of Lynyrd Skynyrd who recommended the Outlaws and that's how they were able to
sign their first record deal with Arista in 1975. Their first album sold over half a
million copies. In 1977 the first changes in the band's constellation took place and
their sound started to be a bit heavier. In the following year they brought out
their Live LP 'Bring 'em Back Alive', that was able to demonstrate the band's live
qualities quite impressively. After 1980 the band's situation calmed down somewhat
as they slowly drifted into the mainstream scene. They tried their luck in the
Hardrock sector with their LP 'Los Hombres Malo' but the former quality of the
compositions and the typical Outlaw's Sound were not as easily heard as before.
After a 4-year break they returned to the scene in 1986 with a new

This band too, has it's name from a manipulated cars name. Thin Lizzy could not be imagined without the name 'Phil Lynott'. Lynott was born on 20th August 1949 in Dublin as the son of Brazilian and Irish parents. He was the singer, bassist and composer as well as the center of attention of the band. He was a Rock'n'Roll entertainer, who knew how to work with the audience. The German magazine 'Musik Express' called him an exciting and attractive Rock-Gypsy'.
In 1969 he founded the trio 'Thin Lizzy' along with his school friends Eric Bell and Brian Downey. The direction was clear: Hardrock based on a Rhythm & Blues foundation. In their early years Thin Lizzy played in diverse small clubs. A first record deal in 1972 didn't bring the success they'd hoped for. Success finally set in in 1972 with their cover-version of the Irish-folk song 'Whiskey in a Jar', with which they reached 6 th place in the British and 7 th place in the German charts. Now they were well known in all of Europe, but were not able to keep up the success with the following LP. In 1974 Eric Bell left the band and was replaced by Gary Moore, who left the band shortly afterwards. This started a constant coming and going of the guitarists:
Gary Moore - Andy Gee - John Cann - Brian Robertson - Scott Gorham - Gary Moore - Midge Ure - Snowy White - John Sykes.
The band was able to present itself as an excellent Hardrock formation with the new album 'Nightlife' and the single 'Philomena' on a new label. Their climb to reach the Rock Olymp began. They were now playing as headliners of large festivals. In 1976 they were able to set foot in the American charts with the single 'The Boys Are Back In Town'. Their first international hit-album 'Jailbreak' was released. With his distinguished voice and charisma, Phil was able to celebrate the songs that told stories about romance, bad boys and drugs on the stage. In the years 1976/77 they went on long stretched tour's, that were well kept on their Live LP 'Live and Dangerous'. Thin Lizzy now belonged to the great Hardrock bands of the world. The 1979 LP 'Black Rose' was additionally influenced by Gary Moore, who suddenly and unexpectedly left the band during the tour following the album's release. Until 1981 Snowy White played guitar and also composed some songs. Already in 1982, as Lynott started solo projects the first rumors were going around that the band was going to dissolve. In 1983 Lynott could see no more perspective for Thin Lizzy and finally called it quits. His solo career was not quite successful and there was not much turbulence about him. On the 4 th January 1986 Sex, Drugs, and Rock'n'Roll called for another victim. Phil Lynott died due to heart failure in Salisbury, England.
On the 17 th May 1986 Thin Lizzy reunited to honor Lynott. Bob Geldolf took the part of the singer.
