WDR text 1982: Frankie Miller and his band will open at the televised live Rockpalast Open Air Concert at the Loreley. Frankie Miller comes from Glasgow. He was introduced to rhythm and blues at a young age: His mother had a strong liking for Ray Charles and Ella Firzgerald. After he acquired experience as a singer and guitarist in different bands, Frankie Miller moved to London. He quickly made a name for himself with his voice, his songs, and his renditions of rhythm and blues classics.
Miller was a guest singer for many bands, such as for Brinsley Schwarz and Procol Harum, and as a soloist, he released two Lps. One of these was recorded under the musical direction of the legendary Alain Toussaint in Atlanta. Since 1976, Frankie Miller has been putting new bands together, has continued to release outstanding records and has completed successful tours.
Today, he is one of the most respected singers of white rhythm and blues. Many other singers, such as Bob Seger, are influenced by him. Frankie Miller himself shows special qualities, particularly at live concerts. For one, he always has new and different variations to his own compositions; through his singing style, he transforms songs from other composers into his own renditions.
"Frankie Miller opened the concert at 4 p.m. Brigitte's first cut was perfect ,
everyone felt the special atmosphere of this day. At night in the hotel bar Frankie
told us about his friendship with Bob Seeger. In concert, he quoted him with 'Fire
Down Below', which, in turn was derived from Frankie's 'Ain't Got No Money'. Frankie
Miller was our guest at the Loreley for the third time. He was especially happy that
Rory Gallagher was part of the show."

WDR text 1982: Eric Burdon and his band will be coming to Germany from Los Angeles, Burdon's home at this time, just for their appearance at the Rockpalast Open Air Concert at the Loreley. You could fill books trying to tell Eric Burdon's full history and career. He was born in Newcastle, northern England, on May 19th, 1941. Just like Frankie Miller, he also listened to records from Ray Charles, Bo Diddley, and John Lee Hooker as a boy, and wanted to do something similar.
With 'The House of the Rising Sun', and as singer for the Animals in the '60s, Burdon was also one of the young white singers whose voice was immediately recognized. Always in search of new experiences and endeavors, musical and also just to get ahead, Burdon later formed 'The New Animals' and 'War', internationally very successful groups. In the '70s, Burdon had many bands with ever-changing formations and showed reverence to his first influences, (as in many of his lyrics), the blues, with an album recorded together with Jimmy Witherspoon.
Burdon worked for some time in Germany, played with German musicians and had the opportunity to devote himself to his second love, movies. He played in two movies from Christel Buschmann, with the leading role in 'Comeback'. Today, Eric Burdon does concerts and goes on tours when it's fun for him. He says to himself: "Even though I know from experience that being on the road can be excruciating in the long run, I keep coming back to it."
"Eric Burdon, who has done many different things in recent times (for example,
the film 'Comeback'), brought his American band with him, which he had just put
together. He once again proved his uniqueness as a singer and in his renditions of

WDR text 1982: BAP emerged as a group in different phases in recent years. For all of those who still don't know: BAP = father in Kölsch slang (Cologne slang). Wolfgang Niedecken, an art student, now and then played his own songs and German versions from Dylan compositions in Cologne slang as openers at different concerts in Köln. As more and more people asked if it was possible to buy his music on record, Niedecken recorded his first LP with different musicians in 1979.
Today, BAP is a rock band, and Niedecken's lyrics are still in Kölsch, but in the meantime, the whole undertaking has become famous everywhere. The success of a tour through all of Germany showed that BAP doesn't have to have nearly as many explanations as they thought they would need in order to express what they wanted on-stage. Live concerts from BAP are events that not rarely last two and a half hours and only end after many encores. In the meantime, the group's popularity is so great that fans from different cities go to concerts together by bus; banners are just as normal as memorized song lyrics there. For their appearance at the Rockpalast, BAP has prepared some new songs which they'll introduce for the first time to a large audience.
One of the first high points in the history of our Loreley was surely BAP's appearance. Whoever still couldn't believe that this band not only meant something in Köln or around Köln, were finally taught something here. In their triumphant march through a number of regions, Rockpalast at the Loreley proved to be the crowning touch. BAP accepted ovations in the sold-out arena and finally became one of the most popular groups in Germany. From 'Verdammp lang her' to 'Kristallnaach' - the audience was flabbergasted. Even the trees that were filled with fans, danced.
"BAP's concert was one of the best in our Loreley history. The group had two
strong frontmen with Wolfgang Niedecken and Klaus Heuser, the 'Major'. The audience
gave back all the intensity they put intoo the show. Whoever said BAP,meant the
whole band, of course - Schmal and Wolli Boecker, Steve Borg and Alexander Büchel.
Incidentally, the first German band in a Eurovisions airing of Rockpalast."
In the meantime, BAP have played seven times at Rockpalast. Markthalle Hamburg 28.11.1981, Loreley Open Air St. Goarshausen 28.08.1982, at the last rocknight 17.Rockpalast Rocknight the start of the American tour in Koblenz on November 18th, 1996, the gig at Musical Dome Köln November 22 1999 and the concert an der toten Brücke in Euskirchen 15.06.2001 were taped and aired. Together we celebrated the drei mal zehn Jahre Jubiläum in Cologne 14.and 15.January 2006 at Kölnarena.

"In spite of my catastrophic numbers memory, I'm pretty
sure that it was the 28th of August, 1982, that we introduced our album 'Vun drinne
noh drusse', during the course of a Rockpalast-Eurovisions airing at the Loreley
(almost unrehearsed). It was a wonderful summer evening, sold-out, everything was
perfect. I even got to meet Rory Gallagher, one of my biggest heroes, on that
day.....not to mention, the spontaneous session at the end of the event: David
Lindley, Eric Burdon, Rory Gallagher and BAP played Dylan's 'Knocking on Heaven's
Door'. One says, it was finally our multi-regional breakthrough. It's almost
unbelievable that that was almost fourteen years ago. Why on earth didn't we play
there the whole time? It's high time we do because, after the Berliner Waldbühne,
the Loreley is by far the best Open Air location in the country!"

WDR text 1982: David Lindley and his band are also flying in from Los Angeles just for their appearance at the Rockpalast Open Air Festival at the Loreley. It will be David Lindley's only appearance in Europe this year. Lindley is an American and has been on the road under his own name for a little more than a year: Nevertheless, at least for the people on the American west coast that know their music, he has been well- known for a while, particularly because of his long-time work as a guitarist for Jackson Browne. On top of that, he's played with almost everyone: Crosby and Nash, Linda Ronstadt and Ry Cooder are only three names.
David Lindley's career can be divided into four parts: As a fourteen-year old, he began to acquire knowledge of the guitar by copying rock'n'roll singles. In the early '60s, he changed over to acoustic folk music and played in cafes and bars. Around 1965, he formed the cult band 'Kaleidoscope' , with which he wanted to create a "musical synthesis of all music styles". The next step was working together with Jackson Browne, whose records and concerts wouldn't be so well-known without the unique sound of David Lindley's electric steel guitar.
The last station for David Lindley, until now, is his own band, with whom he also appeared to an enthusiastic audience in November, 1981, at the Rockpalast Concert in the Metropol in Berlin. In an almost two-hour long concert, Lindley presents the whole range of his musical abilities: As a guitarist, as a steel-guitarist, as a violinist, with the mandolin guitar and the Hawaiian ukulele, and, of course, as a singer.
The musicians of his band give him optimum support, as singers as well as with their instruments. A cut from this concert, the 'Mercury Blues', caused a great sensation at the 10th Rockpalast Festival: On the one hand, everyone was very impressed with the abilities of this band, and on the other, it was twice as sad that during the second attempt, the high tech messed up the enjoyment of the whole number.
That will surely not happen on August 28th. "David Lindley became a term in all
of Europe with his appearance at the Rockpalast. Later, he was able to play in
sold-out concert halls. A full-blooded musician who was also able to put 17,000 fans
under his spell, with his acoustic pieces."

WDR text 1982: Rory Gallagher will also be at a further premiere of Rockpalast. Five years ago, on July 23rd, 1977, he opened the first Rockpalast Festival in the Grugahalle in Essen. On August 28th, 1982, he will appear at the Rockpalast Open Air Festival at the Loreley. Rory Gallagher is very well-known by all lovers of good rock music in Germany. In many years and in just as many tours, he's been able to summon his own crowd of regulars (including young fans, too), that knew about his beginnings or the name of his earlier group 'Taste', just from hearsay.
Gallagher's strong points are now, just as ever, his live concerts. He immediately brings high spirits in every hall. His trademarks are a very worn-out looking Stratocaster (that's a guitar), an ancient, tiny amplifier, and a straight-out, strongly blues-influenced rock'n'roll. Gallagher varies on-stage. He plays an acoustic piece, he is an outstanding slide-guitarist and also uses an electric mandolin. All in all, he always sees to it that fans and groups at concerts are garanteed to work up a sweat and that they have a great time.
"Rory Gallagher, who closed the concert at the Loreley, was already there in 1977
at the first Rocknacht in Essen. ("The atmosphere was electrical"). This time, he
even postponed an American tour in order to follow-up on the invitation for the
Loreley. He came with his worn-out strat, which had to be newly grounded, in one
night, so that the sound transmission could be done without interference. Rory was
in his element: "I especially like Rockpalast Concerts."
On June 14th, 1995 Rory Gallagher died at the age of 47 from complications of a
livertransplant in a hospital in London.
