Kirshner’s Rock Concerts Contain Epic Footage [VIDEO]

A man who helped launch the careers of a lot of rockers passed away on Monday, Don Kirshner died of heart failure in Florida at 76.  He employed some of the best songwriters in the music business at New York’s Brill Building, including Carole King, Neil Diamond and Neil Sedaka, and used them to write songs for projects like The Monkees and the animated band The Archies.  Those were a couple of my favorite TV shows growing up.

Did you ever watch “In Concert” on ABC?, Kirshner was the creative consultant which led to his syndicated show, “Don Kirshner’s Rock Concert”. It ran from 1973 through 1981, and featured performances by the Rolling Stones, Peter Frampton, Kiss, Kansas, Rush, the Eagles and the Ramones.  The acts played live on tv and were able to debut some of their new songs like this video of the Steve Miller Band.
