We Were Legends in our Own Minds
The Memoir of a Civic Center Manager
In the 1970s when tickets to rock concerts cost $7 – $10, my husband, Richard Cobb, managed an arena that often saw two concerts a week. In his twenty-five year career he worked, and sometimes partied with, groups from Aerosmith to ZZ Top. His stories of their backstage antics, crowd control problems, and his interactions with the top rock legends of our day will make you laugh and may curl your hair.
This is a picture from the ‘Way Back Machine’ of Richard with country legend, Mac Wisemen, who died in 2018. Mac is in the book. Yes, that’s Richard in his urban cowboy look from the early 1980s.
