Gibson Rooftop

Memphis, Tennessee

October 6, 2007 

Who’s a better judge of talent than a musician?  On the roof of the Gibson Guitar factory on October 6, Memphis saw a bill of artists that are vouched for by some of the greatest rock musicians of all time. 

 

Rose Hill Drive opened the show, and they spent a good portion of 2006 and 2007 opening shows for the Who.  There aren’t many acts out there today that rock harder than the kids from Boulder, and they strapped on their Gibson guitars (appropriate for the venue) and gave it all they had in Memphis.

Robert Randolph and the Family Band, who toured with Eric Clapton, followed and played an energetic show that was filled with familiar tunes like "Going in the Right Direction," "the March," and "Shake Your Hips."  However, the suprise of the night may have been a cover of 90’s rap act Bel Biv Devoe’s "Poison."

Here are a few photo galleries of the proceedings:
