The list of alumni’s unforgettable campus concerts continues to grow.
EMILE QUEVRIN *59 recalled Louis Armstrong’s concert at McCarter Theatre in 1953. Albert Einstein “regularly attended” concerts at McCarter, he wrote.
“Did you forget the Miracles, the Four Tops, or Sam & Dave? I saw them all in Dillon Gym,” wrote LEONARD LAWSON ’71.
“What about Gordon Lightfoot?” asked HUGH YOUNG *75.
CHARLIE HICKOX ’73 said some of his favorite events were not mentioned by PAW: “John Sebastian of Lovin’ Spoonful fame playing an acoustic set during the student strike of spring 1970, Sir George Solti conducting the Chicago Symphony in the first Jadwin Gym concert, and John McLaughlin (Mahavishnu Orchestra) in the Chapel.”
RICK MOTT ’73, whose favorite concert was the 1973 Mahavishnu Orchestra/ Return to Forever concert in Dillon Gym, said GEORGE KORVAL ’77 deserved credit “for a lot of those early- and mid-1970s concerts. ... Music and WPRB were his life at Princeton. He arranged many of those shows everyone else is writing about.”
