  1. I was there, and have told the story of GFR not just giving TYA a run for the title, but they made LA history. I returned to the Forum four more times to see GFR as the headliner act. However, I can not understand why this author left out the best Forum concert. Chicago Transit Authority, Deep Purple, and a very young Eric Clapton, Jack Bruce, and Ginger Baker, aka Cream.

    • GFR vs TYA – glad to hear you were there also!
      I can only report on those concerts I attended and most were historic due to the times and the fact that they took place at the high point in each band’s career. Of course there were many, many others; such as those you mentioned.
      Cream only did one tour and only played L.A. once and I was there, check this site’s Top Ten Historic Classic Rock Concerts 1968-1972 # 10 and #9 CREAM! the DOORS!
      Thanks!

  2. To be precise…Those “black oil Slick souvenirs” were deposited in the toilets” of The Shell station just down the street from The FW…I remember cus I WAS THERE…
    Humble Pie put on one of THE best R&R shows of all time…Those 4 guys were the first Super Group imo…Thanks for the excellent concert stories.
    I’ll be reading more as time permits..Good job T

  6. I went to a Ten Years After and Grand Funk concert that summer. It must have been at the Forum. Were they elsewhere in LA that summer? I am almost sure that I heard the song “I’d like to Change the World” which they say was not played live after a certain time. I’m sure I heard it.

    • Since it wasn’t their only L.A. appearance, they could have played elsewhere, a TYA or GFR gig list may answer that. Altho the concert you refer to may have been a later Fab Forum concert as ILTCTW was from A Space in Time which was released after CG and Watt, I think – this is just from memory not research. In any case, you saw a kick-ass concert during kick-ass times!

  22. Thanks for sharing! I happened to see this show at the LA Forum, as well as other great shows. Brings back some wonderful memories, what a concert. Gald to have been there that night.
