Backstage Past
Barry Fey’s Backstage Past is the story of Denver’s premier concert promoter and owner of Feyline Productions. This semi-autobiographical work contains lots of anecdotes about some of the world’s biggest rock stars. Yes, there is sex, drugs and rock n roll! I was awash with envy when I read about ticket prices in the 60’s and 70’s for acts like Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, the Rolling Stones and The Who for under $10! This was before corporate greed took over the rock concert business. Fey’s concern at each concert was for the audiences to have a great, safe time.
