Fact #156855


Short story:

Joe Cocker holds the first day of rehearsals for his Mad Dogs And Englishmen tour at the A + M Soundstage, Los Angeles, California, USA.

Full article:

Denny Cordell (record producer) : There are three drummers, each with their own drumkit. There are three guitar players, horn players – Bobby Keys and Jim Price. We decided we needed three girl singers – at least a dozen show up. There are tambourine players … you name it.

Rita Coolidge (backing vocalist) : I was straight out of college, ended up in LA and had this in my lap to pull together a choir and do Mad Dogs and Englishmen, and the things that happened on that tour I wouldn't have imagined in my wildest dreams.

Joe Cocker : One thing that disappointed me was we didn’t have very much original material. We re-vamped a lot of stuff.
