RONNIE LANE APPEAL FOR A.R.M.S. CONCERT,
SAN FRANCISCO COW PALACE, DECEMBER 1983

These are photographs from the RONNIE LANE APPEAL FOR A.R.M.S. CONCERT which was a very short tour session comprised of the early masters of Rock and Roll. It was formed as a fund raiser for Ronnie Lane's A.R.M.S drive, Action into Research for Multiple Sclerosis. They played a total of ten concerts, the first one at the Royal Albert Hall in London, England, which was attended by Prince Charles and Lady Diana. They then played nine concerts in the United States, two in Dallas Texas, three in San Francisco, two in Los Angeles and two in New York.

The line-up for the US shows was Jeff Beck, Eric Clapton, Joe Cocker, Ray Cooper, Jan Hammer, James Hooker, Kenny Jones, Ronnie Lane, Andy Fairweather Low, Jimmy Page, Simon Phillips, Paul Rogers, Fernando Saunders, Chris Stainton, Ian Stewart, Charlie Watts, and Bill Wyman. The shows were divided into three sets, each set a different band combination of musicians. Jimmy Page and Paul Rogers played together in the last set and everyone played in the encore. They were the only times that Jeff Beck, Eric Clapton, and Jimmy Page played in public together. These series of shows were also the first time Jimmy Page had played in public since a 1997 Led Zeppelin show.

Ronnie Lane was a founder of the Small Faces and then the Faces in the 60's in England. He came stricken with a fast acting form of Multiple Sclerosis in the late 70's and held the concerts to raise money to help the costs of MS clinics in England and then the United States. He lived in Trinidad, Colorado, in 1997 when he succumbed to pneumonia in the final stages of MS at the age of 51.
