I waited. He slowly pulled off a page and turned it around to show me. It was blank. "Come on, man. Really? Wow, thank you, Bill. "Thank you." Then he walked away. (p438)

🔔 Oct 25 Fri: Death of Bill Graham

Note: Bill Graham (Wolfgang Grajonca) is killed in a helicopter crash near Vallejo, CA, while returning home after just seeing Huey Lewis And The News at the Concord Pavilion, Concord, CA. He attended the event to discuss promoting a benefit for the victims of the 1991 Oakland firestorm, after a great portion of the Oakland/Berkeley hills burned down. Once he had obtained the commitment from the band to perform, he returned to his helicopter, but was stopped by the bass player from the News, Mario Cippolina, who, in a moment of foresight, pressed him to take his limousine. The helicopter crashed shortly after take-off, just 20 miles from the concert site. Flying in weather reported as low overcast, rain and gusty winds, the aircraft flew directly into a 223-foot high-voltage tower along Highway 37, which runs between Vallejo, CA and Marin County. Also killed in the crash was Graham’s girlfriend at the time, Melissa Gold. Bill Graham was survived by his sisters and two sons: David and Alex Graham. Following his death, his company, Bill Graham Presents, is taken over by a group of employees. Graham's sons are not part of the new management team. The new owners then went on to sell the company to SFX promotions. SFX then sold the company to Clear Channel Entertainment. The BGP staff never embraced the Clear Channel name, and eventually Clear Channel divested it's investment in concert production altogether. Bill Graham Presents, along with other independent promoters previously held under SFX, formed Live Nation, and became the largest concert production/promotion company in the world. The San Francisco Civic Auditorium was renamed for Graham as a tribute.

Quote from Carlos Santana (The Universal Tone 2014): A few weeks after Miles's memorial, I was at home and the phone rang in the morning and Deborah ansewered it. "No! No, no, no!" She started crying right away. "Bill is gone!" I said "Gone where?" Then I got it, and that was it, man. For at least two months I was numb. (p438)
