The evening before the legendary Rockpalast Concert, Rory played the whole bunch of Rock'n'Roll standards, from Chuck Berry, Buddy Holly, Elvis, ... . Rudi had asked the bartender of this first class hotel for permission to play some rock music where normally calm piano music was performed. The session lasted the complete night, and so became famous in Rockpalast history. Below are some pictures, Copyright by Manfred Becker, the Rockpalast photographer who gave permission for these pictures.
