I was part of the team that operated The Palace from 72-75. Though it is sad that the out of town ownership (NY based group that also owned the Empire State Bldg)elected to raze this historic movie monument it did provide many tremendous sold out rock n roll, funk, and jazz shows under the leadership of James Burt. The stage featured shows by emerging artists of the day like Aerosmith, Joe Walsh Barnstorm, Kiss, Kansas, Wishbone Ash, George Benson, Parliament Funkadelic, Jackson Browne with Phoebe Snow, Soft Machine, Hawkwind, Bachman Turner Overdive, and many, many more. BTW, the carpet on the upper loge level, which I was able to obtain some of, featured the lion logo along with the words Loews and Metro Goldwyn Pictures. It was before the entry of Louis B. Mayer onto the operation.
