Rock the Kasbah – Bill Murray

I am excited that the new Bill Murray film, Rock the Kasbah, will release to movie theatres on October 23rd. My interest has built since I first saw the trailer. According to Bill Murray he modeled his role on two legendary concert promoters, Ron Delsener and the late Bill Graham.

I met Ron Delsener at the last King Crimson concert, July 1, 1974 at the Schaeffer Music Festival in Central Park. He was very personable with me that day. I still have his business card he gave me as we discussed the possibility of a future interview (never materialized, unfortunately).

I have noticed that the movie hasn’t been getting great reviews but I don’t base my movie choice primarily on what the movie critics report.

Here’s the trailer:
