Be honest now: what rock fan hasn't fantasized about one day seeing Alice Cooper and the Who's Roger Daltrey on stage together, belting out the Rolling Stones' "Start Me Up" with backing by Pete Townshend's brother, Ringo Starr's son, and the bombast of a full symphony orchestra? Well, OK, so maybe that peculiar pairing is no one's idea of rock & roll heaven. But that didn't stop the producers of this 90-minute outdoor concert from assembling a wildly disparate cast, ranging from Daltrey, Cooper, and Procol Harum's Gary Brooker to Darlene Love (best known as the voice of the Crystals' classic "He's a Rebel") and lesser lights like singers Alvin Fields and Nikki Lamborn, to raise money for the Let Music Live charity and to celebrate the music of the Beatles, the Stones, the Who, Led Zeppelin, and others.
