In the ensuing twelve years some of the best musicians in the world would grace the stage. Including - The Allman Brothers, Bob Dylan, The Doors, Pink Floyd, The Who, Bob Marley, David Bowie, Foghat, Jethro Tull, The Clash, The Talking Heads, Rush, Dr. John and many many more. We are filming this documentary on the Warehouse in an attempt to capture some of the magic that so many of us missed out on."
