From Aerosmith to ZZ Top, Richard Cobb saw them all during his twenty-five-year career managing mid-market arenas where they played. He tells stories about eating Fig Newtons with Elvis on his private airplane, about his struggle to get Sly Stone on and off the stage, and about his battles with protesting conservative Christians who hoped to scuttle a scheduled performance by Ozzy Osbourne. We Were Legends in Our Own Minds is a backstage pass to all these musical adventures and more.
