Rockpalast was a WDR (Cologne) show produced between 1974 & 1986, & revived again in 1995. The show was originally produced by Peter Rüchel & directed by Christan Wagner, & was famous for staging gigs with the leading b&s of the day. The three concerts preceding Epitaph's first Rockpalast appearance were with Todd Rundgren's Utopia, Leo Kottke, & Ry Cooder. Epitaph first hit the Rockpalast stage on February 2nd 1997, & were followed that year by artists like Kate & Anna McGarrigle, Chicago, Harry Chapin, Tom Waits, Tom Petty, Rory Gallagher, Little Feat & Roger McGuinn's Thunderbird...
Although two of the founder members, Cliff Jackson & Jim McGillivray, were Brits, & the lyrics were English, Epitaph was definitely a German b&. As such it was quite amazing that Epitaph made it onto what was in effect Germany's answer to The Old Grey Whistle Test.
Epitaph's second Rockpalast gig was preceded by such b&s as Earth, Wind & Fire, the J. Geils B&, Patti Smith & Johnny Winter. Followed by Southside Johnny & the Asbury Jukes, Nils Lofgren, Mitch Ryder, Roger Chapman & The Short List, Epitaph's second appearance was only surpassed by a much later show, Peter Sommer's legendary 2004 KRAUT-Rockpalast, a three-day celebration of German stars that included Karthago, Guru Guru, Jane, Amon Düül2, Birth Control, & of course Epitaph.
