Willie also opened for GD at Giants Stadium in '78. 

I remember that show.

The Arrowhead stadium show is being released in the new summer '78 box set

Nice write up Whoa- - i never knew much of the background on Ace.  That photo of the ad posted by Paul for  a guitarist is very cool!

I'm a big Pearl Jam fan and, as John Cooper mentioned, Mike McCready was influenced by Ace and is a fan.  This was one of the highlights of a show i saw 8 years ago at MSG.  You can tell that the band has a lot of fun playing this one (Matt Cameron on vocals).

Here is some good audio

"On March 28, 1977, Iggy's tour rolled into Chicago. A local radio station broadcast a run through of the regular live show in the empty Aragon Theater. It sounds like a radio session, but it's basically the live set - Bowie on keyboards and backing vocals, Hunt Sales on drums and backing vocals, Tony Sales on bass, and Ricky Gardiner on guitar. And it's a fabulous set. Despite the slightly sterile atmosphere Iggy pulls out all the stops. One of the best ever versions of Dirt and a killer I Wanna Be Your Dog which in a slightly remixed form (eliminating mainly Bowie's rather overbearing and irritating keyboard sound!) it turns up as the final track on the official TV Eye 1977 Live album." - written by Richard Adams, author of "The Complete Iggy Pop."

Personnel: 
Vocals -- Iggy Pop
Keyboards, Backing Vocals, Painting -- David Bowie
Guitar -- Ricky Gardiner
Bass -- Tony Sales
Drums, Backing Vocals -- Hunt Sales

Excellent excellent job Whoa.  Very interesting background info - i wasnt aware of the Nico/John Cale connection.  It is indeed amazing, as you pointed out, that he is the one who is left out of Bowie, Lou Reed and Iggy.

On the '77 Iggy tour, bowie played keyboards for him, including a stop at the Columbus Agora (too young to attend)

Nice choice for today Whoa.  I remember that concert well.  Lots of good stuff (the Bowie/Mick Ronson stuff was certainly a highlight).  Always liked Queen -- so good in concert (always had a harder edge live). And, of course, Freddie was one of the all-time great singers.
