Can you imagine how much it would have cost to get [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]George Harrison[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Bob Dylan[/lastfm], and [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Leon Russell[/lastfm] to perform?  Throw in [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Eric Clapton[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Billy Preston[/lastfm], and [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Ringo Starr[/lastfm] and you have quite a show. They all did it for free 40 years ago tonight when George and [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Alan Klein[/lastfm] saw their Concert For Bangla Desh go off with only minor hitches.  Klein was also the last manager of The Beatles after the death of Brian Epstein.  Before his own death in 2004, e talked about what was involved to put the benefit together.
