Backstage with Ron Onesti: A piece of ‘The Godfather Of Soul’ lives on
It was the summer of 2002, and we were rockin’ at Hawthorne Race Course in Cicero. We produced a concert series there every summer for years with some of the biggest names in country, rock and R&B. Of the 30-plus shows we did, one stands out as a career moment for me. It was with “the hardest working man in show business” – James Brown.
