The Rascals: Once Upon A Dream - Orpheum Theatre - 10/14/2013

For 40 years--a pop music eternity--the four original Rascals, among the only '60s bands still with all its original members, have been at war with each other in various combinations. For too long The New Rascals (with Dino Danielli and Gene Cornish) and Felix Cavaliere's Rascals have toured in competing units, interacting with each other only through lawyers and lawsuits.

When I interviewed Felix Cavaliere for New Times in 1994, he said something that would break any longtime Rascals fan's heart: "No, we do not get along... We go around talking about peace, love, and harmony, and getting along, and we don't even do it amongst ourselves. We failed as human beings."
