Why Steven Van Zandt Spent Years (And Lots Of Money) Reuniting The Rascals

“If you picture those days [ the '60s], most white artists just stood there and played. Elvis Presley was an exception, Mick Jagger and The Rolling Stones were an exception. But most white artists stood there and performed and that was fine. Most of the black artists, they were real performers, very exciting, and The Rascals performed like a black band. They were the first ‘blue-eyed soul’ band, which was very influential to us.”

“Like If ‘Jersey Boys’ Had The Four Seasons” – Little Steven Explains The Rascals “Once Upon A Dream”

Van Zandt felt that simply reuniting the original members would be great, but he also wanted to tell the band’s tale. He told CBS Local, “People know the music. The Rascals had 18 hits in five years, three #1 singles, so people know ‘Groovin’,’ ‘People Got To Be Free,’ ‘Good Lovin’,’ ‘A Beautiful Morning,’ but do they really know the band? The answer is ‘no.’ I want to do their life story a little bit, and do it in a muti-media way to make it really entertaining.”
