First ad I saw for "Rockland College Arena".It's a community college I attended for a year. My high school is right down the street. I knew they used to have concerts in the gym, but they weren't common. Someone told me they saw Linda Ronstadt throw up on stage there. I also recall hearing Billy Joel played there. I'm curious to see if ads pop up announcing those gigs in a future issue of the Voice. Thanks,Deena.

I saw both Ronstadt and Billy Joel there. She didn't puke. She walked off and never came back.
