Winterland - an old ice skating rink converted into a music venue in 1966 by rock promoter Bill Graham, became legendary for the shows that happened there.
Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, the Doors, The Who, Rolling Stones, Cream, and Pink Floyd played there. The Band began and ended their career there. The Grateful Dead made Winterland home base, playing the ballroom more than 50 times. Bruce Springsteen's December 15, 1978 show was simulcast on local radio station and Springsteen historians consider that show one of his most legendary. The Sex Pistols played their last show at the venue and so did The Band on Thanksgiving, 1978 with their famous "Last Waltz", joined by a cast of guest performers including Neil Young, Eric Clapton, Bob Dylan, and Joni Mitchell, while Martin Scorsese filmed the show, creating one of the greatest concert films ever made.
Through the back door, all of the greatest rockers of the 60's and 70's made their way to the greatest of stages. The door is priceless, in part because you cannot assign a value to the magic that was created in this historic and legendary concert hall that is now gone forever - the door is all that remains. Each person who walked through this door made an important and significant contribution to the legacy of rock music for ever after. These artists inspired the artists who are today inspiring people around the world.
This door has been allocated to our permanent, and not-for-sale collection. It is proudly displayed in our Vault for the few VIPs who get the opportunity to tour the Vault in person on occasion. On one such tour, the door was recently noted, and a generous offer was even made. Bill Sagan, owner of Wolfgang's Vault, said that the only way he would be willing to part with this treasure is if someone who understood its intrinsic value and significance would be willing to pay $1 million to own it so that we could donate 100% of that million to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, a cause close to Bill Sagan's heart.
