Bowie! Bowie! Bowie! Bowie! Plus Another 996 Bowies!

Over the weekend, Rockin’1000 the 1,000+ member ad hoc “biggest rock band on Earth,” played a concert in its hometown, Cesena, Italy.  They’ve just released the first video from the show, and it’s a cover of David Bowie’s “Rebel Rebel.”

Looks like everybody had a helluva good time!

The website contains an application form for anyone interested in joining the band.  It asks applicants to link to a video of a performance, so that “our Music Gurus can understand if you have the minimum requirements be part of Rockin’1000.”  With 1,000+ people playing, they’re probably not too demanding.

Here’s a behind-the-scenes video:


Rockin’1000 gained international attention last year, when this video of its performance of Foo Fighters’ “Learn to Fly” went viral.    Dave Grohl must have been happy with the result:  The Foo Fighters kicked off their subsequent European  in Cesena.
