That’s just what the Rockin’1000 did, when they hosted the “That’s Live” performance at Orogel Stadium last weekend. The band, split up into singers, guitarists, bassists, and drummers, performed a revue of rock and roll history.Among that revue was the song “Rebel Rebel,” played as a tribute to the late great David Bowie.
