Feel free to insert a joke about the “captive audience,” but there were no prisoners on Alcatraz island when The Wallflowers played there in 2002 for a “Rock the Rock” VH-1 special. It was the first

(and I’m guessing only) rock concert to be filmed on the infamous prison island

Songs played from the then-new “Red Letter Days” album included “When You’re on Top,” “ Everybody Out of the Water,” “How Good It Can Get,” “Everything I Need,” and “Too Late to Quit.” The last song listed here is a cover of Nick Lowe’s “(What’s So Funny ‘Bout) Peace, Love and Understanding.”
