‘Rock Star’ finds solid ground in Wine Country
Jack Sonni grew up wanting to be a rock star. And then one day in July 1985, he found himself standing in the same back-stage line at Live Aid along with Elton John, David Bowie and Roger Daltrey, waiting to greet Prince Charles and Lady Diana – for the second time in a week.
“Prince Charles walked down the line, right up to me with his hand stretched out and said ‘Good to see you again, Jack,’” recalls Sonni. “It was ridiculous and amazing. I was living every little kid’s rock ‘n roll dream.”
