Roger Maxwell Chapman has already written rock history with this famous band 'Family' but after having left the band in 1973 together with the songwriter and guitarist Charlie Whitney, he wanted to make a go of their new band the 'Streetwalkers'. It worked out because his bleating vibrato and pure energy were unique. The biggest public German broadcasting service (WDR) recorded several of his concerts, first of the 'Streetwalkers' in COlogne in 1975 and after their breakup in 1976 of the soloist 'Chappo' Chapman with his band 'The Shortlist' in Hamburg in 1979 and in Essen in 1981. It was the 9th Rockpalast night and everywhere in Germany people celebrated with friends and beer in front of the TV screens. Rockpalast became cult!
