“Like If ‘Jersey Boys’ Had The Four Seasons” – Little Steven Explains The Rascals “Once Upon A Dream”

Van Zandt felt that simply reuniting the original members would be great, but he also wanted to tell the band’s tale. He told CBS Local, “People know the music. The Rascals had 18 hits in five years, three #1 singles, so people know ‘Groovin’,’ ‘People Got To Be Free,’ ‘Good Lovin’,’ ‘A Beautiful Morning,’ but do they really know the band? The answer is ‘no.’ I want to do their life story a little bit, and do it in a muti-media way to make it really entertaining.”
