The original Last Waltz was staged at San Francisco's Winterland Ballroom in November 1976 when Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Eric Clapton, Neil Diamond, Emmylou Harris, Joni Mitchell, Van Morrison, Muddy Waters and several other stars contributed guest cameos to a concert that Martin Scorsese turned into an iconic documentary film.
