On this day in rock history:
- 1961 – Bob Dylan made his concert debut at Carnegie Hall. 58 people attended (mostly Bob’s personal friends). Bob’s take of the box office was $20
- 1965 – Paul McCartney’s “Scrambled Eggs” (also known as “Yesterday”) hit number one on the charts
- 1969 – Abbey Road, the Beatles’ final masterpiece, was released in the UK (yes, the Beatles get more than one mention because, well, they’re the Beatles)
- 1975 – Pink Floyd’s concept album Wish You Were Here became the number one LP in America (Free cup of virtual coffee for anyone who knows what “LP” is short for.)
- 1980 – Queen’s “Another One Bites the Dust” rather prophetically became the longest running number one hit of the band’s career
- 1988 – John Lennon’s album Imagine was released worldwide…and the rest is history
“Don’t stand so close” to that truck. “They’ll be watching you.”
It’s not too late…to whippet good.
“There’s a sign on the wall, but she wants to be sure…”
Spoon some jazz on me.
Actually, the Who are playing at a different venue that night.
