Today in Musical History

[tweetmeme source=”bucentral” only_single=false]Welcome back everyone, I hope you had a good summer.

Today, it’s raining outside. It is cold out. The sky is grey. Today feels dreary, sad, and all around unimportant. But wait! Today is the anniversary of many musically historical events. Today is an important day indeed! So lets take a look back, shall we??

*cue Wayne’s World dream sequence: doodly doo, doodly doo, doodly doo*

… On September 7th …

1936: Buddy Holly is born, who would later influence the Beatles and the Rolling Stones.

1949: Gloria Gaynor is born. She is known for her hit song “I Will Survive”

1967: David Guetta, a French DJ, is born. In 2009, he will release “Sexy B***h ft. Akon”

1968: Jimmy Page, Robert Plant, John Paul Jones and John Bonham made their live debut as Led Zeppelin (billed as Yard Birds) at Teen Club Box 45 in Gladsaxe, Denmark. A local review stated; “Their performance and their music were absolutely flawless, and the music continued to ring nicely in the ears for some time after the curtains were drawn after their show. We can therefore conclude that the new Yardbirds are at least as good as the old ones were”

1978: Keith Moon, drummer of The Who, dies of an overdose.

This is just a sample of his talent:

1985: Ringo Starr became the first Beatle to become a grandfather when his son Zak and his wife Sarah had a daughter Tatia Jayne.

1985: David Bowie and Mick Jagger were at No.1 on the UK singes chart with their version of the Martha Reeves and The Vandellas 1964 hit ‘Dancing In The Street.’

1996: Michael Jackson played the first date on the HIStory World Tour, his third solo world concert tour, at Letna Park, Prague in the Czech Republic.

2003: US singer, songwriter, Warren Zevon dies. He recorded over 15 solo albums, and had the 1978 US No.21 single ‘Werewolves Of London’.

No maybe the rain doesn’t seem so bad today…
