It’s yet another day at The College of Rock n’ Roll Knowledge. Yesterday’s entry was prolific. Today’s, not so much.
Today’s action in rock history:
November 21, 1960: George Harrison, merely 17 years old, is deported back home from Germany because he is too young to play with the band. They are forced to play without him at The Kaiserkeller Club in Hamburg.
November 21, 1964: The Supremes made it four weeks with their #1 R & B song, Baby Love.
The Zombies, one damned fine band, had one of the biggest hits of their career with She’s Not There at #5.
November 21, 1969: T-Rex played at The Free Trade Hall in Manchester, England.
November 21, 1970: Two months after his death, Jimi Hendrix had the #1 song in the UK with Voodoo Chile.
November 21, 1975: Queen releases the album A Night At The Opera in the UK.
November 21, 1980: Steely Dan releases the album Gaucho, which includes appearances by guitarists Rick Derringer and Mark Knopfler.
November 21, 2013: Forty-three years after their break-up, The Beatles had their 31st Top Ten album with On Air–Live at The BBC, debuting at #7 on the Billboard 200.
That’s today’s light lesson. Hey, it’s Saturday, so that’s a good thing. We’ll be back with today’s line-up in just a bit.
