Good Morning, Students! It’s an easy day at the College of Rock n’ Roll Knowledge. I use about six different sources for my information and, in comparison to other days, November 28 was relatively quiet!
Pay attention. Here’s today’s lesson:
November 28, 1960: Elvis Presley had his 43rd hit and his 15th #1 hit in just four years with Are You Lonesome Tonight.
November 28, 1962: The Beatles performed at the Cavern Club in Liverpool, and then performed at a dance for the staff of Lewis Department Store at the 527 Club, also in Liverpool.
November 28, 1963: She Loves You by The Beatles returns to #1 in the UK.
November 28, 1964: Willie Nelson made his debut on the stage of The Grand Ole Opry when he opened for Roger Miller.
November 28, 1966: Paul Revere and The Raiders released their great single Good Thing.
November 28, 1968: Deep Purple played the first of four nights at the Fillmore West in San Francisco on their first tour of North America.
November 28, 1970: Bob Dylan owned the #1 album in the UK with New Morning.
Also on November 28, 1970, Dave Edmunds’ I Hear Your Knocking went to #1 in the UK.
Born On This Day
November 28, 1943: The great songwriter, Randy Newman, was born on this day.
And that’s all you need to know about today’s events in music history!
