It’s Another Merry Monday in The College of Rock n’ Roll Knowledge: 12/28/2020

It’s an odd day in the College of Rock n’ Roll Knowledge today. Aside from two entries, all of the events seem to have happened in 1968. It was, as Frank Sinatra said, a very good year musically. Devastating in others.

The year that changed the world.

Here’s today’s lesson:

December 28, 1968: The Doors released Touch Me. Believe it or not, the song’s opening guitar riff was inspired by the opening of C’mon Marianne by The Four Seasons. I shit you not. (And I think that’s probably the only song I like by The Four Seasons, come to think of it.) Touch Me would peak at #3 in America.

These other musical events also happened on this day:

The Beatles’ ninth studio album, The Beatles (aka, The White Album), hits #1 in the US.

The Rolling Stones‘ Beggars Banquet debuts at #3 on the Album chart.

Pink Floyd, Jethro Tull, Jeff Beck and The Pretty Things appeared at the Flight to Lowlands Paradise II festival at the Margriethal-Jaarbeurs in Utrecht, Netherlands.

Marvin Gaye remained at #1 on the R & B chart with I Heard It Through The Grapevine. I’ll say it again, he remade Gladys Knight’s version, which was released in 1967. Hers also went to #1. I love Marvin, but the record needs to be set straight.

In what could be viewed as a dry run for Woodstock, Joni Mitchell, Three Dog Night, The Turtles, Fleetwood Mac, Marvin Gaye, The Grass Roots, Chuck Berry, Steppenwolf, The Box Tops, Canned Heat, Jr. Walker & The All Stars, Procol Harum, The Grateful Dead, Jose Feliciano, The Paul Butterfield Blues Band and others performed at the Miami Pop Festival at Gulfstream Park in Hallandale, Florida.

Whew.

December 28, 1970: John Lennon released the song Mother.

December 28, 1983: Depressed by mounting debt and his personal problems, Dennis Wilson of The Beach Boys drowned while diving near his boat in Marina Del Rey, California. Brian Wilson, dealing with his own issues, did not attend the funeral.

Born On This Day

December 28, 1914: Roebuck “Pops” Staples, songwriter/guitarist/singer for The Staple Singers (I’ll Take You There, Respect Yourself) was born in Winona, Mississippi.

December 28, 1938: Charlie Neville (The Neville Brothers) was born in New Orleans, Louisiana.

December 28, 1946: Edgar Winter, multi-instrumentalist, leader of The Edgar Winter Group, and younger brother of Johnny, was born in Beaumont, Texas.

December 28, 1948: Joseph “Ziggy” Modeliste, drummer for The Meters, was born in New Orleans, Louisiana.

And that is today’s lesson from the College of Rock n’ Roll Knowledge!

It’s Totally Tuesday Bluesday! As Willie Dixon says, “The blues are the roots; everything else is the fruits,” December 15, 2020

Here we are, Blues Lovers! We’ve got a total blues and blues rock day lined up for you today. It’s amazing when something like this just kind of comes together without much planning!

Johnny Winter. ‘Nuff said.

Here’s today’s Tuesday Bluesday line-up:

11:00 a.m. Johnny Winter Live at The Bottom Line, New York, September 5, 1978

Johnny Winter is an American blues singer and guitarist remembered mostly for his high-energy blues rock style and live performances throughout the sixties and seventies. He also produced three Grammy Award-winning albums for blues great Muddy Waters.

4:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Led Zeppelin IV by Led Zeppelin

Led Zeppelin has long been known for its hard-driving blues rock style, so it’s only fitting that the Album of the Week falls on Tuesday Bluesday!

7:00 p.m. Wynton Marsalis & Eric Clapton Play the Blues, Live at Lincoln Center, April 7-9, 2011

In 2011, blues guitarist Eric Clapton and jazz trumpeter Wynton Marsalis got together for a night of vintage blues. The songs were chosen by Clapton and arranged by Wynton Marsalis. They played with the orchestra from Jazz at Lincoln Center.

Just a reminder. We stream 24/7, schedule great programming, charge no money for any of it, and ask for no personal information. Did I miss anything? Oh, yeah, our DJ isn’t an incessant talker either.
