Welcome to a Monday!
Let’s get it crackin’ with some music history…..
It was on this day in 1965, that James Brown released the single “Papa’s Got a Brand New Bag.” It went on to sell over 2 million copies and receive the Grammy Award for Best Rhythm & Blues Recording.
On this day in 1967, after only a handful of dates as the opening act for the Monkees, Jimi Hendrix flipped off the audience – that wouldn’t stop screaming for Davy Jones – at New York’s Forest Hills Stadium, and left the tour.
The Beatles’ animated feature film “Yellow Submarine” premiered at the London Pavilion on this day in 1968. The real Beatles participated only in the closing scene of the film; other actors voiced their cartoon counterparts.
On this day in 1975, Bob Marley and the Wailers played the first of two nights in London. Both nights were recorded for the November released ‘live’ album, featuring the single “No Woman No Cry.”
Heart released “Magic Man.” on this day in 1976. The song peaked at #9 on Billboard and the “Magic Man” in question was her then boyfriend, band manager Michael Fisher. Nancy was involved with the groups guitar player Roger, who was Michael’s younger brother, at the same time.
And finally, on this day in 1992, Guns N’ Roses, Metallica and Faith No More opened their tour at RFK Stadium.
