It’s that time.  Let’s Do This Day In Music History Thing.  Lot’s to look back on today.  From Joe Walsh To Elton John, let’s do this.


Bob Welch, an early member of Fleetwood Mac who enjoyed a successful solo career with hits such as ‘Ebony Eyes,’ was found dead after an apparent suicide at home in Nashville.
Eagles guitarist Joe Walsh was granted a restraining order against an elderly neighbor who allegedly threatened to kill him. The man was also ordered to pay more than $1,500 in legal fees.
2007 – Bo Diddley
The funeral of guitarist and singer Bo Diddley took place in Gainesville, Florida.
Hanson started a three-week run at No.1 on the UK singles chart with ‘MMMbop’.
David Bowie played a concert in West Berlin in front of the Reichstag with the speakers pointing towards the nearby Berlin Wall where thousands of young East Berliners stood and listened.
Led Zeppelin played the first of six sold-out nights at Madison Square Garden, in New York City during their 11th and final North American tour. Playing a 3 hour set, tickets cost $8.50 – $10.50.
Elton John’s ninth studio album Captain Fantastic And The Brown Dirt Cowboys, went to No.1 on the US album chart, the first album ever to enter the US chart at No.1. (where it stayed for seven weeks)
