Led Zeppelin’s John Bonham True Story

Led Zeppelin’s John Bonham True Rock Star Story

In 1970, the band held a press conference in a Copenhagen art gallery. A critic started conversing with Bonham about a painting. Bonham cut him short and asked, “Do you want to know what I think of this paintin?” The critic answered, “Yes.” Bonham lifted the artwork off the wall and smashed it on the critic’s head. Bonham asked, “Are there any other paintings you’d like me to critique tonight?”

The Rolling Stones Some Girls Reissue

http://www.flickr.com/photos/28648431@N00/62164680

Enthused by the contemporary influences of punk and disco, the Stones’ 1978 offering Some Girls was easily their best since Exile on Main Street, spawning such hits as “Miss You”, “Beast of Burden” and “Respectable”.

And as the extra dozen outtakes confirm, there was plenty to spare, from the rollicking R&B of “So Young” and Chicago blues of “When You’re Gone” to the frowsy country style of “No Spare Parts” and the Hank Williams cover “You Win Again”, with Ronnie Wood’s lachrymose pedal steel curling around the songs. The opener “Claudine” is a Jerry Lee Lewis-style rockabilly rave-up, in which Jagger doggedly breaches PC protocol with his advice to keep the safety catch on when pistol-whipping one’s wife. It all adds up to probably the best Stones album since… well, since Some Girls, actually.

Jimmy Page found guilty of possessing cocaine.

Led Zeppelin’s Jimmy Page was given a 12-month conditional discharge after being found guilty of possessing cocaine.

Jimmy Page, Led Zeppelin
Led Zeppelin broke up in 1980 following the death of drummer John Bonham at Page’s home, The Old Mill House at Clewer in Berkshire.

For some time Jimmy Page refused to touch a guitar out of sadness for the loss of his friend Bonham, but he eventually made a return to the stage at a Jeff Beck show in March 1981 at the Hammersmith Odeon.

Also in 1981 Jimmy Page joined with Yes bassist Chris Squire and drummer Alan White to form a supergroup called XYZ (for ex-Yes-Zeppelin). They rehearsed several times, but the project was shelved. Demos of these sessions have turned up on bootleg and they reveal that some of the material emerged on later projects, notably The Firm’s “Fortune Hunter” and Yes songs “Mind Drive” and “Can You Imagine?”. Page would later join Yes on stage in 1984 at Westfalenhalle in Dortmund, Germany, playing “I’m Down”.

In 1982 Jimmy Page collaborated with director Michael Winner to record the Death Wish II soundtrack. This, and several subsequent Page recordings including Death Wish III soundtrack (1985), were recorded and produced at his own recording studio, The Sol in Cookham, which he had purchased from Gus Dudgeon in the early 1980s.

Mick Jagger apologizes for Some Girls racist lyrics

Mick Jagger apologizes for racist lyrics in “Some Girls” on October 6, 1978.

The Rolling Stones, Some Girls, Mick Jagger

Some Girls is the 14th British and 16th American studio album by The Rolling Stones, released in 1978 on Rolling Stones Records, catalogue COC 39108. It peaked at #1 on the Billboard 200, and became the band’s biggest-selling album in the United States, and has been certified by the RIAA as having six million copies sold as of 2000.

Mick Jagger is generally regarded as the principal creative force behind Some Girls, a conception that, though disputable (Richards was present at all of the sessions), is plausible considering Richards’ various legal entanglements at the time (see below).

Jagger claimed in a 1995 interview to have written a great number of the album’s songs (though when the amount was pointed out to him he denied that the record was mostly his own), including its signature song, “Miss You”. In addition to punk, Jagger claims to have been influenced by dance music, most notably disco, during the recording of Some Girls, and cites New York City as a major inspiration for the album, an explanation for his lyrical preoccupation with the city throughout.

There was some controversy surrounded the lyrics that Mick Jagger wrote to the title song, an extended musing on women of various nationalities and races.

The line “Black girls just wanna get fucked all night” drew strong protests from various groups, including Jesse Jackson’s PUSH. Jagger famously replied, “I’ve always said, you can’t take a joke, it’s too fucking bad,” although he was reportedly more conciliatory to Jackson in private, as he claimed the song was intended as a parody of racist attitudes. Saturday Night Live cast member Garrett Morris would have the final say on the controversy with a mock-editorial on the show’s Weekend Update segment: After giving the impression that he was going to openly criticize the Stones, he quoted a sanitized version of the “Black girls just…” line, then stated “I have one thing to say to you, Mr. Mick Jagger… where are these women?!?”

Johnny Cash arrested crossing the Mexican border in 1965

Johnny Cash was arrested crossing the Mexican border into El Paso, Texas after customs officials found 100’s of pills in his guitar case. He received a suspended jail sentence and a $1,000 fine on October 5, 1965.

johnny Cash

Johnny Cash (February 26, 1932 – September 12, 2003) was an American singer-songwriter, actor, and author, who has been called one of the most influential musicians of the 20th century.

Although he is primarily remembered as a country music artist, his songs and sound spanned many other genres including rockabilly and rock and roll—especially early in his career—as well as blues, folk, and gospel. This crossover appeal led to Cash being inducted in the Country Music Hall of Fame, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and Gospel Music Hall of Fame. Late in his career, Cash covered songs by several rock artists.

Johnny Cash was known for his deep, distinctive bass-baritone voice; for the “boom-chicka-boom” sound of his Tennessee Three backing band; for his rebelliousness, coupled with an increasingly somber and humble demeanor; for providing free concerts inside prison walls; and for his dark performance clothing, which earned him the nickname “The Man in Black”.

He traditionally started his concerts by saying, “Hello, I’m Johnny Cash.” and usually following it up with his standard “Folsom Prison Blues.”

In June 1965, his truck caught fire due to an overheated wheel bearing, triggering a forest fire that burned several hundred acres in Los Padres National Forest in California. When the judge asked Cash why he did it, Cash said, “I didn’t do it, my truck did, and it’s dead, so you can’t question it.” The fire destroyed 508 acres (2.06 km2), burning the foliage off three mountains and killing 49 of the refuge’s 53 endangered condors. Cash was unrepentant: “I don’t care about your damn yellow buzzards.” The federal government sued him and was awarded $125,172 ($871,303 today). Cash eventually settled the case and paid $82,001. He said he was the only person ever sued by the government for starting a forest fire.

Although Johnny Cash carefully cultivated a romantic outlaw image, he never served a prison sentence. Despite landing in jail seven times for misdemeanors, each stay lasted only a single night. His most infamous run-in with the law occurred while on tour in 1965, when he was arrested by a narcotics squad in El Paso, Texas. The officers suspected that he was smuggling heroin from Mexico, but it was 688 Dexedrine capsules and 475 Equanil tablets that the singer had hidden inside his guitar case. Because they were prescription drugs rather than illegal narcotics, he received a suspended sentence.

Johnny Cash was later arrested on May 11, 1965, in Starkville, Mississippi, for trespassing late at night onto private property to pick flowers. (This incident gave the spark for the song “Starkville City Jail”, which he spoke about on his live At San Quentin prison album.)

Pink Floyd plays Pompeii

Pink Floyd played the first of four nights at the Roman Ampitheater, Pompeii, Italy for their Live in Pompeii album on October 4, 1971.

Pink Floyd, Pink Floyd Pompeii

Pink Floyd: Live at Pompeii is a 1972 film featuring Pink Floyd performing six songs in the ancient Roman amphitheatre in Pompeii, Italy.

It was directed by Adrian Maben and recorded in the month of October using studio-quality 24-track recorders without a live audience.

Pink Floyd performances of “Echoes,” “A Saucerful of Secrets,” and “One of These Days” were filmed from October 4, 1971 to October 7, 1971.

The remaining songs were filmed in a Paris studio, along with additional front projection footage for insertion into the Pompeii performances. The sequences in Paris were filmed in late 1971/early 1972, and can be distinguished by the absence of Richard Wright’s beard. This version was released in cinemas in September 1972 and is also included on the DVD edition as an extra feature.

In August 1974, another version was released combining the original film with supposed recording sessions of The Dark Side of the Moon at Abbey Road Studios. These sessions were actually staged for the film, as the recording of the album had been completed when these sessions were filmed in January 1973 and the band was mixing the album at the time.

Aerosmith members bailed out thirty fans

Aerosmith members bailed thirty fans out of jail after they were arrested for smoking pot during an Aerosmith concert at Fort Wayne Coliseum on October 3, 1978.

Aerosmith

Aerosmith is an American rock band, sometimes referred to as “The Bad Boys from Boston” and “America’s Greatest Rock and Roll Band”.

Their style, which is rooted in blues-based hard rock, has come to also incorporate elements of pop, heavy metal, and rhythm and blues, and has inspired many subsequent rock artists. The band was formed in Boston, Massachusetts in 1970. Guitarist Joe Perry and bassist Tom Hamilton, originally in a band together called the Jam Band, met up with singer Steven Tyler, drummer Joey Kramer, and guitarist Ray Tabano, and formed Aerosmith. In 1971, Tabano was replaced by Brad Whitford, and the band began developing a following in Boston.

Aerosmith were signed to Columbia Records in 1972, and released a string of multi-platinum albums, beginning with their 1973 eponymous debut album, followed by their 1974 album Get Your Wings.

In 1975, the band broke into the mainstream with the album Toys in the Attic, and their 1976 follow-up Rocks cemented their status as hard rock superstars. By the end of the 1970s, they were among the most popular hard rock bands in the world and developed a loyal following of fans, often referred to as the “Blue Army”

Donovan made his US television debut on Shindig!

Donovan made his US television debut on Shindig! along with The Hollies, The Turtles and the Dave Clark Five on September 30, 1965

Donovan

Donovan (born Donovan Philips Leitch; 10 May 1946) is a Scottish singer-songwriter and guitarist.

Emerging from the British folk scene, he developed an eclectic and distinctive style that blended folk, jazz, pop, psychedelia, and world music. He currently lives with his family in County Cork in Ireland.

Donovan came to fame in the United Kingdom in early 1965 with a series of live performances on the pop TV series, Ready Steady Go!

, and his popularity spread to the US and other countries. After signing with the British label Pye Records in 1965, he recorded a handful of singles and two albums in the folk music vein. After extricating himself from his original management contract, he began a long and successful collaboration with leading independent record producer Mickie Most, scoring a string of hits in the UK, the US, Australia and other countries. His successful records in the 1960s included the UK hits “Catch the Wind” and “Colours” in 1965, while “Sunshine Superman” topped the US Billboard Hot 100 chart the following year, and reached number two in Britain. Donovan was the first artist to be signed to CBS/Epic Records by then-new Administrative Vice President Clive Davis, who later became head of the CBS Record empire.

Donovan was one of the leading British recording artists of his day. He produced a series of hit albums and singles between 1965 and 1970. He became a friend of leading pop musicians including Joan Baez, Brian Jones, Bruce Springsteen, and The Beatles. He influenced both John Lennon and Paul McCartney when he taught them his finger-picking guitar style in 1968. Donovan’s commercial fortunes waned after he parted ways with Mickie Most in 1969, and he left the music industry for a time.

He continued to perform and record sporadically in the 1970s and 1980s, but gradually fell from favour. His gentle musical style and hippie image was scorned by critics, especially after the advent of punk rock. Donovan withdrew from performing and recording several times during his career, but he underwent a revival in the 1990s with the emergence of the rave scene in Britain. Late in the decade, he recorded the 1996 album Sutras with producer and long-time fan Rick Rubin and in 2004 released a new album, Beat Cafe. On 28 September 2010, Donovan was nominated for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame 2011

thirtysomething TV Series debuts on ABC-TV

thirtysomething TV Series debuts on ABC-TV on September 29, 1987

thirtysomething, tv series

Thirtysomething is an American television drama about a group of baby boomers in their late thirties.

It was created by Marshall Herskovitz and Edward Zwick for MGM/UA Television Group (through United Artists Television) and The Bedford Falls Company, and aired on ABC. It premiered in the U.S. on September 29, 1987. It lasted four seasons, with the last of its 85 episodes airing on May 28, 1991.

The title of the show was designed as thirtysomething (with a lowercase “t”) by Kathie Broyles, who combined the words of the original title, Thirty Something.

In 2002, Thirtysomething was ranked #19 on TV Guide’s 50 Greatest TV Shows of All Time.

Thirtysomething depicts the lives of a group of baby boomer yuppies during the late 1980s. They are bonded by their involvement with the peace movement and counterculture of the 1960s during their youth, a past that is in marked contrast to their current, middle-class lives in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Although seen as an ensemble drama, the series tended to revolve around husband and wife Michael Steadman (Ken Olin) and Hope Murdoch (Mel Harris), who provided the focal point for the group. Michael’s cousin is photographer Melissa Steadman (Melanie Mayron), and his business partner is Elliot Weston (Timothy Busfield), who has a troubled marriage with his wife Nancy (Patricia Wettig). Michael’s best friend is Gary Shepherd (Peter Horton), who eventually married Susannah (Patricia Kalember). Hope’s best friend is Ellyn Warren (Polly Draper).
