22nd Oct 1969, Led Zeppelin II was released on Atlantic Records in the UK. The Jimmy Page produced album which was recorded over six months between four European and three American tours, peaked at No.1 in both the UK and US, going on to sell...

Daniel Grant Lots of us missed their first album, then this came and we went back and discovered Dazed and Confused and Communication Breakdown and Zep took the mantle from the Beatles just as they ended as a group. Can't believe how active Robert Plant still is!!!
José Tadeu Barros Their best album, IMHO. I love Heartbreaker, What Is and What Should Never Be, Whole Lotta Love (of course), Bring It on Home, Thank You... the whole thing.
Kevin Hicks I got laid the first time to this record. Made it through all of side 1! I'll bet a lot of peoples first time was to this record!
Jerome Evanson I was a Beatles fan. These guys scared me. Sure didn't take long to win me over though. Unbelievable talent.
Luis Torres I had it on tape years ago, possibly my favorite album by them.
Ree Robinette Jimmy Page...... Smart, Talented , Handsome- even now.❤️❤️❤️❤️
Matt St.Aubin Sheer genius.
Patricia McInerney Great Album!
Terry Brooks Hammons the day the music died

Robert Calonge "Peaked at no.1"??? How much higher could it go?

22nd Oct 1969, Paul McCartney publicly denied rumors that he was dead. The most recent of many "clues" of this Death Hoax was the fact that he was the only barefoot Beatle on the newly released Abbey Road LP cover. The story was actually started...

Andy Taylor I know someone who knew BP Fallon (Beep), a music journalist and author who knew the Beatles really well, and who assured me that Beep started the Paul is dead stuff when he picked up the phone in their office when they were all sitting around stoned, and when the journalist on the phone introduced himself, merely said, for a laugh, ' there is no truth whatsoever in the rumour that Paul died today', and put the phone down.
Steve Byrne Well when I heard him sing live at the Queens Diamond jubilee Concert I thought, if he is an imposter he is pretending to be a shit singer too. 😂
Rob Saresky It is sort of creepy that a radio station had a McCartney look a like contest in 67. If you look at the pictures of McCartney before 67 it would seem fishy.
Marie Doherty I coincidentally just started reading about this conspiracy, I had never heard the rumors. I am fully convinced the real Paul died. So many physical differences from the Paul's. And Billy an up and coming musician mysteriously disappeared after that date. fascinating!!
Jennifer Bruneel In Ringo's latest interview, he says Paul did die in a car crash and was replaced by a look-alike William Shears/Billy Shears. http://worldnewsdailyreport.com/former-beatle-ringo-starr-claims-the-real-paul-mccartney-died-in-1966-and-was-replaced-by-look-alike/
Bill Quillen I never felt the same about the Beatles after it was revealed that this was a hoax perpetrated to promote the White Album in lieu of performing on tour.
Anthony Emilut I don't know where I stand on this. I don't really believe. Although I recently watched a doc where George talks about this on tapes. And he pointed out a bunch of clues that Paul was dead that are on the cover of Sgt. Pepper
Ric Herrington in high school i remember calling apple hq in london witih friends from cleveland ohio. when the operator said $23.00 we hit the pay phone with a rubber mallet many times to ring the dinger. the operator then said 'thank you'! apple blew us off as they would.
Carl Pettersen Honestly, is there anybody that is that stupid, they would believe this???? You would have had a whole bottle anti-intelligence pills the night before to be that stupid.......
Ken Jones There is a reverse recording featuring the words 'Paul Is Dead'... It's on YouTube, which I suspect is where this started. Around the time of the Strawberry Fields sessions...
Jim Hopes It's not proof to me. Look at all the comments below that support the existence of "Faul". Short of DNA how can this be proven? Of course Billy Shears denies it. Ringo doesn't!
Donald Banca Billy Shears is alive and well and living with long time lover and companion Elvis🙀😂😱
David Wade Even if it were true. The Beatles impact on music will go on forever.
Mark Byrne Charlotte, back to the Abbey Road stuff 😯
Kevin Thompson I remember this magazine. I was just a kid, but my older cousin was a teenager and had this magazine .
Rick Thomas I spent a lot of time time investigating this quandary! The number of ironic clues there are, in itself, IS IRONIC
Dennis Lackey Paul 3 Paul Die Chicago remember said over radio only for 1 Day his girlfriend fell off map same time look it up Paul #2 Die Cocaine OD Wings Died
Mike Begley He blew his mind out in a car...he didn't notice that the light had changed
Bryan Simmons Queen Elizabeth Il does not grant knighthoods to imposters. Very bad form.
Rhona Glassburn I watched a documentary where George left something saying the same thing Paul died.
Shaun Turner Didn't tour after 66.... made studio albums and Paul grew 2 inches taller
Frank Malfitano The real McCartney went to the moon when America faked the Apollo missions!
Reysol Rodriguez The Great Hoax
David Jones Tabloids never know when to shut up.

22nd Oct 1966, The Beach Boys ‘Good Vibrations’ made its debut on the US singles chart. Written by Brian Wilson and Mike Love, the track was recorded over 6 weeks in four different Los Angeles studios, at a cost of over $16,000. The recording engineer...

Hugo Arredondo Beach Boys, underestimated band. Just do something, take a Beatles album and the closest previous one of the Beach Boys and you will see they were ahead...just saying.
Frances Tock Brian Wilson is celebrating 30 years since the release of " Pet Sounds " with a tour. He and his band will perform the album in it's entirety. Tonight he is on at the Royal Albert Hall , London. I wish I was going to this sold out gig.
Tom Harms Just read Mike Love's book and am finishing Brian's today--both great looks at the story of this iconic American band. Both of their descriptions of the creation of "Good Vibrations" are illuminating and interesting.
Douglas McCarley Brian was a visionary, like Lennon and McCartney, his compositions during that period showed us "out of the box" thinking that changed the way popular music would be orchestrated by the likes of; ELO, Pink Floyd, Queen, etc...
Samuel Stegora Love the Beach Boys I have a CD of their greatest hits. Love I Get Around, Fun, Fun, Fun, Help me Rhonda, God Only Knows and Little Duece Coupe. Have Good Vibration s too. Great songs, Great group.
Chris J. Price I remember first hearing this in late '66/early '67 (age 5), up there with the Dr. Who theme for me... "Wow!, Dad what's that? - how do you make that sound?." B| (y)
Paul Lindley One of those landmark recordings in the history of music. Pushed the boundaries for everyone else to attain too. Brilliant single.
Greg Furr Brian Wilson was the only Beach Boy to actually play on the recording.
Gordon Cooke The Beatles are by far th larges selling group,even today,I prefer the Bee gees
Andrew Hewitt Freak out by The Mothers of Invention
Rick Anthony I remember buying this 45 at the local drug store when I was in high school.
Tom Bergeron Guy was genius, too bad he was so troubled. Wrote some great tunes!
Tim Bonhomme The 2016 tour is called 50th anniversary tour of Good Vibrations
Brian Talcott Got to see Brian last weekend. Best, most fun concert I've been to in a long time. And yes, they played this!
Fabio Pasqualoni One of the greatest songs ever recorded!
Jim Marshall Beatles Sergeant Peppers overshadows their pet sounds
Jean Campbell My first show I went to with all the girls we hung with
Anthony Flores Awesome album!
Daniel Barbour "I need 50,000 Didgeridoos!!!"
Steve Roesch https://youtu.be/Eab_beh07HU
Ben Stevens Landmark song
Robert Wells The bitch boys. HaHaHa!🖕
Joshua Rodriguez 💙💙💙💙💙
Alexander Porteous Thomas Seagrave
Rich Predmore One of the most unique songs ever written and played, most amazingly, live! Incredible art!!

21st Oct 1976, Keith Moon played his last show with The Who at the end of a North American tour at Maple Leaf Gardens, Toronto. On September 7, 1978, Moon died of an overdose of a sedative Heminevrin, that had been prescribed to prevent seizures...

John P. Riley What a drummer! Lots of times, drummers are considered by many to be the "expendable" members of a rock band...easily replaced. But The Who just wasn't the same without him. I wish I could have seen him live, but alas, I was only 11 when he died.
Kerry Bestward He was larger than life, but any 6 year old could play the drums better than him.
Jonathan David Harris Keith Moon's last ever night I believe yes was with Both Paul and Linda McCartney at a restaurant in London .Crazy that Keith Moon's photograph of both him with John Lennon and Paul McCartney was the last one taken of John and Paul together in 1974 in Los Angeles ...True .✌👓✔
Katie A. Girard Love you Keith Moon your one of my favorites. Great drummer! 💖❤✌😄😁🎵🎵
Wanda Swisher I know that was one of the saddest days in the history of rock 'n' roll. Rest in peace Keith. You were awesome
Henrry Castillo One of the drummers Keith, we miss you man.
Mike Gale What an awesome legend, wish you lived on Keith... Shame you passed mate.
Pierre Danger Fuqua *sigh* Thank you for sharing your bright light with all of mere mortals. You are missed.
John Jarrell Saw 1 of the shows (Murfreesboro, TN) on this tour! Fantastic!
Ken Pearce Awesome drummer, great fills, tragic loss way to soon, one of the best....
Mark Tynan Look at the cover of Keith's last album with The Who in the same year he died. He's sitting backwards on a chair. The words stencilled on the back of the chair are....?
Phil Bailey Keith Moon and John Bonham. Best ever.
Jeff Meserve Lead drummer of the Who!
David M. Cesefske Sr. Moon the Loon!!!
Robert Star One of the greatest ever. R. I.P
Robert Bryans one of the top 10 shows i saw the who at maple leaf gardens in 1976

21st Oct 1965, Bill Black, Elvis Presley's bass player, (1954-57), died four months after receiving surgery to remove a brain tumour, aged 39. With guitarist Scotty Moore, and Elvis Presley on rhythm guitar, Black played on ‘That's All Right (Mama)’, Heartbreak Hotel, ‘Baby Let's Play...

Richard Mortara I've been into that studio. There is, no doubt, a special aura in it, given Elvis, The Big O, Johnny Cash and others recorded in it. It's small but packed with history.
John McKenzie Sad to here way to young. They were a talented back up band for Elvis
Wanda Swisher That is very sad. I'm sure they were all devastated.
Kevin Ray Best 1950's Elvis impersonator that I've seen is Travis LeDoyt. Definitely worth catching one of his shows!!
Roland Hutson His combo played at our college. He was open to talking to his fans after his show. Nice guy. He also was one of the opening acts for the Beatles in the Gator Bowl, 09/11/64, Jacksonville ,Florida
Stephen KP Baxter Did Elvis ever visit Bill?
Ranieri Romano RIP GUY. ....🎩🎩🎩
Song Surgeon Who else thinks this is cool ?

20th Oct 1977, Ronnie Van Zant, Steve Gaines and Cassie Gaines from Lynyrd Skynyrd were all killed along with manager Dean Kilpatrick when their rented plane ran out of fuel and crashed into a densely wooded thicket in the middle of a swamp in Gillsburg,...

Thomas Coleman I was in 6th grade in Marysville, Wa. Every morning our teacher would ask if there was anything anyone in the class would like to discuss before class began. I told of the wreck. Nobody in class including the teacher knew who they were. I told my Dad when I got back home, he said "Son, you are the coolest kid in your class." I have never forgot it. 😉
Craig Buchanan This band will always be a part of my entire life regardless of hard drinking, hard living habits. Their talent, hard work and loyalty is beyond any bands of today. They inspired so many. Thank you Gary Rossington for continuing the Skynyrd name and Legacy. RIP Cassie, Ronnie, Steve ,and Dean.
G. Hollis Humberson I was on my way back home from classes at WCJC. It was in the afternoon and I had to pull off the side of the road. I was in shock and crying. I had just seen them earlier, rocked out to them live in the Sam Houston Coliseum. A sad, sad day!
Brian Altenbach The plane did NOT run out of fuel! One of the pilots was attempting to divert the fuel from one engine to the other because of a mechanical problem. Unfortunately, he hit the wrong switch and dumped it all instead.
Mel Tronebar Who didn't crank up "Freebird" at a kegger party? That song immediately brings me to the best parties I've ever been to. Damn, good times and the best music!
Norman Hunt That was a sad day. I was twelve. And here in Florida especially. It was like Elvis dying. The band made a great comeback some ten years later. With younger brother Johnny. But was never the same. What could've been. What a shame.
Ronnie Vance Ronnie Van Zant was actually killed by a reel-to-reel tape recorder that flew from the back of the plane and hit him in the head,he would have survived but when the pilot notified them they were going to crash he grabbed a pillow and move to the front of the plane. According to an interview with Artimus Pyle.
Tony Smith A shame..old fucked up plane, incompetent aircrew(drunks) I was at football practice when I got the news..they were my favorite band,I was really getting into the "gimme back my bullets" album at the time, on 8 track tape of course! Lynyrd Skynyrd died that day with Ronnie..RIP
Anna Evanson-Hoffman We have the album with the picture of the entire band walking out of flames. Shortly after its release this horrible tragedy occurred. The album was recalled and a new jacket design was issued. What a loss for the music world!
Kevin Fulgham Original Street Suvivors album on (left).After crash they removed flames,(right).
Kathy Jo North So I read an article that one of the other surviving passengers walked bleeding with broken bones and concussion to a neighboring farm for help and was shot because he scared the farmer. Because y'know, zombies.
Drusilla Ann Reilly Young I was in 9th grade in woodworking class and a boy I knew came into class and told me they were in a plane crash I always remember that day
Haroon Ozzy Heard a rumor that van zant was sippin a bottle of jack saying "when it's your time to go you gotta go" during the planes fuck up because some people survived. Not sure heard it on a podcast interesting tho.
Geoff Van Buren Saw them in Mannheim, Germany on their first tour of Europe. I am an avid concert goer, and that show is in my top 5. Sad they had to leave us far too soon.
Andrew Mikula The one and unfortunattly only time I saw the original band was at Cleveland Stadium and they made two moves that surprised me. Unfurled that gigantic Confederate flag and then opened thier show with Working For MCA. It was a great song to open with and ba;lsy, taking a swipe at your own record company *Ta should signed the contract.. shoulda signed today.. We'llmake you lots of money.. Working for MCA) Tremendous riffing
Jim Kinney I read last night. Billy Powell said he was relieved when he heard van zant was dead. Because the beatings would stop. He implied Ronnie was a mean ass street fighter and if u disagreed about ANYTHING he beat your ass. That was the first i heard of that
Charles Alexander Not to mention after the crash Artimus Pyle climbed out of the wreck with massive injuries. He still managed to walk a mile and find a farmhouse to get help. He was shot by the farmers son who mistook him for an intruder.
Gerald Belkofer Let's make it clear, their plane didn't run out of fuel. The pilot panicked and accidentally hit the fuel release switch, which is used in case of and emergency crash to prevent an explosion.
Pearl Roxx They had been in town June 77 at a monsters of rock concert, I missed the show not knowing I'd never have the opportunity again... sucks!
Sam Pulvirenti Was an aspiring young musician st the time and they were forefront in my development. When I heard the sad news it was like the light went out. See you all in heaven some day🏆
D.b. Tweedy First Elvis in August then Lynard Skynyrd. I was 9 years old
Tracey Ring 77 lost these guys, Marc Bolan and Elvis. Terrible year for music fans.
Cliff States Lottsa young folks on this thread. I was 20. And just seen them in concert. 2nd greatest southern rock band of all time.
Lisa Sibley I remember that day well another time in music that changed the world.
Carol Campbell Wilson My friend Jackie played their music all the time. She loved the Allman Brothers and Lynyrd Skynyrd! Free Byrd.
