3rd Dec 1979, A concert by The Who at The Riverfront Coliseum, Cincinnati, turned to disaster when 11 members of the audience were trampled to death after a stampede to claim unreserved seats, another 26 fans were injured. The concert was using 'festival seating' where...

Steve Grace The next show after this one was Providence, which the Mayor canceled because he thought it was too dangerous, even though it was not a general admission show. As someone else said, they only opened one door and created the situation for people to get hurt. It was completely the venue management's fault but the band (and their fans) took the hit. They stopped having general admission concerts after that.
Rick Smith I was in school at the University of Cincinnati. I would have been there if I had extra money for a ticket. A friend across the hall in the form went. He said at one point the surge of people was so great that his feet were off the ground and ahead of his body!
Gwen Knieriem Yeah Then they came to Detroit and the fans became violent booing off the warm up band. The clash!
Steve Fewell I wish historians and reporters would stop saying "TRAMPLED TO DEATH" for this story. The fans who died were NOT lying on the ground getting stomped by others!! They died standing up on their feet, suffocating in the surge of the crowd around them. The surge made it impossible for them to even reach the ground after death.
Norman Hunt Remember.
Sheila Dass Yuck
Ken Smith Most concerts at that venue had the same crush outside, a disaster waiting to happen. Cops would beat on the doors from inside to egg on the crowd, then open only 1 or 2 doors to funnel everyone in.
Donna Lemig Badach Recall vividly. The last concert to have "general admission" for all seats.

2nd Dec 1978, Neil Diamond and Barbra Streisand's ‘You Don't Bring Me Flowers’ was at No.1 on the US singles chart. A radio station engineer had spliced together Neil's version with Barbra's version and got such good response, the station added it to their playlist....

Michael Doucette Wrong year. It was 12-2-1978.
Laura Cimino I cannot believe some of these comments... Okay... Ahem... Two ICONS singing one of THE most BEAUTIFUL songs EVER written. Thank you.
Norman Hunt I only remember how much my Mom loved Neil Diamond. She said, that Grammy performance was like watching a love story.
Cyd Brooklyn Savannah Two Brooklyn icons, the song is a tad syrupy for my taste but, a hit none the less.
Judith Toti Burgers I do know that 40 yrs ago this month Evergreen was popular..because my daughter will be 40 on Tuesday...
Andy Barton The man wrote almost everything! I'm sure he was secretly also Dr Seuss, John Lennon and Jackie Collins...
Craig Gottschall Neil is a tool. Hotel staff is not allowed to look him in the eye wherever he stays.
Cath Harrison Had it as an LP record, saved it to tape when player was on blink 20+ years ago, found it last week, and played it.
Mark R Lathom Thanks. I was in high school when this was released but could not remember if '78 or '79.
Glyn Digby Regardless of other comments, this is a lovely song.....
Jennifer Bartram-Schmitt I had no idea that's how the duet came to be!
Ericka Libra Navarro My Fellow Brooklynite's Love!!! This Song!

2nd Dec 1976, The first day of the photo shoot for the forthcoming Pink Floyd Animals album cover took place at Battersea Power Station in London, England with a giant inflatable pig lashed between two of the structure's tall towers. A trained marksman was hired...

Naoto Iwawaki This album was released before WALL and after Dark Side of the Moon. My highschool glorious days in 70s
Paul Klinger Animals is my favorite Pink Floyd album. I like mostly all of them. Too bad I was too young to go to see this concert. I saw them in concert in 1987 & 1994. What a great concerts they were.
Pat Fornies I remember going to London for the first time and seeing this landmark. I didn't realize it was real and that close to London. I recently listened to it for the first time (I know...) and I like it a lot.
Rose Marie Saw Waters at Desert Trip in California this past October. Put on a great concert. He had the giant pig floating there with Trump's face on it. He definitely isn't a fan lol.
Stephen Kilpatrick Love pink floyd. Didn't hear them until I was about 14. Within a year I had every album up to that point
Anna Alexiou Went to that concert, such a story behind it! Going to see Roger Waters next year. Hubby and I wouldn't miss that for the world!
Martin Walsh Amazing guitar work by Gilmour on this album. It's a great album but a bit heavy for me and I have to be in the right mood to listen to it. DSOTM and Wall are not quite as heavy handed as I find this album to be. It is a great album.
Randy Martin My favorite Pink Floyd album! Was lucky enough to see this tour! The best live show I've ever seen!
Brian Hicks I saw them for the second time when they toured that album. Montreal Olympic Stadium. Awesome show
Ziggy Nixon IMHO, one of the 3 or 4 greatest albums produced ever.
Steve Grace Now Apple's UK headquarters, seems appropriate. Welcome to The Machine.
Werner Wingen Every time I take train from Gatwick to Victoria (not often enough these days!) I go by battersea and imagine the pig
Jeff Wayne We shot the pig down with bottle rockets in Cleveland, and they stopped the show and bitched at us hahahabha
Geoffrey Bayman The farmers cows were frightened - Oh how frightfully British ! Great album, great band. .
Clayton Heintz Animals is one my very favorites, I took a few trips back in thr 70s with that album, by my side.
Kris Boettigheimer Loved how Children of Men referenced this album cover. Greatest Easter Egg ever.
Rich Keslar Great Pink Floyd album.
JACK ROCKS LIVE Live on JACK ROCKS LIVE. The best Live music online radio. Classic Pop-Rock-Blues Live music.
Patti McMichael Love this album but it makes my dogs go nuts 🙂
John Krause Favorite Pink Floyd album!
Mark McGovern The best Pink Floyd album for sure!!!
Mark Thomas Harmlessly passing your time in the grassland away.
Jimmy Sullivan A fantastic album.
Roger Barry-Earnshaw as it is now with spiderpig

Happy birthday to John Densmore, born on 1st Dec 1944, drums, The Doors, who had the 1967 US No.1 & UK No.49 single 'Light My Fire' & 1971 single 'Riders On The Storm'. Densmore allowed 'Riders on the Storm' to be used to sell Pirelli...

Ted Root Actually Robby wrote their biggest hit, Light My Fire.
Ted Root Jim also insisted all music published by the band be credited to The Doors so earnings would be equal four ways.

Juan Lacal Gonzalez When I heard " All along the watchtower " on a T.V. as publicity of a motorcar I was sick...
