On Saturday, November 9, 1968 Led Zeppelin made their 'official' debut on a London stage. The band had only been up and running for a couple of months, playing a smattering of gigs throughout Denmark and Sweden before finally hitting the U.K.
Queen's final album of the '70s was the musically eclectic but spartanly named ‘Jazz.’ And while it would predictably add to the band’s winning streak by spinning off several hit singles and topping charts around the world, it remains one of the most distinct records in the band's discography.
What Deep Purple fans saw on Nov. 9, 1993 at the NEC Arena in Birmingham, England, wasn't anything like a promised 25th anniversary celebration of the band. It was, instead, one of the final nights with founding member Ritchie Blackmore.
The rock world got a pretty good taste of Pete Townshend's songwriting ambitions in 1969 with the Who's 'Tommy,' one of the more fully realized concept albums of the era. But as it turned out, Townshend was just getting warmed up.
When the Police's debut album came out on Nov. 2, 1978, it sounded like little else on the music landscape at the time. The band was lumped in with punk and burgeoning New Wave groups at the time, but it played a mix of reggae and rock-inspired pop with all the time-shifting complexities found in prog and jazz.
The season of the witch is upon us. Time to brush up on your history—these evil green-skinned sorcerers aren't necessarily what you think. For example, they aren't evil, green-skinned or sorcerers. (Well, maybe some are, but not usually.)
Selling millions of records has helped more than a few artists mellow out, but watching their debut album climb the charts only made Pearl Jam angrier. They took out their aggression on the follow-up, 1993's 'Vs.'
