On March 1, 1974, a trio of young Canadians kicked off what would ultimately become one of rock's more distinguished recording careers with the release of their self-titled debut album. But before they could do their country proud, they'd have to go through Cleveland first.
It didn't exactly make them household names, but their 1973 debut album gave Aerosmith a solid foundation to build on, and when they reconvened in the studio to record the follow-up, they were faced with every young act's trickiest challenge: avoiding the sophomore jinx.
For the last 45 years, ZZ Top has been the most dependable bands in rock and roll, sticking with the same three-man lineup while groups like the Rolling Stones, Black Sabbath and even AC/DC underwent a series of personnel changes. But did you know that in the brief time before the Little Ol’ Band from Texas settled on their current configuration, no less than three other people were in the group? Here are their stories.
Did he or didn't he? The late Doors frontman Jim Morrison was charged with exposing himself before a stunned audience in Florida on March 1, 1969, though he vehemently denied the allegation. Bandmate Robby Krieger still says that no photographic evidences exists to prove it.
Prior to recording their sixth studio LP, 1979's 'Lovedrive,' Scorpions had two main problems: Finding major success outside their native Germany and hanging onto a lead guitarist. Fortunately for the band, both issues would soon be solved.
On Feb. 20, 2003, during a Great White show at the Station nightclub in West Warwick, Rhode Island, 100 people lost their lives and over 200 were injured in a fire caused by the band's pyrotechnic display.
Released in February 1974, Humble Pie’s seventh studio album, ‘Thunderbox’ was pivotal for the seminal hard rock group led by legendary vocalist and guitarist Steve Marriott. But not in a good way, as it signaled their commercial fall from grace.
Most rock fans like to hear something a little different when their favorite artists release a new album. But when Deep Purple released their eighth studio LP, 'Burn,' on Feb. 15, 1974, things had changed for the band in some major ways.
The early '80s were a rough time for Aerosmith, with Joe Perry leaving the group in 1979 and Brad Whitford following two years later -- and only one new album, the uneven 'Rock in a Hard Place,' released between 1980 and '85. But on Feb. 14, 1984, the seeds for the band's comeback were planted backstage at Boston's Orpheum Theatre.
