2017 and 2013
I didn’t have any posts during this period 4 years ago and 8 years ago.
So here is a brief history.
2008 (13 Years Ago)
Gene Simmons got fired by Donald Trump on The Celebrity Apprentice.
I don’t know why, but I saw this as funny.
2001 (20 Years Ago)
Jason Newsted asked his Metallica band mates to take a year off to work on side projects.
They said no and Newsted left.
Mike Portnoy tried the same with the Dream Theater guys in 2011 and the same result happened, with Portnoy leaving.
1991 (30 Years Ago)
AC/DC had to complete a show based on the recommendation of a Fire Marshall even after three fans got killed when they were crushed by the crowd at a show in Salt Lake City, Utah
1989 (32 Years Ago)
The embryo of the massive Black album begins, as Metallica drops an almost 8 minute music video, for “One”. This got em into the public eyes and minds.
1982 (39 Years Ago)
Ozzy becomes even more famous because he bit the head of a bat. Plus he gets rushed to hospital for rabies shots.
1974 (47 Years Ago)
One of my favorite bands is formed, by taking two bits of Free and a bit of Mott The Hoople and a bit of King Crimson to form Bad Company.
