ON THIS DATE in rock n roll history

January 15, 1967
The Rolling Stones take the stage on the Ed Sullivan show. And have to change their lyrics to make them less risqué.

MTV is host to Eric Clapton "Unplugged". The event leads to various other artist's going unplugged. I'll be honest, I never really got what all the whoopla to unplugged was all about.
But a major event in rock history none the less.

The White Album by The Beatles is played in a Los Angeles court room as evidence in the Tate/LaBianca murder trial. Charles Manson and Manson family members defendants. Listen at your own risk, but really no need to read anything into the lyrics .

On stage in Des Moines, Ozzy Osbourne bites the head off of a live bat. Has to take a series of rabies shots for the next month. I guess he really did hop that crazy train .

Crazy Train. What an iconic Ozzy tune. I sorta grew up with that one...sorta, in that it came out when I was teenager in my Sophomore year in high school.



That summer, after Sophomore year we played the Blizzard of Ozz album and Diary of a Madman back to back several times a day, every day.



IIRC, Toto IV, Scorpions Blackout and Van Halen's Diver Down all came out about same time Ozzy bit the head of that bat or sometime later that summer.



Anytime we weren't blasting Ozzy Osbourne or Black Sabbath from our boom box, we were jamming to the others.



We listened to Ozzy so much, my 78 year old parents now listen to Diary of a Madman and Blizzard of Ozz because it reminds them of when all of us kids lived at home. .....funny, because when I hear any old 50's rock n roll, like Elvis, Chuck Berry or Sha-na-nah it reminds me of them...sean

George Harrison marries modal Pattie Boyd (but no worries, he's still getting action on the side) . Pattie Boyd said to be the inspiration for Harrison's "Something". They get divorced a few years later and Boyd moves on to Harrison's long time friend Eric Clapton. Boyd also said to be Clapton's inspiration for "Layla" (see above post #2). Clapton and Boyd also get married and divorced.
The whole trading women back and forth between rock stars is a scenario played out more times than can be counted (and not always the marrying type) .
Any hard feelings between Clapton and Harrison, not at all. I mean it's not like he took his guitar.

Clapton and Harrison together a few years after Clapton's divorce from Boyd.

At a venue in Scotland the band Sweet is booed off stage, bottles flying and the whole 9 yards. Was the inspiration for their hit "Ball Room Blitz".

Allen Collins gets in a major car accident. Most unfortunate on many levels. Alcohol involved, something he should have learn his lesson on years earlier. His girl friend dies, he is paralyzed from the waist down. Never again to play guitar on stage. Later pleads no contest to vehicular manslaughter and dui.

Hey, now that's funny! Didn't realize Indiana was that retarded. That jogged my memory and sure enough, only 20 years later there was a big movement in Washington State to adopt Louie-Louie as their state song!

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Washington,_My_Home

Apparently, in order to keep the peace, the legislature eventually adopted a motion which kept "Washington, My Home" as the state song, designated "Louie-Louie" as the state rock anthem, and Woodie Guthrie's "Roll On, Columbia, Roll On" as the state folk song. Meanwhile, Oregon and Idaho were protesting because each state claimed "Louie-Louie" as their own.

Out of those 3 tunes, Louie-Louie is the only one I could hum along.
