Today In Music History: 04/28/17

Elvis Presley released “Viva Las Vegas.” on this day in 1964.

We go to 1967, when Muhammad Ali refused induction into the U.S. Army. And, as a result, was arrested and stripped of his boxing title. He sited religious grounds for his refusal. The case went all the way to The Supreme Court where Ali won a unanimous decision.

Chicago released their debut album, “The Chicago Transit Authority,” on this day in 1969. That’s the album that includes the songs “Beginnings” and “Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is?” to name a couple.

It was double former Beatles on this day in 1975. Ringo Starr appeared on the “Smothers Brothers Show,” singing the “No No Song.” Later that night, John Lennon was a guest on NBC’s “Tomorrow” hosted by Tom Snyder.

We’ve heard the song a thousand times and it was on this day in 1978 that it was recorded. “I Want You To Want Me” by Cheap Trick was recorded at Budokan Hall, for the live album called “Cheap Trick at Budokan.”

On this day in 1984 “Against All Odds” by Phil Collins was the #1 song.

On this day in 1988, singer/songwriter B.W. Stevenson, died from complications of heart valve surgery at age 38. I love his song “My Maria.”

Let’s jump to this day in 1990, when Axl Rose married model Erin Everly, daughter of Don Everly of the Everly Brothers. The marriage was annulled nine months later.
