Jim Stafford recorded “Spiders And Snakes,” on this day in 1973.
On this day in 1975, while vacationing on the isle of Rhodes, singer Robert Plant and his wife were badly injured when the rental car he was driving spun off the road and crashed, forcing the cancellation of Led Zeppelin’s upcoming U.S. tour. Plant broke an ankle and an elbow in the accident, and didn’t fully recover for two years.
It was on this day in 1980, that John Lennon and Yoko Ono began recording their album “Double Fantasy.”
