Today In Music History: 08/24/17

We go way back to this day in 1956, when  Elvis Presley recorded “Love Me Tender.”

On this day in 1967, Who drummer Keith Moon, still drunk from celebrating his 21st birthday the night before, drove a Lincoln Continental into the pool of a Holiday Inn in Flint, Michigan and blew the toilet in his room to pieces. The Who have been banned from Holiday Inns ever since.

One of the truly great songs of all time had it’s birth on this day in 1975.  Queen began recording “Bohemian Rhapsody.” It took three weeks and the use of five studios to complete. To get the voices the exact way that Freddie Mercury wanted, they did 180 separate overdubs. 

Bruce Springsteen was pictured on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine on this day in 1978.

Speaking of Rolling Stones, they released the album “Tattoo You,” on this day in 1981

And it was on this day in 1999, that Christina Aguilera released her self-titled debut album, featuring the song “Genie In A Bottle,” which went #1 in 21 countries.
