She Was Just 17...

On this day in rock history, in 1999, Paul McCartney, David Gilmour (Pink Floyd) and Ian Paice (Deep Purple) perform at The Beatles old stomping grounds, Liverpool’s Cavern Club. The concert is broadcast on the Internet. End of an era, and the millennium, for sure – notice how everyone has that Beatle hop head bobbin’ thing goin’ on. Thanks to for the info, and keep on rockin’

Keeps Me Happy...

On this day in rock history, in 1965, an electrical short knocks out Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards during a Sacramento concert. Richards takes about ten minutes to get back up to speed. He finishes the show. These days it might take him an hour or so, but Richards rolls on. Here’s some recent footage of the Stones’ show at the O2 arena in London. Rock on, Keef! Thanks to for the info, and keep on rockin’!
