Today in music history:
There were several significant events on this day between the years 1940 and 2001.
On this day in 1940 Clarence Satchell, future musician for The Ohio Players, is born in the US.
On this day in 1964 Ringo Starr famously tells the other Beatles after a long day of filming their first movie, that it's been "a hard day's night." (John Lennon turns the phrase into a song and the movie title is changed from Beatlemania! to A Hard Day's Night.)
Lynyrd Skynyrd and The Stranglers
On this day in 1977 Lynyrd Skynyrd is honored before the Atlanta Braves home opener in a ceremony to honor the band for their live album One More From The Road, which was recorded at the Fox Theatre in Atlanta. (The platter goes gold that same day.)
Also on this day The Stranglers' debut full length LP, Rattus Norvegicus, is released. (It spawns one of punk's all-time classics "Peaches" (and to this day remains a favorite in your rockin’ writer’s record collection).
