July 21st

1969 The Beatles started recording ‘Come Together’ at Abbey Road studios in London. The John Lennon track became the opening song on The Beatles Abbey Road album, and would later be paired with ‘Something’ and released as a double A-sided single.   

1973Jim Croce started a two week run at No.1 on the singles chart with ‘Bad, Bad Leroy Brown’. Three months later, Croce would be killed in the crash of a chartered Beechcraft E18S upon takeoff from Natchitoches, Louisiana. Croce had finished a concert just a few hours before the crash and was headed to his next show in Texas.

1990 Roger Waters’ production of ‘The Wall’ took place at the Berlin Wall where more than 350,000 people attended the live broadcast. Van Morrison, Bryan Adams and Cyndi Lauper were a few of the guest artists which performed parts of the show.

2008The Police played at the Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, Colorado. It was the first of two nights during the final leg of their 152-date reunion tour. The tour became the third highest grossing tour of all time, grossing over $340 million.
