1967Boz Scaggs returns from Europe to join The Steve Miller Band. They had originally played together in their teenage years, but Scaggs had left to record a solo album in Europe. His stay with the Steve Miller Band was short lived, appearing on ‘Children of the Future’ and ‘Sailor’, but eventually choosing to go solo for good.

1977 Blondie, featuring New Jersey native and former Playboy bunny Debra Harry, signs their first major record contract with Chrysalis Records.

1980 Fleetwood Mac plays a show at the Hollywood Bowl to end an 18-month world tour promoting ‘Tusk’, stating on stage that “this is our last show for a long time.” They traveled extensively across the world, including the US, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, France, Belgium, Germany, the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom. It was on this world tour that the band recorded music for the ‘Fleetwood Mac Live’ album, which was released at the end of 1980.
