Bruce Springsteen – Photo by Jeff Fusco

September 28th

1968Bruce Springsteen and local folk rock group, The Founders, appeared at the Off Broad Street Coffee House in Red Bank. The Coffee house was operated by a board of directors which included a municipal judge, a YMCA executive, and a representative of young music fans. Their mission was to have “a place where young adults could meet people, hear their kind of music, and to discuss without inhibitions deep questions of their time.”

1974 Bad Company hits No.1 on the album charts with their self-titled debut album.  Since then the album has sold in excess of five million copies and has become the 46th best selling album of the 70s. They would produce five more albums together before disbanding in 1983.

1980The Police are at No.1 in the UK with their single ‘Don’t Stand So Close To Me’. The best it would do in the US is a spot in the Billboard Top 10. It would later be revealed to be the best selling single of the year in 1980.

2002Tina Turner’s hometown Nutbush near Memphis, and made famous in her song ‘Nutbush City Limits,’ named a stretch of highway after the star. The stretch of State Highway 19 was named ‘Tina Turner Highway.’ Turner lived in Nutbush, a small town about 50 miles northeast of Memphis, until she was about 17.
