This Day In Music History

The Beatles – Photo by John Pratt

September 29th

1967The Beatles are mixing John Lennon’s ‘I Am The Walrus’ at Abbey Road Studios. Lennon had combined three unfinished songs together to form ‘I Am The Walrus’, and when he learned that a teacher at his childhood school was having students analyze Beatles’ lyrics, he wrote the most confusing lyrics he could.

1973Grand Funk Railroad is at No.1 on the singles chart with ‘We’re An American Band’, the group’s first of their two chart toppers. The lyrics are somewhat autobiographical, detailing their recent tours and performances. In the song, the band mentions traveling through Little Rock, as well as stopping to party with four groupies, and “sweet sweet Connie,” a reference to legendary groupie Connie Hamzy.

1989Bruce Springsteen is traveling on his motorcycle from L.A. and stops to jam with the house band at Matt’s Saloon in Prescott Arizona. Bruce plays a bunch of rock and roll classics, and ends up donating $100,000 to help with a bartender’s medical bills.

2004 Keith Moon’s drum kit, custom-made for The Who drummer in 1968, sells today for $215,000 in London to an American collector. This sets a world record for the most money spent on a set of drums at auction.
