April 28th

1963Andrew Oldham catches a show of The Rollin’ Stones at London’s Crawdaddy Club. The next day he agrees to manage the band. Oldham saw potential in the group being positioned as “anti-Beatles”– a rougher group compared to the “cuddly moptop” image of the Beatles at that time.

1979 – New Jersey native Debbie Harry of Hawthorne tops the charts today. Her band Blondie scores their first US No.1 single with ‘Heart Of Glass’, also No.1 in the UK.

1983U2 plays an Ice Rink at the Rochester Institute of Technology in Rochester, New York. It was during the second leg of their ‘War’ North American tour. The War Tour took place in 1982 and 1983 in support of the group’s third album “War,” and was their first tour as full-time headlining acts.

1999 Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Having many hits through the years and solidifying a style now synonymous with classic rock, they become a part of Americana.
