Hello my fellow Metal brethren and Rockaholics! Here are some historic happenings that occurred on September 30th, in the Metal and Hard Rock worlds, over the past many decades. Metal Be Thy Name! – Stone
01 - On this day in 1978, Aerosmith reaches #23 on the Billboard Hot 100 with their cover single of the Beatles classic: Come Together.
02 – On this day, in 1988, Van Halen kicked off the second leg of their tour in support of their multi-hit album OU812, at the Rupp Arena, in Lexington, KY.
03 – On this day in 1998, ZZ Top bassist Dusty Hill, Cheap Trick guitarist Rick Nielsen, Guns N’ Roses guitarist Slash, Ramones singer Joey Ramone, Megadeth singer/guitarist Dave Mustaine, Joe Walsh and Matthew Sweet all made cameo appearances on The Drew Carey Show episode: In Ramada Da Vida.
Born on this day in 1947, in the UK, was the pioneering Glam/Hard Rock legend: Marc Bolan. As a guitarist, singer and songwriter for T Rex, their 1972 single Bang A Gong, (Get It On) from the Electric Wizard album became a Top 10 hit in the US. Tragically, Marc Bolan passed away from injuries he sustained in a car accident, on September 16th, 1977.
LONG LIVE METAL & HARD ROCK.
REST IN PEACE, MARC BOLAN.
