Making an example of The Stones... -- Jimbo on stage, full of booze... -- Props for a Brit blues dude who played a mean guitar...

4/10/1965 (53 years ago today) - Over in the town of Wrexham in North Wales, a British grammar school notifies parents that they are to keep their kids in pre-approved school uniforms and "not to send them to school in 'corduroy trousers', like the ones worn by The Rolling Stones!" Lord knows what that could lead to...

4/10/1970 (48 years ago today) - The Doors play two sold-out shows (7 and 10 pm) at the Boston Arena, capacity 6,300 -- Well, naturally Jim had been drinking all day, so by the time of the second show (which, by the way, never actually got underway until after midnight) ya gotta figure something was bound to happen -- The venue enforces the 2:00 am curfew by cutting off power to the band, and Jim tries to convince the audience to stage a sit-in by announcing "The a**holes are gonna win if we don't do something!". Keyboardist Ray Manzarek explains to The Lizard King if the group doesn't follow the rules, they'll be banned from other venues -- Turns out the manager of The Salt Palace, where The Doors are supposed to play the following evening, is actually in the audience in Boston, and quickly/subsequently cancels their show for the next night. The historic, shambling, weird and somewhat cool sets are recorded for future use and are currently available on The Doors web site. Good old days indeed...

4/10/1950 - Born on this date, singer and slide-guitar-master "Lonesome" Dave Peverett, a really underrated classic rock talent for sure -- Dave started out in 1968 as rhythm guitarist for London based blues legends Savoy Brown {again with the underrated..!!}, but his prowess and musical chops were heads above the other band members and in no time at all, he became the de-facto band leader -- After five Savoy Brown albums, Dave left to form Foghat in 1971 and, with some studio assistance from Todd Rundgren and Dave Edmunds, the band quickly became arena-rock staples with rather impressive album sales to boot: their self-titled debut (featuring "I Just Want To Make Love To You", still played on the radio in regular rotation today), "Rock & Roll Outlaws", "Fool For The City", "Foghat Live!" and "Stone Blue" are all rippin' good stuff! Dave passed away from cancer on February 7, 2000; in tribute, why not, for this upcoming weekend, go ahead and turn up the volume on some old Foghat vinyl -- They may not have been critics darlings, but they were better than you remember...
