Neat-o stuff for the same day in 1970...

Look closer: David Bowie, Feb. 1970. (Hulton Archive/Getty Images)

2/28/1970 (47 years ago today) - Led Zeppelin was (semi-) forced to play a show in Copenhagen under the name "The Nobs" after Eva von Zeppelin, a relative of the original airship designer Ferdinand von Zeppelin, threatened to sue if the family name was used in Denmark. She wasn't a fan, then...

2/28/1970 (47 years ago today) - It really holds up still as one of the greatest pieces of record production ever made: Simon & Garfunkel begin six weeks at No. 1 with the beyond-ultra-classic single "Bridge Over Troubled Water". A truly remarkable piece of work that leaves you wondering just how were they able to do what they did, a great example of how, sometimes, a song is alot more than "just a song"...

2/28/1970 (47 years ago today) - They were so new they hadn't even come up with a name yet(!), so when David Bowie's latest group performed at the Basildon Arts Experimental Music Lab in Essex, England, they were billed {rather drearily and at the last minute} as David Bowie's New Electric Band. Eh. Weird fact: Iron Butterfly was also on the bill.
