7/21/1973 (44 years ago today) - You couldn't go anywhere without hearing it: Jim Croce starts two weeks at No. 1 on the singles chart with the almost-impossible-not-to-sing-along-with classic "Bad, Bad Leroy Brown". Quite sadly, just ten weeks later, Jim would perish in a tragic plane crash...

7/21/1987 (30 years ago today) - Has it really been three decades...?: Guns N' Roses release their debut album "Appetite For Destruction" -- It has since sold over 29 million copies worldwide, 18 mill of which are here in America, making it the best-selling debut of all time in the U.S. -- Though critics were ambivalent towards the record when it first came out, we all know better now and recognize it as, quite ferociously and simply, one of the greatest rock albums ever made; try and find a weak moment, it can't be done...

7/21/1990 (27 years ago today) - You can almost hear Ronald Reagan in the background...: To commemorate the fall of the Berlin wall eight months earlier, Roger Waters held an all-star concert performance of Pink Floyd's "The Wall" at the Potzdamer Platz in Berlin -- More than 350,000(!) attended the event, which was broadcast live throughout the world -- The Grade-A list of artists that helped out was impressive as well: Van Morrison, The Band, Bryan Adams, Joni Mitchell, The Scorpions, Cyndi Lauper, Sinead O'Connor, Paul Carrack, Marianne Faithfull, actors Albert Finney and Tim Curry, model/actress Jerry Hall, with The Hooters and The Chieftains opening the show!
