Tommy’s Coffee Break Calendar for June 27th

Woman listening

Today, you have an invention; some notorious live dates; and the passing of a true British legend!

6/27/1885 – (129 years ago today) Chichester Bell and Charles Tainter apply for a patent on their invention the gramophone. Eventually, Chuck Berry makes it worth while.

6/27/1970 – (44 years ago today) The 3-day Bath Festival of Blues and Progressive Music gets underway in Bath, England. The line-up included headliners Led Zeppelin, along with Santana, Hot Tuna, The Byrds, Dr. John, Frank Zappa & The Mothers Of Invention, Canned Heat, John Mayall, Steppenwolf, It’s a Beautiful Day and several more acts including Pink Floyd who premiere their new suite “Atom Heart Mother” (which at the time was introduced as “Amazing Pudding”).

6/27/1970 – (44 years ago today) At Cornwall City Hall in England, Freddie Mercury makes his live concert performance debut with the band called Smile, who also happen to feature guitarist Brian May and drummer Roger Taylor. You pretty much know where it goes from here…

6/27/2002 – (12 years ago today) One day before The Who‘s first show of their 2002 U.S. tour, bassist John Entwistle died aged 57 in his room at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. Entwistle had gone to bed the night before with a stripper who awoke at 10 am to find him cold and unresponsive. A medical examination determines that John’s death was due to a heart attack induced by an undetermined amount of cocaine. Rock star to the end.
