5/21/1966 – (48 years ago today) Performing at their own high school for the very first time, The Castiles play a dance at Freehold Regional High School in New Jersey. All five members of the band were Juniors attending the school. The lead vocalist of the group was a student by the name of Bruce Springsteen. Here’s what might be the first known video of Bruce live at a New York City night club just six years later:

 

5/21/1967 – (47 years ago today) Jimi Hendrix signs a deal with the record label that was started by Frank Sinatra: Reprise Records is in charge of releasing the first three classic Jimi Hendrix Experience albums “Are You Experienced?”, “Axis: Bold As Love”, and “Electric Ladyland”. We’re pretty sure no other label (or act) had such an impact on rock with their first 3 consecutive albums, all of which were released in under two years! This is The Experience absolutely live on German television, 1967:

 

5/21/1970 – (44 years ago today) Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young released the protest single “Ohio”, composed by Neil Young in reaction to the Kent State shootings just a couple weeks earlier, when unarmed college students were shot by the Ohio National Guard who fired 67 rounds in 13 seconds, killing four students and wounding nine others, one of whom suffered permanent paralysis.
