5/09/1966 – 48 years ago today, The Doors auditioned for the position of “venue house band” at the Whisky A Go Go in West Hollywood, California. We know that’s a fact; everything else about that story is, indeed, quite “fuzzy”.

5/09/1974 – 40 years ago today, “Rolling Stone” music critic Jon Landau attended the first of two Bonnie Raitt shows at the Harvard Square Theatre in Cambridge, Mass. The opening act? Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band! His review? “I have seen rock and roll’s future and his name is Bruce Springsteen.” The rest, as they say…

5/09/1975 – 39 years ago today (by the by, this was the year that yours truly graduated high school), Kiss headlined a triple-bill at Ohio Northern University. Warming up the crowd was The James Gang and Rush! Are you ready for some stone-cold reality?  Advance tickets cost $5.00! Good God, y’all!
