Controversies, Movies, and Deaths!
On this jam-packed episode of Follow the Sound, we discuss more music history. Join us as we talk about Janis Joplin‘s 9 week run at number 1 on the U.S. charts in 1971. The run itself was impressive considering that Janis Joplin had died five months earlier. But her last solo studio album stands as a testament to the greatness of the Texas singer. Also, in 1977 Ray Charles was attacked on stage at a charity concert. The attacker tried to strangle him with a microphone cord. Greg decides that February 29th should also be included in the show and he gives us the very depressing fact that Davey Jones died on February 29th a few years ago. In 1964 the Beatles started filming their brilliant musical/comedy ‘A Hard Days Night‘. We then close out this half of the show with the Foo Fighters live debut and some more celebrity deaths.
