It's a celebration day indeed! Led Zeppelin has been nominated to 2 Grammy awards - CELEBRATION DAY for Best Rock Album and "Kashmir" for BEST ROCK PERFORMANCE.
ABOUT CELEBRATION DAY
40 years ago, on this day in 1973, Deep Purple Mk3 (with David Coverdale and Glenn Hughes) played their first show in K.B. Hallen, Copenhagen. Here they are with their Mark 3 line-up the following year.
Yes, it's that time of year. Love it or hate it, there is no escaping holiday music. So let's do it right. Last year's 'The Egg Nog Has Been Spiked' mix series seems to have disappeared from the Rhinofy archives, so we are re-upping (and appending!) it here with an extra seven tracks. Look for part two next week, again with additional tracks. From the great William Bell to Roger Miller. Let. It. Snow.
On this day in 1978, Chic's "Le Freak" started its seven week run at #1 on the US singles chart. Here is the band, performing "Le Freak" in 1978.
Make your family laugh this holiday season! In celebration of Bill Cosby's first comedy special in 30 years, FAR FROM FINISHED, the legendary comedian's entire catalog is on sale for a limited time.
Celebrate Bill's legacy with his most iconic performances & stand-ups on Amazon now through Dec. 9th. Get Cosby's latest stand-up performance, FAR FROM FINISHED, on DVD.
They're so much more than "I'm Not In Love."
1. "Rubber Bullets"
Start here, I did.
The debut album was big in the U.K., it was all over the U.S. rock press, but you could neither buy nor hear it until...the album finally appeared. "Rubber Bullets" was the hit, and what a breath of fresh air it was back in '73, when art rock and singer-songwriters were in vogue and Brian Wilson was in his sandbox and we were still yearning for that sound.
The track didn't hit in the U.S., but it was a smash in the world of anybody who heard it.
