On this day in 1968, Janis Joplin announced that she would be leaving Big Brother & the Holding Company in a month because she and the band "weren't growing together anymore." Ah, the Sixties!
On this day in 1974, John Lennon's "Whatever Gets You Thru The Night" (featuring Elton John on backing vocals) entered the singles charts on its way to #1. In fact, it was John's only #1 solo single during his lifetime, and — even more surprising — he was the last former Beatle to hit that mark.
On this day in 1996, as Rush's "Test For Echo" (their ninth consecutive Top 10 LP) hit #5, R.E.M.'s "New Adventures In Hi-Fi" — their last with original drummer Bill Berry — entered the album charts for a quick run to #2.
This Sunday night at 8pm on 100.3 The Sound of Los Angeles, OFF THE RECORD with Joe Benson will feature the music of The Rolling Stones as well as conversation with Keith Richards and Mick Jagger. Check out this preview!
