UncUpdate On This Day Graphic

On this day in 1954, Bill Haley & the Comets broke into the Top 40 with "Shake, Rattle & Roll." Music would never be the same.

On this day in 1968, Cream's hard rocking "Wheels Of Fire" album hit #1.

On this day in 1971, Paul McCartney's second solo album, "Ram," hit #2 as The Moody Blues sixth album, "Every Good Boy Deserves Favour," entered the charts on its way to three weeks at #2.

On this day in 2005, Robert A. Moog, one of the most influential innovators in the history of Rock & Roll and the guy whose self-named synthesizers turned electric currents into sound, passed away at the age of 71 at his home in Asheville, North Carolina.
