UncUpdate On This Day Graphic

On this day in 1847, the doughnut was invented so that roadies could work lengthy rock tours.

On this day in 1968, The Jeff Beck Group debuted in New York City. Their lead singer, Rod Stewart, was so nervous he hid behind the speakers for the first few songs. No, there wasn't a young blonde back there with him, but we all know how he likes his doughnuts.

On this day in 1970, Led Zeppelin played their one and only gig in Iceland, which in turn inspired Robert Plant to write the lyrics to Jimmy Page's still in development "Immigrant Song."

On this day in 1973, Elton John's plaintive "Don't Let The Sun Go Down On Me" began its climb to #2 on the singles charts. Elton had personally enlisted Carl Wilson and Bruce Johnston of The Beach Boys as well as Toni Tennille to do the beautiful backing vocals.

On this day in 2008, George Carlin, the iconic, acerbic, GRAMMY-winning comedian/actor/author whose career spanned more than 50 years, died of heart failure in Santa Monica at the age of 71.

It was Napoleon Bonaparte who said: "He who knows how to flatter also knows how to slander."

It was Mark Twain who said: "The difference between the right word and the almost right word is the difference between lightning and a lightning bug."
