An English Battle?

Well The Weeknd is almost up, but let’s have some fun tonight with my Unscientific Poll.

Hey it’s Chris Miles and I hope you’ve had a great weekend. How has yours been so far? Tonight I got to celebrate my birthday a day early with family and friends. Always a good time!

On this day in music history.

1981 – The Texxas Jam is held at the Astrodome in Houston. The lineup includes headliner REO Speedwagon, and Heart, Foghat, Blue Oyster Cult and The Rockets.

In 1978 – Def Leppard make their live debut at Westfield School, Sheffield, England in front of about 150 students. They are paid 5 pounds (about $6) by a teacher.  They also have a Spinal Tap moment.  Guitarist Steve Clark “plugged in and walked to the front of the stage, looking brilliant in his tight jeans and long blond hair,” Elliott recalled. “All ready to go into the first song, ‘World Beyond the Sky,’ he did his windmill arm motion, just like Pete Townshend, for the big opening chord and nothing happened. No power. Everybody in the audience was laughing. After a few seconds, we started all over again.”
