Happy Saturday night! It’s Chris Miles hanging out with you for the Saturday Night Dance Party! Shhhh don’t tell Danielle I’m calling it that. Lol
Here’s some interesting Rock history for you.
On this date in 2012 – Slash gets his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in front of the Hard Rock Cafe. Ex-bandmates Duff McKagan, Gilby Clark and Steven Adler are in attendance. Charlie Sheen is the master of ceremonies and quips, “It seems quite fitting that Slash is getting a star on the very street Axl Rose will one day be sleeping on.”
In 1989 – The Monkees receive their star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The star is located in front of the Vogue Theatre, where their movie Head (co-written by Jack Nicholson) premiered in 1968. The counter-culture movie destroyed their reputation at the time and was a total box office flop, but has since developed a cult following.
On this date in 1964 – The Beatles premiere their film A Hard Day’s Night in their hometown of Liverpool where over 200,000 fans (a quarter of the population) line the streets to welcome them. John Lennon later said, “We couldn’t say it, but we didn’t really like going back to Liverpool. Being local heroes made us nervous. When we did shows there, they were always full of people we knew. We felt embarrassed in our suits and being very clean. We were worried that friends might think we’d sold out – which we had, in a way.”
And now on to today’s poll.
