This Day In Music History: April 29th


Willie Hugh Nelson was born on this day in 1933, making him 91 today. One of the most popular country figures of all time — especially in the "outlaw country" subgenre — he has released 100 studio albums (consisting of 74 solo studio albums and 26 collaborative studio albums), 14 live albums, 51 compilation albums, and 41 video albums. He has acted in more than 30 films, and he is widely known for his activism and political views — mainly supporting the use of biofuels and the legalization of marijuana. He has won many, many awards in his lifetime; he was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1993, and he received the Kennedy Center Honors in 1998. He's still going strong. He’s on the new Beyoncé album, and is set to play the Outlaw Music Festival at Somerset Amphitheater on Sept. 6.

1993 Mick Ronson died of cancer in England. The guitarist was David Bowie's right-hand man during the Ziggy Stardust days and had also worked with Ian Hunter, Bob Dylan and Morrissey.

1967 The 14-hour Technicolour Dream benefit party for The International Times was held at Alexandra Palace, Muswell Hill in London. Seeing the event mentioned on TV, John Lennon called his driver and went to the show. Coincidentally, Yoko Ono was one of the performers. More than thirty acts appeared included The Move, The Pretty Things, Soft Machine, Tomorrow, The Flies, The Creation, Arthur Brown, and The Graham Bond Organisation. All the bands played for free. Members of Pink Floyd drove all night from an gig in The Netherlands arriving at 3 AM, and taking the stage at dawn. The entire event was documented by BBC Television.

1976 After a gig in Memphis, Bruce Springsteen took a cab to Elvis Presley’s Graceland home and proceeded to climb over the wall. A guard took him to be another crank fan and apprehended him.

1970 Twiggs Lyndon, the road manager for the Allman Brothers Band, was arrested for murder after he stabbed a club manager during an argument over a contract. At the ensuing trial, Lyndon's lawyers argued that he had been temporarily insane at the time of the incident and that touring with the Allman Brothers would drive anyone insane. Incredibly, Lyndon was acquitted.

1983 Blues guitarist Muddy Waters, born McKinley Morganfield, died of a heart attack at the age of 68. He is considered "the father of modern Chicago Blues" and was a major inspiration for the British Blues explosion in the 1960s. He has been ranked #17 in Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 100 Greatest Artists of All Time
