    This Day In Rock History: November 19th


    1946 Drummer Joe Correro Jr. (of Paul Revere and the Raiders) is born in Greenwood, Mississippi.

    1960 Matt Sorum (drummer for Guns N' Roses) is born in Orange County, California.

    1973 Bob Dylan releases his 13th studio album, Dylan.

    1973 Emerson, Lake, & Palmer release their fourth studio album, Brain Salad Surgery, featuring the live showstopper "Karn Evil 9."

    1979 Loverboy plays their first ever concert, opening for Kiss at The Coliseum in Vancouver.

    1979 Frank Zappa's one and only rock opera, Joe's Garage, is released. The second half came out November 19th, the first half was released in the previous September. The opera mixes styles of blues, jazz, doo-wop, lounge, orchestral, rock, pop and reggae. While it draws controversy at the time for profane lyrics, it has since been hailed as a cultural milestone and landmark album. The work also looks forward to Zappa's later crusade against the PMRC with its themes of government censorship, and introduces a few memes into the Zappa lexicon, including "The Central Scrutinizer," "a little green rosetta," and of course, the term "roto-plooker."

    2003 Rock bassist Greg Ridley (of Humble Pie, Spooky Tooth) dies of pneumonia in Alicante, Spain, at age 56.

    2007 Kevin DuBrow (lead vocalist for Quiet Riot) dies of a presumed accidental cocaine overdose at age 52. He is found in his Las Vegas home six days later.
