4th Dec 1993, Multi-instrumentalist, producer and composer, Frank Zappa died of prostate cancer. Zappa recorded many albums with The Mothers Of Invention as well a solo recordings including the 1969 album 'Hot Rats' and 1974 album 'Apostrophe'. Zappa recorded one of the first concept albums,...

Mel Tronebar A brilliant weirdo as most creative people are. Zappa hated drugs and organized religion. Did you know that he had high regard for The Monkees? Zappa wanted Micky Dolenz to join his group, The Mothers of Invention.
Don Krogol Frank Zappa was one of the best concerts I ever saw in my life. I am glad I had the distinct privilege to see him perform his musical magic live.
Darren Caughey Oh could have gone the rest of my life without seeing that lol
Eleanor Michaels If they do a movie Sacha Baron Cohen has to play Frank.
Denny Lama Love me some Frank. Saw the Mothers way back in the sixties with my wife (girlfriend at the time) who it turned out was not a fan. I still listen to him but by request not in the car with my wife. I don't understand. 👥✌
Danielle Valenza TV Dinners by the pool.... Im so gladd I finished school!
Peter Bailey And not a memorable one in the bunch. Get a haircut take a shave and put on a shirt and some PANTS FOR GODSAKE 😱
Izzy Burberry Superb musician master of his craft
David Horsfield Brilliant, but never easy . .
Cathy Robinson He had a talent that was above his time
Steve Smith Gotta love Frank.
Scott Harvey My birthday bro.
Martin Martin He was COSMIC DEBRIS
Stevie Jean Nicks I still have Freak Out and We're Only In It For The Money. Saw The Mothers at Albert Hall. Jimi Hendrix was the support act back in 67.
Greg Dingler Evening attire?
John Jarrell His son, Dwezil, plays in Nashville sometime soon at Marathon MarathonMusicWorks!
Cindy Zapata I hear the kids are fighting over his estate. Sad.
Susan Elaine Dear Lord! What a picture : )
John Patrick Patrickpainter I couldve went all day/week/year. Wo. Seeing that
Michael Golden R.I.P
Roivon Evans-Moore GROSS!!!!!!

4th Dec 1944, Born on this day, Dennis Wilson, drums, vocals, The Beach Boys, (1966 UK & US No.1 single 'Good Vibrations', plus over 25 other UK Top 40 singles). Wilson drowned while swimming from his boat moored in Marina Del Rey, California on 28th...

Francis Paola When I was in High School I had a Saturday morning radio show on WLAD in Danbury, Ct. The album had just arrived and I played several of the tunes. I knew Good Vibrations was a hit.
Ruth Ann Melton Barrick My first concert was the Beach Boys just after Good Vibrations was released.
Terrence Davis Happy 5-Oh Pet Sounds! Met Brian once said "Nice to see you" He said "Nice to see you too" as if we were old friends or I was a LEGEND too lol
Steven Watanabe Dennis Wilson was the only Beach Boys member who actually surfed.
Joseph Durand Still miss all those guys,only 39 yrs old what a shame

4th Dec 1971, The Montreux Casino in Switzerland burnt to the ground during a gig by Frank Zappa. The incident is immortalized by Deep Purple's 'Smoke On The Water'. In 1967 the Casino became the venue for the Montreux Jazz Festival, which was the brainchild...

Greg Dingler lol, most people don't even know why they like a piece of music, other than it's easy dancing, or they just like it. I think I never heard frank on the radio, I recently heard him in a grocery store (no kidding, the store was playing Plastic People),
Elle Wilky Everyone's taste in music is personal to them, just like their choices in food, films, and whom they fall in love with. Music uplifts the soul, whether it's good or bad music to others ears.
Tim Young Unique,, one of akind, did things his own way, bucked the record industrie, created his own record lable, " kill ugly radio" was a motto,....and " jazz isn,t dead,....it just smells funny "dared people to be creative, one of the first to run a guitar through a Leslie speaker.
Craig Kester I hear people say it is subjective and if one dares to point out what is good music and what is bad they are elitist etc .. Will I'll take a chance and say when music is based on making money and formula in mostly sucks . It's usually cliche and predictable.. Therefore most mainstream music today sucks . The masses are pounded with crap like Kid Rock , Justin Bieber , Lady GaGa , Kanye West Beyoncé etc .. It's like some mediocre Aristocracy.. There's a whole list of sexy bimbos that use soft porn to sell their lousy music . Meanwhile the stupid masses have never heard of Brian Eno , My Bloody Valentine , Sparklehorse, Elliott Smith , Joy Division etc And you are surprised Trump won ?? Dumb music helps dumb down the masses , which is our ruling classes goal . Dumb people are easier to control . Smart good music would wake people up and therefore they would be harder to control.. So keep sending us your sexy bimbos and stupid thugs !
Mark G. Gough Did he ever have a hit record? Certainly was never part of mainstream radio. Maybe that's why he looks so bitter?
Tyler Laurette Funny. When I think of 'good' music, I certainly don't think of Frank Zappa.
Max van Deurzen "Good music" is not a real thing because it's subjective. Thinking you own subjective definition of what good music is, is as arrogant as it is ignorant.
Tony Petersen False. Good art is in the eye of the beholder. He was always such a pompous ass.
Ray Peterson If memory serves, he didn't say "good music", he said "music".
Steve Akers Here comes that poodle dog big as a blimp with a Rhinestone Collar, snapping of trees................
Steve Akers Saw him 3 times. Carolina Hardcore Estaccccccccccccy. I ate a hotdog tastes real good then I watched a movie from Hollywood
Patrick Robert Kiebler Got alot of Franks music on my playlist. Sucks that I can't play it at work!
Don Dingwall If you had to say that, Frank, maybe you missed the point.
Wesley Gilbert There's a lot of memes these days were quotes are just made up. Don't believe every quote or blurb you read.
John William Hazel Love his music.. Every bit of it. But definitely not everyone's cup of tea!
Peter J Boyce He was a naturalist in his guitar playing his natual style was well admired by many
Flash Day Steve Vai started with Frank an he said he was a musical geniuis
Mitchell Bober Check with Suzy Creamcheese.
Jesse Donelson Coming from a guy who sang about yellow snow. LOL
Tom Bergeron Loved the guy but I think he was kind of bitter.
Miguel Alves And he died on this day, too...in 1993!
Lisa Moore Zoot Allures baby.
Steve Akers I heard The Grand Wazoo on Monday night Football
Marie Orizino I was 15 the fist time I seen him 💕

3rd Dec 2015, American musician and singer-songwriter Scott Weiland died aged 48. He was found in cardiac arrest on his tour bus in Bloomington, Minnesota, just before he was scheduled to go on stage with his band The Wildabouts. He was 48 years old. Weiland...

Steven Watanabe 😔 And after Scott's death, a lot of music stars have since passed away: Lemmy of Motörhead, David Bowie, Prince, Glenn Frey of The Eagles, Paul Kanter (Jefferson Airplane), Leon Russell, Leonard Cohen, Merle Haggard, Frank Sinatra, Jr., Dale Griffin (Mott The Hoople's drummer), etc.
Jim Sullivan This might be easy to say, but mental illness plays a role here. The R&R lifestyle is toxic and hellbound. Some cannot handle it. First thing is to get away. Run.....Actually the help is out there but its also inside of us. We`re all at least half of what the outcome is. We`re all engineered so frequently, that the good in us is either unrecognizable or ignored.
Jimmy Villarreal He was hooked and could not get the help, unfortunately his lifestyle would never give him the release he needed from his demons. RIP...
Mike Pete Jr. I grew up listening to Stone Temple Pilots in the 90s and early 2000s during my childhood and later Velvet Revolver. Can't believe he is gone.
Sean Smith I heard The Big Empty by STP and got angry. I really wish he could've gotten sober and stayed. What a great talent that a horrible drug took from us all.
Levi Schroeder Saw him with STP and velvet revolver. Amazing talent gone too soon.
Howard Kadison People over 40 need to not do drugs. Actually bad idea under 40 also.
Johnie Batten I love the song on Velvet Revolver I Fall to Pieces beautiful slash
Johanne Gravelle Tisha Gowan, for some reason stone temple pilots remind me of you. I remember listening to them in your camp.
Yolanda Brooks I cried all year so far especially over my Glenn Frey..I will never got over him.
Kendolina Soldano Unfortunately, the Coroner found that he died from a Heroine overdose.
Linda Ingvaldsen Such a freaking loss! His poor children and the people who loved his great talents.
Graham White Had tickets for the Glasgow leg of his tour. Sadly died before he got here. What a voice! Rip. X
Helen Kelly So many gone...it's bad enough when they are sick, or killed in an accident. To lose them to drugs is so much sadder...
Luis Magallanes Whenever I hear interstate love song, I always sing it loud and proud.
Linda Harper He tried his best but just couldnt stay clean. Temptation was everywhere i kinda felt sorry for him. May he forever rest in peace
Doug Bishop
Marg Khabbaz Loved STP. Scott was hypnotic to watch onstage.
Susan Sanders R.I.P Scott Weiland.
Charles Soto
Juan Gonçalves Rest in peace...while we will try to don't fall to pieces :(

3rd Dec 1979, A concert by The Who at The Riverfront Coliseum, Cincinnati, turned to disaster when 11 members of the audience were trampled to death after a stampede to claim unreserved seats, another 26 fans were injured. The concert was using 'festival seating' where...

Carol Carothers We lived in Cincinnati then in Sharonville and went to see Rod Stewart earlier that year and the outside of the Coliseum was so crowded and so unmanaged and so dangerous that my husband and I were pushed apart while people were rushing to the door. If it wasn't for some guy who saw I was going to hit one of those polls sticking up I don't think I would have made it. He lifted me over it. My opinion is bad management. I can t believe some people were blaming The Who the night of that concert. I'd been to dozens of concerts there before that and everyone I knew said the same thing. People are going to die here someday.
Steve Grace The next show after this one was Providence, which the Mayor canceled because he thought it was too dangerous, even though it was not a general admission show. As someone else said, they only opened one door and created the situation for people to get hurt. It was completely the venue management's fault but the band (and their fans) took the hit. They stopped having general admission concerts after that.
Rick Smith I was in school at the University of Cincinnati. I would have been there if I had extra money for a ticket. A friend across the hall in the form went. He said at one point the surge of people was so great that his feet were off the ground and ahead of his body!
Suzanne Devine Horrific day in the history of Rock. Not The Who's fault at all. I remember them being interviewed afterwards they could barely talk about it 😢
Dawn Weiser Jensen I remember this. one week before my eighth birthday. WKRP had a special episode about it.
Gwen Knieriem Yeah Then they came to Detroit and the fans became violent booing off the warm up band. The clash!
Steve Paul Duncan I remember this totally and the controversy it spurred. "The Kids" may be "Alright".... But they were hardly blameless.
Peter Green Don't blame who fans booing the sack of shite that was the clash
Kenneth R. McMillan I was a big fan of theirs until Pete Townshend paid his way out of those pedophilia charges
Paul Hunter Saw them two weeks later at the Bahstin Gahdin.
Steve Fewell I wish historians and reporters would stop saying "TRAMPLED TO DEATH" for this story. The fans who died were NOT lying on the ground getting stomped under foot!! They died standing up on their feet, suffocated by the surge of the crowd around them. The surge made it impossible for them to even reach the ground after death. Revise this history and say "CRUSHED TO DEATH".
Norman Hunt Remember.
Terry Stewart Seems like it was a couple years ago. I remember it well. Tragic
Glen Mills Half of the who...ugh
Jadwiga Flygen
Coby Pozin Saw them the next night in Buffalo!
Tony Smith I'd walk over you, to see the who..
Sheila Dass Yuck
Ernie Gartner And the band hasn't played in Cincinnati some 37 years later. Entwistle and Daltrey played solo shows there but the band known as "The Who" hasn't since and probably never will.
Ken Smith Most concerts at that venue had the same crush outside, a disaster waiting to happen. Cops would beat on the doors from inside to egg on the crowd, then open only 1 or 2 doors to funnel everyone in.
Lightnin Hopkins I was there! Decided to skip the "back up band" get there late. Concert started at 8 if memory serves. The "stampede" was around 6. Got there at 8:30, STILL giant funnel of people outside ONE set of doors. No sign of police, fireman, paramedics. Got into the back of the funnel, slowly went forward. It was a crush. Got inside, saw a bunch of people laying on the ground, 2 paramedics. Remarked to my friend " insnt that sad. Concert barely started and a dozen people have OD'd. Some of them look dead! (They were) 845, no police, no fireman. Went inside for concert, every seat filled, every aisle up the sides filled with people sitting on the steps. A mass of humanity on the arena floor, no seats. The Who are playing Climbed over people to go up steps, stood behind last row of seats. Got paranoid because no way to escape. Climbed back down, went toward the back of the arena. Found see outside, it's about 9pm. NOW there are police and fireman and paramedics outside. Those people were killed because of the GREED of the arena or concert management. From what I saw, no one called the authorities till a couple of hours AFTER it happened. And the arena had at LEAST 150% of the people it SHOULD HAVE. the concert was GROSSLY OVERSOLD, and ONE DOOR WAS OPEN to let people in. One man's opinion. Anybody else there have tat experience?
Donna Lemig Badach Recall vividly. The last concert to have "general admission" for all seats.
Barbie Garrison Saw Neil there in 2015. They have remedied the situation. I had no idea this happened. I lived in Oklahoma at that time & was a fan of The Who. What a tragedy. I don't know...where I saw Neil was outdoors. Is that a different venue?

2nd Dec 1978, Neil Diamond and Barbra Streisand's ‘You Don't Bring Me Flowers’ was at No.1 on the US singles chart. A radio station engineer had spliced together Neil's version with Barbra's version and got such good response, the station added it to their playlist....

Michael Doucette Wrong year. It was 12-2-1978.
Laura Cimino I cannot believe some of these comments... Okay... Ahem... Two ICONS singing one of THE most BEAUTIFUL songs EVER written. Thank you.
Colleen Moore Can honestly say this would be the only song i can listen to with Barbra singing on it. I know she's hugely popular with a lot of people, she's just one of those artists I can't listen to
Norman Hunt I only remember how much my Mom loved Neil Diamond. She said, that Grammy performance was like watching a love story.
Judith Toti Burgers I do know that 40 yrs ago this month Evergreen was popular..because my daughter will be 40 on Tuesday...
Cyd Brooklyn Savannah Two Brooklyn icons, the song is a tad syrupy for my taste but, a hit none the less.
Craig Gottschall Neil is a tool. Hotel staff is not allowed to look him in the eye wherever he stays.
Cath Harrison Had it as an LP record, saved it to tape when player was on blink 20+ years ago, found it last week, and played it.
Andy Barton The man wrote almost everything! I'm sure he was secretly also Dr Seuss, John Lennon and Jackie Collins...
Mark R Lathom Thanks. I was in high school when this was released but could not remember if '78 or '79.
Glyn Digby Regardless of other comments, this is a lovely song.....
Jennifer Bartram-Schmitt I had no idea that's how the duet came to be!
Ericka Libra Navarro My Fellow Brooklynite's Love!!! This Song!
