never heard this story, but love that Patti Smith punched the Nudge for making a homophobic comment 45 years ago

Happy 75th Birthday to the LP, the invention that elevated 33 1/3 to The Pantheon of Famous Numbers That Are Not Integers.

never knew this was Jason's origin story

Then, at the age of 22, his moment arrived. A member of the Drive-By Truckers, a band that had returned to its home in the Shoals to play a breakthrough house concert for Spin magazine, failed to show up for the gig. As a result, Isbell got a rapid field promotion onto the stage. He joined the band for the show and then departed on tour with the band for the next six years.

Somehow in 2023 I just learned that Tony Visconti produced TRex's  albums

then (and performed on) the man who sold the world (this I knew)
Oddly though did NOT produce Ziggy and that's the most Bolan record Bowie did

Tony may have had a lot more to do with glam rock fuzz than I'd previously thought.

I guess this goes to show the power of a great pop/rock song...

I own no Elton John albums, never seen him in concert and yet I know far more of his hits then one would expect.  So only exposure would be 70s/80s radio, TV and probably movies.

It shows the power of a popular song when rock was king. They were in the air back then….

I don’t agree with that….popular music just had a different role in daily life back then….very unifying…now popular music is just not that popular…it’s audience is very fragmented…

Curiously, live music has never been more popular

Grocery stores, man. Elton John is a top-3 grocery store artist all-time. Arguably #2 behind just Mariah Carey.
