The Who’s First U.S. Tour, Van Halen’s “Hide Your Sheep” Tour, And The Sad Story of Jim Gordon: This Day In Classic Rock [Videos]
The Who on the Smothers Brothers Show, John Lennon goes off on 3/4 of The Beatles manager Allen Klein, and Van Halen at the very peak of their rock powers in 1982!
Jimi Hendrix was in the Army’s famed 101st “Screaming Eagles” Airborne Division…but didn’t much like it. The Beatles ultra-rare LONG version of “Her Majesty”…Axl Rose and The Grateful Dead start riots, and the second Mrs. Jagger on Letterman…
They went on their first farewell tour in 1982, but they’ve played over 400 gigs and released a new album in the decades since, so it has indeed been a “long goodbye” for the Who. And now, on the eve of their 50th anniversary as a band, it looks like Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey are planning what really (really!) will be their last tour (but perhaps not their final performances).
The Dead, Janis, and The Band on a non-stop party on rails across The Great White North…Mick Jagger goes to court…and then to prison…and we lose perhaps the greatest rock and roll bass player of all time…
