On many levels — creative, personal, and business-related — 1979 would go down as a banner year in the long and storied career of Frank Zappa. But perhaps nothing else accomplished during those significant 365 days left as large and lasting an impact as the double album cheekily named ‘Sheik Yerbouti,’ which arrived in stores on March 3.
Five years have now come and gone since the release of 'No Line on the Horizon,' U2's 12th and most recent studio album. When it hit stores on March 3, 2009, four years and three months had passed since the Irish rockers had issued their previous record, 'How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb,' marking the longest period between studio releases for the band at the time.
Today we celebrate the March 2, 1984 release of one of history’s most acclaimed documentaries … nay, “rockumentaries,” ‘This is Spinal Tap,’ which for the first time told the amazing story of one of England’s most powerful, exuberant, and punctual rock bands: Spinal Tap.
The Beatles had barely any time to reflect on their history-making first journey to American before moving on to their next project. On March 2, 1964, about a week after returning to England, they began shooting their first motion picture, ‘A Hard Day’s Night.’
It didn't exactly make them household names, but their 1973 debut album gave Aerosmith a solid foundation to build on, and when they reconvened in the studio to record the follow-up, they were faced with every young act's trickiest challenge: avoiding the sophomore jinx.
On March 1, 1974, a trio of young Canadians kicked off what would ultimately become one of rock's more distinguished recording careers with the release of their self-titled debut album. But before they could do their country proud, they'd have to go through Cleveland first.
