Today In Music

In 1956, Carl Perkins was almost fatally injured in an automobile accident near Wilmington, Delaware, while on his way to New York City to appear on The Ed Sullivan Show. Perkins had to spend several months in the hospital. By the time he was well enough to resume his career, Elvis Presley had covered his hit “Blue Suede Shoes,” and Perkins never really rebounded.

In 1976, Presidential candidate Jimmy Carter told potential voters at the National Association of Record Merchandisers’ Scholarship Foundation Dinner that Bob Dylan, the Grateful Dead, Led Zeppelin and other bands had inspired him during his late nights as the Governor of Georgia. To prove he would never lie to them, he quoted lines from the Beatles’ “Yesterday” and Dylan’s “Blowin’ in the Wind.”

In 1980, Pink Floyd‘s “Another Brick In The Wall” was the #1 single in the U.S.
