In 1966, Cream drummer Ginger Baker collapsed during a gig at Sussex University, England after playing a 20 minute drum solo. He later recovered in a local hospital. He was no John Bonham !!
In 1987, The three members from ZZ Top made advance bookings for seats on the first passenger flight to the Moon. They are still waiting for confirmation of the trip !! Might have better luck going downtown looking for some Tush ;-)
In 1988, Pink Floyd's ‘Dark Side Of The Moon’ finally left Billboard's Hot 200 Album Chart after a record breaking 741 weeks !! An amazing accompishment that won't soon be duplicated !!
