THIS WEEK IN ROCK

September 8, 2019

Record breaking releases, turbo-charged chart positions and hugely expensive birthday presents – it’s This Week In Rock…

#OnThisDay September 2, 1951
Many happy returns to ELO violinist Mik Kaminski. As well as being one of the band’s three string players, he also scored a UK No. 17 hit with ‘Clog Dance’ under the name Violinski, where he was joined by former ELO member Mike de Albuquerque on guitar.

#OnThisDay September 3, 1989
Having peaked at No. 2 in the UK singles chart, Alice Cooper’s ‘Poison’ is still a fixture in the Top 10. Little wonder, then, that the lead single from his 11th album, ‘Trash’, remains one of his best-selling single releases!

#OnThisDay September 4, 2008
Holy smoke! The first guitar burned onstage by Jimi Hendrix is sold at auction for a pocket-burning £280,000. The Fender Strat met its fiery demise at the Finsbury Park Astoria in London in 1967.

#OnThisDay September 5, 1956
He was always such a good boy to his mum: Elvis Presley treats his mother Gladys to a brand new pink Cadillac! The car has remained with the Presley estate and is on display at the King’s Graceland home.

#OnThisDay September 6, 2016
The incomparable Barbra Streisand maintains her record by notching up more US No 1 albums by a female recording artist than anyone else when Encore: Movie Partners Sing Broadway. The duets album of Broadway classics also tops the charts in the UK and Australia.

#OnThisDay September 7, 1975
David Essex begins his climb to the top of the UK charts when ‘Hold Me Close’ enters the UK single charts at No. 48. Written by Essex and produced by ‘War Of The Worlds’ creator Jeff Wayne, it becomes his second and final No.1, though more hits follow.

#OnThisDay September 8, 1975
AC/DC play the second of two consecutive nights at the Marquee in London as part of their ‘High Voltage’ tour of Europe. The band had already played two nights at the venue just weeks previously but high ticket demand ensured their speedy return.
