THIS WEEK IN ROCK

November 3, 2019

Elvis tops the charts, George Michael takes on the American establishment, AC/DC get a statue and lots lots more – it’s This Week In Rock.

#OnThisDay October 28, 2008
A statue in honour of AC/DC frontman Bon Scott is unveiled at the Fishing Boat Harbour in Fremantle, Western Australia. Although he was born in Scotland, his family moved Down Under when he was small boy.

#OnThisDay October 29, 1983
Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton dominate the US singles charts when ‘Islands In The Stream’ goes to No. 1. Peaking at No. 7 in the UK, it takes pole position in Australia, Austria and Canada. Now stop what you’re doing and luxuriate in its magnificence.

#OnThisDay October 30, 1939
Many happy returns to the incomparable Grace Slick. As the singer of both Jefferson Airplane and Starship, Grace has sung some of the most iconic songs ever. As evidenced by ‘White Rabbit’, they sound as fresh and vital as ever.

#OnThisDay October 31, 1998
George Michael enters the UK singles chart at No. 2 with ‘Outside’, the lead single from his greatest hits album, ‘Ladies And Gentlemen: The Best Of George Michael’. Peaking at the position in the UK, it tops the charts in Greece, Hungary and Spain.

#OnThisDay November 1, 1969
It’s fifty years to the day that Elvis Presley topped the US charts for the 18th time with the magnificent ‘Suspicious Minds’. It would peak at No. 2 in the UK.

#OnThisDay November 2, 1969
Does bubblegum pop get any sweeter than this? The Archies are at No. 1 in the UK charts with ‘Sugar Sugar’. Remaining there for a total of eight weeks, it becomes the longest running One Hit Wonder to top the UK charts.

#OnThisDay November 3, 1980
Do birthdays get any better than this? Adam And The Ants release their second album, ‘Kings Of The Wild Frontier’, on frontman Adam Ant’s 26th birthday. Hugely successful, the album goes on to become the biggest selling album of 1981 and also wins Best Album at the 1982 Brit Awards.
