The Rolling Stones played at the infamous free concert festival in Altamont, California. Security was provided by the Hell's Angels motorcycle club. Angels stabbed one man to death, another man drowned, two other men were killed in hit-and-run accidents, and two babies were born.

Now that's a party.:devil:


The electric guitar played by Bob Dylan at the 1965 Newport Folk Festival was sold at auction in New York for a record $965,000. The Fender Stratocaster had been in the possession of a New Jersey family for 48 years after Dylan left it on a private plane.

Dolores O'Riordan (of The Cranberries)

Attachment 66111

September 6, 1971 - January 15, 2018

From Wiki:


O'Riordan died suddenly at the London Hilton on Park Lane hotel in Mayfair on 15 January 2018, at the age of 46, while in London for a recording session with Bad Wolves. The cause of death was not immediately made public, but an inquest held on 6 September ruled that she died as a result of accidental drowning in a bathtub due to sedation by alcohol intoxication. Empty bottles were found in O'Riordan's room (five miniature bottles and a champagne bottle) as well as some prescription drugs, but toxicology tests showed that her body contained only "therapeutic" amounts of these medications but 330 mg of alcohol per 100 ml of blood, a blood alcohol content of 0.33%.

1996 - Jamaican authorities opened fire on Jimmy Buffett's seaplane, Hemisphere Dancer, mistaking it for a drug trafficker's plane. U2 singer Bono was also on the plane; neither singer was injured in the incident. The incident inspired Buffett to write a song called 'Jamaica Mistaica'.
