The_4_Seasons_(1966)On September 15, 1962, the Four Seasons scored their first #1 hit when “Sherry” reached the top of both the Billboard Hot 100 and the Cashbox Best Sellers list. The song was originally titled “Terry,” but after considering other names, including “Jackie,” (named for Jackie Kennedy) the quartet changed the lyrics to “Sherry;” after Cheri Spector, the daughter of one of Bob Crewe’s best friends. Over their career the Four Seasons would have 3 more #1 hits: “Rag Doll,” “Walk Like a Man” and “Big Girls Don’t Cry.”

Huey_Lewis_&_the_News_-_SportsOn September 15, 1983, Huey Lewis and the News released the album ‘Sports.’ The album spawned four top 10 hits on the Billboard Hot 100: “Heart and Soul,” “I Want a New Drug,” “The Heart of Rock & Roll” and “If This Is It.” The LP reached the top spot on the Billboard 200 on June 30, 1984, and has been certified 7× Platinum by the RIAA.

220px-SurferGirlCoverOn September 16, 1963, the Beach Boys album ‘Surfer Girl’ was released. The LP reached #7 in the US during a chart stay of 56 weeks.

doorsOn September 17, 1967, the Doors were banned from the Ed Sullivan Show after Jim Morrison broke his agreement with the show’s producers.

The Doors also performed their new single “People Are Strange.”

 

 

 

220px-Roger_Daltrey_-left_and_Keith_Moon-right_1967On September 17, 1967, the Who appeared on the Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour. An incident occurred with flash explosions that damaged Pete Townsend’s ears. Drummer Kieth Moon bribed a stage hand to put explosives in his drum kit, loading it with ten times the expected dose. The resulting detonation threw Moon off his drum riser while his arm was cut by flying cymbal shrapnel. Townshend’s hair was fried and his left ear left ringing, while a camera and studio monitor were destroyed by a blast.

 

 

 

220px-GnR--UseYourIllusion1On September 17, 1991, over 4 million copies of Guns N’ Roses album, ‘Use Your Illusion I’ and ‘Use Your Illusion II’ were simultaneously released for retail sale. The cover art of both ‘Use Your Illusion’ albums is a detail of Raphael’s painting The School of Athens.

Hendrix left the message “I need help bad man,” on his managers answer phone earlier that night. Hendrix is widely regarded as one of the most influential electric guitarists in the history of popular music,and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame describes him as “arguably the greatest instrumentalist in the history of rock music.”

 

 

 

 

 

220px-Lick_it_up_coverOn September 18, 1983, the album ‘Lick It Up’ was released by KISS. On the day of its release, the band members appeared on MTV without their trademark makeup.

The album took only about 36 hours of studio time to complete at a cost of around £1,782. According to guitarist Jimmy Page, “The first album is a live album, it really is, and it’s done intentionally in that way. It’s got overdubs on it, but the original tracks are live.”

 

 

 
220px-DCalbumOn September 20, 1976, AC/DC released their third studio album ‘Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap.’ All songs were written by Angus Young, Malcolm Young and Bon Scott. The album has been certified 6x Platinum in the US
