Today in Rock December Twenty Second Featured Artist Cheap Trick Cheap Trick Cheap Trick hardly looked like a conventional ‘70s Rock band. There was world class guitarist Rick Nielsen (far right) with his sweater, bow tie and short hair covered by a baseball cap. He also had a tendency to play outrageous looking guitars. 1930's Big Brother And The Holding Company guitarist, James Gurley, is born in Detroit. 1939 1940's Leicester-born drummer Barry Jenkins has a birthday. He’s with the Nashville Teens (“Tobacco Road”) before landing in Eric Burdon & The Animals. 1944 Cheap Trick’s ace guitarist, Rick Nielsen, is born Rockford, Illinois. 1946 1950's According to Billboard magazine Elvis Presley wrapped up the year with a phenomenal 17 chart records. Nobody else has even half that. 1956 1960's The Tornadoes become the first British group to top the U.S. pop chart. They do it with their instrumental “Telstar.” The song takes its name from the recently launched communications satellite. 1962 ...
Just found out this morning that my brother-in-law Barry Jenkins is in the hospital, plus it is his birthday today. Decided we need to make him cookies and go see him. That started a huge cookie baking marathon, which my boys helped with. Decided to make three different types. My son, Sean, said, though, that I should not be sharing my recipes with people, else why would they purchase cookie dough from him for his school fund raiser. I just told him, I do not mind sharing recipes. Then all can make them, but is something to be said for the "touch of the master's hand." Less you think I am being pompous, it is one of my talents. I can make good cookies. To quote Will Sonnet (Walter Brennan in an old Western TV show), "No brag, just fact."
Happy December 22nd! Here's what happened on this day in history: 1962: The Tornadoes are at Number One with “Telstar.” 1975: Ike and Tina Turner lose $86,000 when their suitcase containing concert receipts is stolen. 1978: The Who announce that Kenney Jones will be joining the group on drums. 1990: The Aerosmith track “What It Takes” is named Top Rock Album Track at Billboard’s Year in Music chart awards. 1991: Greg Allman makes his acting debut as a drug baron in the movie Rush. Born: Barry Jenkins of the Animals, 1944; Robin and Maurice Gibb of the Bee Gees, 1949; Rick Nielson of Cheap Trick, 1946 Died: Ma Rainey, 1939; Joe Strummer of the Clash, 2002
