Knebworth 1976

August 21, 1976 ~ Lynyrd Skynyrd opens for the Rolling Stones and for many, they steal the damn show.

The Stones had only one rule … don’t go out on “the tongue.”  You can see they don’t want to go, but Ronnie literally drags Stevie Gaines and Ed King out there during “Free Bird.
Dig it.


Slow Train Coming 

Orpheus releases Slow Train Coming on August 20, 1979. Like many of his albums, it’s controversial among fans. Dylan lays his personal faith on the line which doesn’t sit well with many of his tight-ass fans. But the album also welcomes many new fans to the work of Orpheus. He wins a Grammy for best male vocal performance and the album gives him his first hit single in three years.
