Ronald Belford “Bon” Scott ~ b. July 9, 1946. The original.
Released on July 9, 1986, it’s Billy Joel’s 10th album and one of his most successful. A couple of his early influences — Ray Charles and Steve Winwood — make a music appearance on the album.
Bad Company’s Simon Kirke joins Led Zeppelin for a cameo during the concert in Munich, Germany on July 5, 1980. (See the 7:09 mark .. but the whole thing is worthy)
Kirke is the last guest musician to perform with Led Zeppelin. Bonzo dies two days later.
Lindsey releases his second solo album on July 3, 1984. It’s the epitome of a solo album in that he plays every damn instrument on the album.
July 2, 2005 ~ Thankfully, organizer Bob Geldof had David Gilmour’s phone number because, things had grown so distant between Roger Waters and David Gilmour, neither knew how to reach each other.
Live 8 was Geldof’s effort to draw attention to the poverty and AIDS crisis in developing nations and was held in (sorry) concert with that year’s G8 Summit — a gathering of international leaders.
David Gilmour once said that a Pink Floyd reunion would be like “sleeping with your ex-wife” but Waters, Geldof, Mason and Wright convinced him that “the cause is bigger than any of those bad feelings.” Richard Wright would pass away in 2008 so this was it — the last time Pink Floyd would perform together.
