This Week In Music History (February 24 – March 2)

Bruce Springsteen

Bruce Springsteen

My latest “This Week In Music History” feature went out again this week over at the Spinner.

This week we learned how long it took Bruce Springsteen to get his just rewards, revisited Jim Morrison getting arrested onstage and Ray Charles getting strangled onstage (seriously, he didn’t see it coming).

This Week In Music History: December 9 – 15

The Doors

The Doors

My “This Week In Music History” feature went out again this week over at the Spinner.

This was one of the weirdest columns I’d done in awhile. There was Jim Morrison of The Doors getting arrested on stage, George Harrison getting stabbed over 40 times by a crazy person, and James Brown in an interstate car chase.

This Week In Music History: September 16 – 22 — The Crime Edition

Jim Morrison & Willie Nelson

Jim Morrison & Willie Nelson

My “This Week In Music History” feature went out again this week over at the Spinner.

For this edition I focused strictly on past crimes musicians were involved in and there were some truly rich ones. Jim Morrison of The Doors redefined the term “lizard king” and Willie Nelson got busted.

This Week in Music History: July 1 – 7

Rolling Stones' Brian Jones and The Doors' Jim Morrison

Rolling Stones’ Brian Jones and The Doors’ Jim Morrison

My “This Week In Music History” feature went out again this week over at the Spinner.

This one was kind of a bummer because this was the week Brian Jones of The Rolling Stones died as well as Jim Morrison of The Doors. It was also the week that the Sony Walkman debuted, but whatever.
