ON This Day…. Oct 24

Posted: October 24, 2014 in Uncategorized

You have to wonder if the irony was lost on the Iranian Government when on this day in 2004… Queen became the first rock act to receive an official seal of approval in Iran. Western music was still strictly censored in the Islamic republic, where homosexuality is considered a crime, but an album of Queen’s greatest hits was released this week in Iran. Freddie Mercury, was proud of his Iranian ancestry, and illegal bootleg albums and singles had made Queen one of the most popular bands in Iran.

Born on this day…

1936 … Bill Wyman, yes folks, long time bass player with the Rolling Stones is 78 today, Happy birthday Bill

1986, Born on this day, Canadian rapper, songwriter, and actor Aubrey Drake Graham who records under the mononym Drake. Scored US No.1 albums with ‘ Thank Me Later’, (2010), ‘Take Care’, (2011), and ‘Nothing Was the Same’, (2013).

This means Drake was not yet 6 years old when Bill Wyman quit the Stones in 1993 after 30 years.
