Rock and Roll March 25

1963 – This was the year that Johnny Cash released one of his biggest Pop hits – “Ring of Fire. What is interesting is that this song was written by his future wife June Carter and Merle Kilgore. It was originally recorded by Anita Carter, June Carter’s sister. Four years later Johnny Cash and June Carter got married.

1967 The Doors came out with the ever-popular song “Light My Fire” and released their debut album. The album stayed at the top of the charts for three weeks.

That same year The Turtles came out with their only number one hit “Happy Together”.

1968 – The ever-popular group The Monkees finished filming their 58th and final TV show and ended a two year run on TV. Of course, now new generations have discovered them and their episodes can be seen on YouTube.

1969 – was the start of their seven-day “bed-in” for John Lennon and Yoko Ono at the Hilton Hotel in Amsterdam in order to promote world peace. Oh, how we would need for them to repeat that today but alas it is not possible.

1977 Bob Seeger got his big break and got the recognition he deserved when he came out with his 7th album Night Moves which included three hits “Night Moves”, “Mainstreet” and “Rock and Roll Never Forgets”. The album went Platinum.
