This Day In Music History: November 7

elton1967   Pianist and singer Reginald Dwight (Elton John) and his future songwriting partner, lyricist Bernie Taupin, sign on to DJM publishing. Their parents have to witness the boys’ signatures, because they’re both under 21. It’s the start of a legendary partnership. Taupin  and John go on to collaborate on more than 30 albums.

Both John and Taupin had answered an ad for musicians and lyricists placed in the magazine “New Musical Express.” Although neither one of them passed the audition for Liberty Records, the label’s Artists and Repertoire agent recognized their potential, and introduced the boys.

For years, the two have an unusual songwriting style. Rather than creating songs together, Taupin would write the lyric and then pass it on to John, who would set it to music. Their — Read more

This Day In Music History: November 6

|#0|#1968  The Monkees‘ psychedelic movie “Head” opens in New York City. Marketed as the “most extraordinary adventure, western, comedy, love story, mystery, drama, musical, documentary satire ever made (And that’s putting it mildly),” the movie isn’t aimed at the band’s teen girl fans. It’s a dark, surreal, and absurdist contemplation of the nature of free will.

Some of the film’s imagery is disturbing, and the stream of consciousness storytelling style leaves most people cold. The band’s depiction of themselves as being helplessly trapped as their public personas strikes many as an affront to their fans, as does the shocking ending. The movie succeeds in destroying the band’s innocent public image, which is exactly what they want.

They probably didn’t want the awful reviews the film receives, or the sharp drop in the popularity of their music.

In later years, the movie would gain a cult following. Some fans view it as a fine — Read more

This Day In Music History: November 5

|#0|#1933   Mary Louise Cecila “Texas” Guinan, American singer, actress, emcee, and speakeasy owner, dies, and it’s the end of an era. She set the iconic look and style of the tough-girl saloon owner for generations to come.

Born in Waco, Texas in 1884, Miss Guinan would move to New York in 1904. Her fine voice and witty Wild West patter make her a hit in Vaudeville. In 1917, she stars in a silent movie called “The Wildcat,” where she becomes American film’s first movie cowgirl. She’s known to the public as the “Queen of the West.”

Texas Guinan is also a smart businesswoman. Like many others, she sees prohibition as an opportunity, and opens a speakeasy called the 300 Club in 1920. The place quickly becomes a hangout for the rich and famous—Pola Negri, Al Jolson, Clara Bow, Irving Berlin, and Rudolph Valentino, to name a few. George Gershwin plays there regularly. Texas greets her guests with “Hello, suckers!” and ends the risque stage acts with “Give the little ladies a great big hand.” She’s credited — Read more
