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.

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
