Welcome to another edition of Today in Boston ROCK, where I, Adam 12, spotlight Very Important Days In Rock History. September 21 is one.

  • 1947

    September 21, 1947: Eagles guitarist Don Felder is born in Gainesville, Florida. Much like Eddie Van Halen and Living Colour‘s Vernon Reid, Felder was self-taught. The Eagles recruited him to add slide guitar to “Good Day in Hell” and solo work to “Already Gone” for their On the Border album. They liked his licks so much they asked him to join the band in 1974. The fights started shortly thereafter.

  • 1972

    September 21, 1972: Liam Gallagher of Oasis is born. He and his brother Noel had a pretty decent showing in my 12 Inch Poll about the all-time greatest band feuds.

  • 1978

    September 21, 1978: Road to Ruin, the Ramones fourth album, is released. It’s the one with “I Wanna Be Sedated,” which has gone on to become one of the band’s best-known songs. Their cover of “Needles and Pins” is on the album, too.

  • 1990

    September 21, 1990: AC/DC releases The Razor’s Edge. Gun to my head, I’m picking this one as my all-time favorite AC/DC album. I was thirteen when it came out and I think it’s the first album of theirs I really took the time to sit down with. I wrote a bit about it for the 30th anniversary in 2020.

    September 21, 1993: Nirvana releases In Utero, their third and final full-length studio album. They played the Wallace Civic Center in Fitchburg that December when touring for the album. Were you there?
