30 Years Ago: Marillion Release ‘Fugazi’

You could almost hear the unified, horrified screams of thousands of aging punk rockers, on March 12, 1984, as they watched Marillion -- the greatest new hope of progressive rock -- crash the U.K. Top 5 with their sophomore album, ‘Fugazi,’ and deal a symbolic deathblow to punk’s late-‘70s pretension of slaying the might prog dinosaur, once and for all.

The evening that drinking buddy Harry Nilsson introduced John Lennon to the brandy Alexander cocktail wouldn't end well. On March 12, 1974, the rock stars would ultimately be escorted out of LA's iconic Troubadour nightclub, ejected for relentlessly heckling the Smothers Brothers and, according to a member of the staff, assaulting a waitress.

50 Years Ago: Simon & Garfunkel Record ‘The Sounds of Silence’

Today their acclaim is universal but in 1964 Simon & Garfunkel’s debut LP ‘Wednesday Morning, 3 A.M.’ flopped. Subtitled “Exciting new sounds in the folk tradition,” the acoustic album only sold about 2,000 copies. A mix of Paul Simon originals, folk covers and traditional tunes, its highlight was a Simon composition recorded on March 10, 1964, ‘The Sounds of Silence.’

30 Years Ago: Golden Earring Releases ‘N.E.W.S.’

When veteran Dutch rockers Golden Earring unveiled their seventeenth studio album, ’N.E.W.S,’ in March 1984, they were still feeling the love shown for their latest Top 10 single, ‘Twilight Zone,’ released just two years prior. But remember that it took nearly a decade after 1973’s career-defining hit, ‘Radar Love,’ to once again breathe the rarefied air found near the top of the charts. On top of all that, the band was nearly twenty years removed from their very first record, way back in ’65.

20 Years Ago: Soundgarden Release ‘Superunknown’

By 1994, the Seattle-centric sound generally referred to as “grunge” had pretty much achieved worldwide dominance. But of the four bands credited with flying alternative nation’s flannel flag across the globe -- Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Alice in Chains and Soundgarden -- only the last had not yet broken through the Platinum sales plateau.

45 Years Ago: Steve Marriott Leaves the Small Faces

By the beginning of 1969, Steve Marriott was really growing tired of what he saw as the limitations of the Small Faces. Despite expanding their sound on the classic 'Ogden's Nut Gone Flake' album the previous year, Marriott's heart just wasn't in it as the new year was getting underway. "I've changed in myself and the group has changed as things have happened to us," Marriott told an interviewer in September of 1968. His participation would come to an end by March of 1969.

David Gilmour has never been the speediest fellow when it comes to maintaining his solo career. But in 1984, with his main gig in Pink Floyd at a dead end, he was finally out of excuses not to follow up his self-titled 1978 debut.
