Just a small piece on a cool website, which does what its name says – This Day In Music. It catalogues main musical events, birthdays and deaths. Obviously it’s not complete but it does give us alot of useful musical information. If you’re like me then you’ll love reading the daily trivia which in fact becomes quite addictive.
There are other parts of this website which include jobs which artists previously did and best of’s. I do like the ‘First Record‘ I bought section, mine was Slade’s ‘Cum On Feel The Noize‘. So for anyone who wants to do a pop quiz, this site should be quite a good resource, which is fully searchable too. For those who like things in print there is the obligatory companion book to accompany this website. Very compulsive site 9/10.
Syd Barrett was born on this day 6 January 1946 – so I’ve added the video of ‘Love You’.
