For weeks, we’ve highlighted “On this Date In Music” by Michael Walter. It provides a day to day history of the music that inspires us and the bands and artists who create it. What inspired Eric Clapton to write “Wonderful Tonight?” How did Hootie & the Blowfish get their name? Who turned down “Happy” before Pharrell turned it into a worldwide hit? What chance encounter led to one of David Bowie’s most successful albums? How did Colonel Tom Parker make money off non-Elvis fans? What current event forced a last minute lyric change in “Sympathy for the Devil?” Who is 2pac named after? Which band stole the show at Live Aid (and which band was a big disappointment)? How did Madonna turn an MTV ban into a record number of video sales? Why did Paul Anka write “My Way” for Frank Sinatra?
You’ll discover the answers to all of these questions and so many more in On This Date In Music. If you’re a music lover who enjoys discovering “behind the scenes” stories about the songs and bands you’ve always loved this is the book for you! You can get Michael’s book at OnThisDateInMusic.com. #OnThisDateInMusic #MichaelWalter
