On this day in 1970, the movie “Woodstock” premiered in Hollywood. Instead of a red carpet, they had a muddy, brown carpet (just kidding!). For how many weeks was the triple-record soundtrack #1 in America?

Answer: 4 weeks

Here’s the rest of today’s Rock N’ Roll Diary!

  • 1970: “Woodstock” the movie premiered in Hollywood.
  • 1972: About 30,000 attended the first of three days at the music fest in Puerto Rico called Mar y Sol with performers that included Alice Cooper, The Allman Brothers, Rod Stewart, Emerson, Lake and Palmer, and The J. Geils Band among others.
  • 1978: The Philadelphia Furies of the North American Soccer League – a team owned by classic rock artists Mick Jagger, Peter Frampton, Rick Wakeman, and Paul Simon – lost the first game of the season 3-0 to the Washington Diplomats.
  • 1991: Elton John, dressed to look like Rachel Hunter, crashed Rod Stewart’s Wembley Stadium concert in London.
  • 1994: Kiss was among the performers at the Rockin’ The Corps concert, a fundraiser for members of the military stationed overseas and their families back home.
  • Checking the WZLX Ticket Stash… The Kinks played the Boston Music Hall in 1973.
