Happy birthday Mick Jagger. Does he have any siblings?

Answer: Yes, a younger brother named Chris who also sings and releases albums

Here’s the rest of the Rock N’ Roll Diary for today:

  • 1968: Speaking of the devil, the Rolling Stones’ album “Beggar’s Banquet” missed its scheduled release date because of record company objections to the cover design, which showed a graffiti-covered lavatory wall. Eventually the band compromised on a white cover and it wasn’t until years later that the original bathroom cover returned as the cover of the CD package.
  • 1974: The Stones’ album “It’s Only Rock and Roll” was released.
  • 1975: The Eagles album “One of These Nights” hit #1.
  • 1986: Peter Gabriel got to the top of the charts with “So” album.
  • 1990: Grateful Dead keyboardist Brent Mydland died of a drug overdose.
  • 1992: Kiss guitarist and singer Paul Stanley got married to Pamela Bowen.

In the WZLX ticket stash…

  • 1974: The Allman Brothers were at the Boston Garden with special guests the Eagles.
  • 1990: Paul McCartney played the second of two nights at Foxboro Stadium.
  • 1991: Steve Miller was at Great Woods.
  • 2002: The Who played the Tweeter Center with Robert Plant opening the show!
