This Day In Music: October 1st

On This Day In Music: October 1st, there were some highs and some lows.

Jimi Hendrix performed on stage alongside Eric Clapton and Cream in the UK on this day in 1966. The day also hits a solemn note for the electric guitar virtuoso, as he was buried four years later in 1970.

Bon Jovi rose to the top of the UK charts with the band's fourth album "New Jersey". Featuring songs like Bad Medicine, it was a stepping stone for the rock band and led to the record-breaking fifth album, "Slippery When Wet", which set the hard rock record with five songs cracking the Billboard Top 10.

And more recently on this day in 2018, French singer, actor, activist, and diplomat Charles Aznavour died in his home at the age of 94. He sold over 180 million records worldwide and was dubbed "France's Frank Sinatra".

This Day in Music features Jimi Hendrix rocking with Eric Clapton, Bon Jovi's breakthrough, and the death of French legend Charles Aznavour.
