The week in music history brought to you by MusicGoldmine.com.
Just a couple of highlights from this week in music history!
JAN 19: Happy 75th birthday to Dolly Parton, born today in 1946! Her debut album was released in 1967 and she never looked back. Not only is Parton known for her music, but also her philanthropy. She has sold over 100 million records worldwide!
JAN 25: Today in 1961, the all-girl group The Shirelles were at #1 with “Will You Love Me Tomorrow”. The Carole King and Gerry Goffin penned song was the first song to go to the top by a black all-girl group!
JAN 30: Happy 70th birthday to Phil Collins, born today in 1951! He had more US Top 40 hits in the 1980s than any other artist, when you total his Genesis hits, solo hits, and hits with others! Collins joined Genesis in 1970 playing drums and in 1975 became their drummer and lead singer after Peter Gabriel left the band. He continues to perform today and Genesis has a tour tentatively scheduled at the end of the year.
