  14. 1916 Monday: During World War I, the horrendous battle of Verdun continues as the French mount counterattacks against recent German domains.  The city of Verdun is a fortress surrounded by a series of fortresses (sort of like Dien Bien Phu would be decades later though not as fortified) and the Germans believe if they can punch through they might be able to bring France to its knees, possibly knock her out of the war for good.

  17. 1919 Thursday: The victorious allies hammering out the post-World War I peace in Paris, France, had sent South African General Jan Smuts to Budapest where a new Soviet-style regime had seized power.  The idea was to negotiate a peace between east and west but it was failure, the communists had no intention of participating in anything.  All Western diplomatic missions begin pulling out and American wives of Hungarian citizens are to leave with the British.  Things are in an uproar in Eastern Europe thanks to the NEW Soviet Union.  
  18. 1922 Monday: In the USSR, Josef Stalin becomes general secretary of the Communist Party.  Lenin, suffering from poor health did not want to appoint his far more murderous comrade Stalin to this post but Stalin was ‘caretaker’ for the ailing revolutionary.  Soon, Stalin would begin consolidating his power.

  25. 1942 Friday: The Japanese commenced their first all-out assault on U.S. and Filipino forces defending the Bataan Peninsula.  Elsewhere, the Imperial Japanese carry out a firebombing on Mandalay, the capital of Burma, killing thousands of Burmese and British nationals who haven’t yet fled for their lives.
  26. 1943 Saturday: Richard Manuel, future pianist, and vocalist with the Band[i] was born in Stratford, Ontario, Canada, on this date.  Meanwhile, a sad incident occurs in Wellington, New Zealand, when U.S. Marines got into a fight with New Zealand troops of Maori origin.  The Marines did not want them entering the servicemen’s club.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Age can never keep a good band down and UFO came roaring back three years after “The Monkey Puzzle” with “The Visitor,” which came out on June 02, 2009.  Joining vocalist Phill Mogg are longtime UFO veterans Andy Parker (drums), Paul Raymond (keyboards, vocals, and perhaps one of the hardest working musicians in all of rock), Vinnie Moore (guitars), and Peter Pichl (bass).  Folks, all we can say is that many bands don’t age well but these guys- Christ, they have been around far longer than lots of other bands.  Other than the Rolling Stones who have the all-time record for longevity (must be because they sold their souls for rock-and-roll), UFO has been around far longer than Led Zeppelin, the Kinks, the Who, the Faces, and many, many others so what the heck are you waiting for?  Seek this one out and make it a part of your listening day.

  62. 2018 Monday: In the 80th NCAA Men’s Basketball Championship Game, Villanova whips Michigan 79-62.  Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump lambastes the Chi-Coms for possessing the chutzpah to put retaliatory tariffs of up to 25-percent on 128 American products including American wines and pork products.  This is in response to the U.S. having slapped tariffs onto Chinese imports of both steel and aluminum, two poorly made Chi-Com products they have habitually dumped into the U.S. sans any blowback- until now.
  63. 2019 Tuesday: Climatologists claim that Canada is warming at twice the rate of the rest of the world, increasing 2.3% in the northern environs of the country.  Green New Deal lovers are dancing in the streets at the news.  Meanwhile, NASA lays out plans to return to the moon in 2024 and to put astronauts on Martian soil by 2033.  Meanwhile, Google +, a highly popular social media app (although Google says different) begins deleting its user accounts.  People had wonderful sites in perhaps one of the best social media platforms but Google- since they blew the 2016 Presidential Election notified its users in late 2018 that it was going to shut down the site due to low user activity and vulnerabilities that- if we are to believe them- were too difficult to fix.  They were too LAZY to fix them IF they existed.  Google shut down nothing else…scumbags.[viii]  
  64. 2020 Thursday: COVID-19 continues running amok around the world.  The Democratic Party has postponed its 2020 Convention until mid-August with the GOP following them on August 24 through the 27th.   In the United States, we currently have 226,300 confirmed cases with many more to be sure plus about 5,300 confirmed deaths.  The Guardian claims there are more than 750,000 confirmed cases worldwide with the death toll skyrocketing to over 36,000.  Unemployment numbers for the previous week double the prior week by coming in at 6.6 million new unemployment claims.  Some economists project as many as 20 million additional unemployed by the time we hit May.  Cloward and Piven would be delighted.  Meanwhile, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo announces he will go back to the well in China so he can buy some of their top-of-the-line ventilators.  Does no one ever learn?  Food banks in the United States report a 92% jump in people seeking food thanks to the Wuhan Virus.   On a lighter note, Egypt reports a spike in ISIS attacks in the northern Sinai.  We say, “Crucify them!”
  65. 2021 Friday: YOU know the drill.  Let’s hope it’s not a heavy news day…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Michael Schenker and longtime friend and collaborator Gary Barden joined forces to create a solo album much beloved by fans of both musicians- “Gipsy Lady”- aka the Schenker-Barden Project.  The album came out on May 19, 2009, and fans were elated.  However, if you only know Schenker and Barden from the heavy duty rock and roll days, it’s possible you might be disappointed.  Still, after several plays the album has a way of growing on you and becoming a part of your playlist.  Please, seek it out and consider giving it a listen- you will be extremely glad you did.  We promise.

ENDNOTES:


[i] We hope to share the music of Leon Russell, an extremely talented singer-songwriter-musician one day.  Please, stay tuned.

[ii] On Wednesday, 14-June-2017, we began presenting the music of the Guess Who and of its individual members- including Bachman-Turner Overdrive, Randy Bachman, Burton Cummings, and Bravebelt..  The entire discography ran from the above date through Sunday, 01-October-2017.  We hope you will check them out.

[iii] We promoted the music of the James Gang beginning on Saturday, 11-August-2012 through Monday, 27-August-2012.  We did not do the solo discography of Joe Walsh at the time but when we arrive at the Eagles, we most certainly will.

[iv] We are not sure when we will present the music of the Cars but if you are still with us when we celebrate our second decade of activity, you may see them then so please, stay with us.  We thank you.

[v] We hope to share the music of Lynyrd Skynyrd sometime in the next decade.  At least by 2029.

[vi] Our main reference for the epic battle at Dien Bien Phu is “The Last Valley” by Martin Windrow, 2004, Da Capo Press.  Please seek this amazing historical work out for a concise look at the battle that ended French control of French Indochina and the birth of Vietnam.

[vii] We first began offering the music of Fleetwood Mac on Monday, 03-January-2011 through Thursday, 27-January-2011.  Please seek their music out by checking posts on those corresponding dates.  We look forward to picking them back up and doing a Round No. 2 which will include the solo efforts of the band members, too.  We thank you.

[viii] The AICPENDBLOG.COM believes that Sundar Pichai and his entire family should be deported back to Punjabistan or wherever the f**k they came.
