Today in musical anniversaries: Otis Redding and most of his backing band perished when their small plane crashed into a Wisconsin lake in 1967; the pioneering punk dive CBGB opened in New York in 1973; Led Zeppelin reunited for the first time in decades in London in 2007; Mike Nesmith of The Monkees died in 2021; Rick Danko of The Band passed away in his sleep in 1999; Frank Zappa was pushed off the stage in London by a crazed fan in 1971; Dinosaur Jr. singer-guitarist J Mascis was born in 1965; and former White Stripes drummer Meg White came into the world in 1974.
