The Day the Rock Star Died: John Denver
This week, we remember one of the world’s best-known and most-loved performers, John Denver! Denver began his music career with folk music groups during the late 1960s, and by the 1970s, he was one of the most popular acoustic artists of the decade and one of its best-selling artists! By 1974, he was firmly established as one of America’s best-selling performers, often described as “among the most beloved entertainers of his era.” With total sales of over 33 million records worldwide, John Denver’s lyrics reflect his joy in nature and disdain for city life, his enthusiasm for music, as well as his relationship trials. We’re celebrating his life and legacy this Tuesday on The Day The Rock Star Died at 8:30/7:30c.
Docs That Rock: The Rolling Stones’ Bobby Keys: Every Night’s A Saturday Night
Born in Slaton, Texas, Bobby Keys has lived the kind of life that qualifies as a rock ‘n’ roll folktale. In his early teens, Keys bribed his way into Buddy Holly’s garage band rehearsals. Keys spent years on the road during the early days of rock ‘n’ roll with hitmakers like Bobby Vee and the various acts on Dick Clark’s Caravan of Stars Tour. He then spent decades as top touring and session sax man for the likes of Mad Dogs and Englishmen, George Harrison, John Lennon, as well as his gig with The Rolling Stones from 1970 onward! Every Night’s a Saturday Night finds Keys setting down the many tales of an over-the-top rock ‘n’ roll life in his inimitable voice. Don’t miss its AXS TV premiere this Tuesday at 10/9c.
