Today's Tidbit

I find today's mention comical. On this day in 1973 the BBC banned all teenybopper acts from appearing on the UK show "Top of the Pops" because of a riot that broke out after a David Cassidy performance. Riot and David Cassidy. Kind of hard to put that in perspective and I guess back in 1973 dealing with screaming 12 year old girls was difficult for the older generation to handle. Thus the ban and riot label.

I saw David Cassidy poke his head out of the ground recently to make a ridiculous appearance on The Celebrity Apprentice. He got fired on the first day and probably had 40-50 year old housewives wondering what they'd seen in the soft spoken singer.

He actually did have a valid song or two regardless of his supposed lack of musical talent or the fact he was a mere product of television and record labels. Here now is a piece or two of music history.
