24 Years Ago: Billy Idol Gets in a Motorcycle Accident

We enjoy a certain amount of bad behavior from our rock stars, but within limits: No one really wants anyone to end up in rehab, prison or an early grave. On Feb. 6, 1990, Billy Idol tested those limits in a big way.

When Skid Row’s eponymous debut began invading millions of U.S. households in 1989, the quintet seemed like the latest in a long line of hair-metal bands out for fortune and fame -- not, as history has since shown, the last major success story to emerge from a dying genre.

46 Years Ago: Jimi Hendrix Records ‘All Along the Watchtower’

On Dec. 27, 1967, Bob Dylan released his first album in more than a year with the understated classic 'John Wesley Harding.' Among the great songs found on that LP was a tune called 'All Along the Watchtower.' Before the album's release, Jimi Hendrix obtained an acetate of the disc and fell in love with it. Less than two months after Dylan recorded it, Hendrix was in the studio recording his own take. On Jan. 21, 1968, Hendrix and the Experience settled in to record what would become the definitive reading of the song.

40 Years Ago: Faces Release Final Album, ‘Live – Coast to Coast Overture and Beginners’

For a band that thrived onstage, and whose live performances are legendary, it's a shame that the only official concert document of the Faces is the less-than-stellar 'Live - Coast to Coast Overture and Beginners.' Released on Jan. 10, 1974, as the group was about ready to call it quits, the album captures the Faces in typically ramshackle form during a pair of California shows from late 1973.

46 Years Ago: Bob Dylan’s ‘John Wesley Harding’ Album Released

In mid-1966, following a whirlwind couple of years in which he became a legend and a reluctant star, Bob Dylan withdrew from the public eye. And he found a reason that was fitting of his testy image at the time: He claimed he was in a motorcycle accident, which fans still dispute to this day. Was it real? Or was it staged so that the increasingly agitated and reclusive singer-songwriter could get away from it all for a while and clear his head?
