This Day in Rock History: February 24th

Time to take a look back into this day in rock history: February 24

The first album in history to be certified Platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America is the Eagles’ “Their Greatest Hits 1971 – 1975”. That represents sales of at least 1 million copies for albums and 2 million copies for singles.  The album stays on the charts for two and a half years and, at times, has been the top selling rock album of all time.
Peter Noone of Herman’s Hermits, Eric Idle of Monty Python and Stephen Bishop guest star on ABC’s Laverne and Shirley.  
The British band-mates take the girls to a Hollywood party where they have a strange reaction to “brownies”.
Alice Cooper runs for governor of Arizona as part of the Wild Party.  Oh, he didn’t win.
Queen Elizabeth II knights Sir Reginald Dwight, make that Elton John, at Buckingham palace.  His partner and parents are there to cheer him on.
Yeah, we don’t want it.  The Sex Pistols impolitely reject their induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
