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

The first episode of Don Kirshner’s Rock Concert hits the airwaves.

The Beach Boys were struggling not to be seen as an oldies act by the time they played this 1975 date at the Richfield Coliseum with Dave Mason.

We lost one of the greats on this date as Queen’s Freddy Mercury dies of AIDS just days after admitting he contracted the disease.
