Journey Goes Gold and Frank Zappa Graduates

As I was packing up some books for the move to paradise I came upon a book I hadn't really looked at in years...It's a "This Day in History" book but about music...but the things they think are historic are a little laughable...

For example, coming up on July 3rd we've got "Journey's Departure LP goes gold (1980)." Goooo Journey! Or my personal favorite on June 13th we have "Frank Zappa graduates from Antelope Valley High School, Lancaster California (1958)." Doesn't every rock star graduate from high school...and always in June???

Journey -- Lights
From their Greatest Hits.

Frank Zappa -- Montana
From The Best Of collection.
