Thursday 12-22-16 Cheap Trick – Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds
Today is Cheap Tricks guitarist, Rick Nielson’s Birthday. Cheap Trick went into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in April of this year. Their first 3 albums were unsuccessful in the US but they had a loyal following in Japan. Cheap Tricks Live in Budokan CD was only going to be released in Japan but demand for the import in the U. S. was so huge that their record company decided to release it here. The rest is rock and roll history. To mark the 42nd Anniversary of the release of the Beatles Sgt. Pepper album, Cheap Trick performed Sgt. Pepper Live” in Las Vegas in 2009 with a full orchestra. Today…Live at Five is from that concert.
