On this day in Rock History (January 29th):  In 1967, Jimi Hendrix and The Who appeared at The Saville Theatre, London, England. 20 year-old future Queen guitarist Brian May was in the audience.  Also, in 1977, Aerosmith's “Walk This Way” becomes a Top 10 single.  (The song is inspired by a line in Mel Brooks’ comedy Young Frankenstein.)  Our Rocker Biographies have some pretty wild stories to tell.....
