Today In Metal History  June 6th, 2023  SLAYER, RATT, LACUNA COIL, HEART, KING DIAMOND

17 years ago today (06/06/06), the International Day Of SLAYER was born! Those who observe the holiday are encouraged to stage "Slay-outs": "Listen to Slayer at full blast in your car, in your home, at your place of employment, and in any public place you prefer."
Happy International Day Of SLAYER!

Pretty historical moment, given the fact that these rare television performances touched the hearts of so many, especially when ELVIS PRESLEY and THE BEATLES appeared on our tiny black and white screens. Twenty-four years after its 1948 premiere, The Ed Sullivan Show had its final broadcast on June 6th, 1971. 52 years ago today. Note: GLADYS KNIGHT AND THE PIPS were the musical guests on the final episode.
