Quoting Airstud (Reply 1):
Beware the start of February.

Didn't we lose Challenger in January, too? Seems like the first six weeks of the year is pretty bad.

I am not a fan of 1950s rock and roll, but they did lay the foundation for classics like Queen, Beatles, Rolling Stones, Rush, etc. so, yeah, it was a sad day.
