[LESSON] This Week in Rock History - Oasis 'Wonderwall'

The week of January 13th is full of rock history. The ZOEN's resident music history aficionado Matt Brechbiel selected a few highlights from the week which you'll find below. Among those highlights is a notable event in the UK band Oasis' career. Being that the song 'Wonderwall' is one of Matt's most requested songs from those learning to play guitar, he decided to put together a demo lesson:

1966:  Singer David Jones changes his last name to Bowie in order to avoid confusion with the Monkees' Davy Jones.

1973:  Pink Floyd begin recording their legendary Dark Side of the Moon album.

1988:  With his recent hit "Got My Mind Set On You," the Beatles' George Harrison becomes the act with the longest span of Number One hits in pop music history -- 24 years. (The Beach Boys would soon break this record, however, with their hit "Kokomo.")

1996:  Oasis went to No.1 on the UK album chart with ‘(What’s The Story) Morning Glory’, the group’s second UK No.1 spent a total of 145 week’s on the chart.

1972:  Don McLean's American Pie hits #1

1977:  The Eagles' Hotel California album hits #1

1965:  The Guess Who, Shakin' All Over

1976:  Peter FramptonFrampton Comes Alive!
