This Day In Rock History: Oct 16th
1947 Bob Weir (guitarist/vocalist for Grateful Dead) is born in San Francisco, California.
1962 Flea (bassist for Red Hot Chili Peppers) is born Michael Peter Balzary in Melbourne, Australia. His nickname - originally "Mike B the Flea" - comes from his manic energy, as he is always jumping around.
2001 Bob Dylan is turned away by security guards at his concert at the Jackson County Exposition Center in Oregon because he doesn't have a credential. The guards were under orders from Dylan's security director not to let anyone through without a pass. "He said no exceptions," explained the venue manager.
