This Day In Rock History: April 30th


1970 Twiggs Lyndon, the road manager for the Allman Brothers Band, was arrested for murder after he stabbed a club manager during an argument over a contract. At the ensuing trial, Lyndon's lawyers argued that he had been temporarily insane at the time of the incident and that touring with the Allman Brothers would drive anyone insane. Incredibly, Lyndon was acquitted.

1983 Blues guitarist Muddy Waters, born McKinley Morganfield, died of a heart attack at the age of 68. He is considered "the father of modern Chicago Blues" and was a major inspiration for the British Blues explosion in the 1960s. He has been ranked #17 in Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 100 Greatest Artists of All Time
