The Mississippi River is rocked by earthquakes, Baltimore burns, Chaplin debuts "The Tramp," The Beatles arrive in America, and space shuttle astronauts make the first untethered spacewalk, all on this day.

OTD February 7 - Crawdaddy

Crawdaddy!

1966: Crawdaddy!, the first magazine dedicated specifically to rock 'n' roll music criticism, is published in Swarthmore College outside of Philadelphia by then student Paul Williams. The magazine, named after the legendary Crawdaddy Club in England at which the Rolling Stones played their first gig, started out as a mimeographed fanzine with a handwritten cover and stapled together pages, but quickly grew into a professional magazine with newsstand distribution. Pictured is the cover of the November 1966 issue.
