Local Philadelphia radio station, 88.5 WXPN has compiled their list of the 885 most important moments in music history. I’ve never been a huge fan of lists when ranking is based on nothing more then opinion, but the collection of historical music events does succeed in illuminating some of the most pivotal moments in music.
I’ve spent a few hours getting lost in some of the events and their consequences and I’m bound to come back a few more times and explore other events. In short its worth a gander. Oh and their pick for the most influential moment in music history: ’69 Woodstock.
