This Day in Music History — November 12

1968 : Jimi Hendrix’s third album, Electric Ladyland, shows the famous guitarist on the cover along with a collection of naked women. You can only get it in England – the American version is released with an alternate cover.

1990 : Ron Wood, formerly of The Faces and currently of The Rolling Stones, is badly injured when hit by a car in London, breaking both legs.

1997 : Carly Simon is hospitalized with breast cancer, undergoing both chemo and a mastectomy.

2012 : After 35 years, 11 albums, and soldiering on without their lead man Michael Hutchence, INXS confirms that they are indeed hanging up their guitars and calling it quits. The band had actually announced the news days earlier at a concert in Perth, Australia, during which they broke the news onstage and drummer Jon Farriss even admitted that he was getting a little teary-eyed at the thought of their last show.
