    .... in 1759, Georg Friedrich Händel died.

    That's it, really! Perhaps we can carry this on; a thread of music related anniversaries (better still, brass) for each day of the year?

    Any other contributions for today?

    15th April 1989 - The Hillsborough Disaster in which 96 Liverpool fans died watching their team in an FA cup semi-final. If anyone is interested have a look at the liverpool website where there is some lovely tributes and pages for those unable to visit the ground. A very sad day.
