Tonight (December 2) marks the first night of Hanukkah, and thanks to Adam Sandler referring to the holiday as “Eight Crazy Nights,” we thought we’d look back at eight crazy nights in classic rock history. Enjoy!
Ozzy & The Alamo
Just another drunken night of urinating on a historical landmark.
Ozzy raises his concerns about his return to the Alamo, thinking that Texans aren't quite over him urinating on the Alamo. Ozzy and Jack's World Detour Sundays 10/9c only on HISTORY.
Police Raid Keith Richards’ Home
Among those busted during the infamous 1967 raid for various drug possession charges were Mick Jagger and then girlfriend Marianne Faithfull, who was reportedly only wearing a fur rug at the time of the bust. Not sure how one could wear a rug…
Jim Morrison (Allegedly) Exposes Himself
Probably one of the Lizard King’s most infamous moments, Morrison was arrested in March 1969 for apparently dropping his pants during a concert in Florida, even though no photographic evidence was found.
The Led Zeppelin Mudshark Incident
We’ve all heard about this myth, and if you haven’t, check out this video for all the (alleged) lurid details.

The Beatles at Shea Stadium
Doing a complete 180 from the last story, this iconic moment is crazy thanks to the wild fans in attendance and the sheer attendance itself.
The Beatles take to the stage at Shea Stadium.
Jimi Hendrix at the Monterey Pop Festival
In the same vein of iconic performances, Hendrix’s set at the Monterey Pop Festival is one of the best in history. Oh…and then there’s the whole lighting his guitar on fire thing.
(por cierto, el señor que se rie, al que quieren hacer una foto antes de salir hendrix solo es sir brian jones, el autentico rolling stones). Mi filosofia de vida no me permite comparar a las personas, mas que nada porque cada uno tiene su vida, con sus alegrias y su mierda, pero hare una excepcion, en los festivales de ahora, no vais a encontrar canciones como estas.
Bob Dylan Goes Electric
Seems funny that this was such a big deal, but people were irate about Bob Dylan performing electric for the first time at the Newport Folk Festival. Just listen to the boos at the end of “Maggie’s Farm” in the clip below.
Any given night with Keith Moon
Honestly, we could’ve done an entire “Eight Crazy Nights” list just about Moon The Loon. Pick a story. They’re all pretty much true. Just ask good friend Alice Cooper.
