From The Harry Chapin Wiki
On this day:
- 1972 - Harry Chapin's first major performance is opening for Carly Simon at Symphony Hall in Boston. In what is to become a tradition, Harry was almost late for this gig. As Harry wowed the audience perhaps too much for an opening act, Billboard Magazine reported there was an ego problem in pairing the two Elektra artists on the same bill.
- 1997 - Greatest Stories Live becomes the first Harry Chapin album to be certified Platinum by the RIAA.
