As time zooms forward, we have arrived at our 401st Music Minute post and I almost didn’t notice! That’s right, ladies and gentlemen, it seems as though it was just last week that we reached the 300th instalment of our series and but it was yesterday that we cracked the big 4-0-0!
To date, we have shared 400 music history facts via our Music Minute series on The Lava Lizard and I am thrilled to have made it this far! Thanks to this innovative series, we have been able to reflect on the remarkable achievements and losses that have occurred in the entertainment industry, and honored the legacies of some of our favourite artists.
