Kick Out The Jams, MF

Scrolling through the list of events for Nov. 4 on wikipedia I saw that Fred Smith died on this day in 1994. Smith was married to and collaborated with Patti Smith and was the inspiration for the Sonic Youth, named after him.

It stuck out to me because he was a guitarist for the MC5, hard rock band credited with being an early entrant into the punk scene. One of the exes, The Drummer, introduced me to the MC5 when her band opened for Wayne Kramer. Brother Wayne was a founding member of the band and was on a solo tour at the time.
