Loch Ness, Pearl Jam's 10 and a cocktail

On this day in 565, Adomnán the chronicler of the life of Saint Columba would write that Columba, while in Scotland would come across the burial of a man who had been killed by a monster in the River Ness that flows out of the nearby Loch. Later, or so the story goes, he would save a swimmer from the beast by making the sign of the Cross and with the incantation "Thou shalt go no further, nor touch the man; go back with all speed." The beast then fled. The passage would be the first written reference to the Loch Ness Monster.



On this day in 1992, nearly a year after its release, Pearl Jam's debut album Ten would peak at number two on the Billboard Charts where it would remain for four weeks.
