Simile Timeline provides a neat way to display events and we have been using it on the FOLD project and on the DSA module to represent the events in the life of music artists and groups, with data extracted by hand from a copy of the Rolling Stones Review.

The endpoint is

There is also an HTML page view of the same data,with added comment text: e.g.
The Allman Brothers Band
A separate query creates an index, with links to both views, derived from a Category:
The next step is to derive a set of life events for the group and group members - births, marriages and deaths - to place on a parallel timeline.
