ON THIS DAY

1957 – Buddy Holly and The Crickets topped the Billboard chart with ‘That’ll Be The Day’.

1970 – Mick Jagger Bianca Macias after a Stones concert in Paris.  they later married….and divorced.  it was an introduction that eventually would cost him millions.

1989 – Millie Vanilli began a two week run atop the Billboard Hot 100 with ‘Girl I’m Gonna Miss You’, their second #1 that Rob and Fab had nothing to do with.  It would all come crashing down for the fake front men later that year when it was revealed they never sang a note on any of the recordings.

1997 – The Rolling Stones kicked off the North American leg of their ‘Bridges To Babylon’ tour.  When the tour came to Sun Devil Stadium on November 7th, I was there in the 20th row witnessing one of the five best concerts I’ve ever seen.  worth every penny I paid for the ticket.  Check out the setlist.

1968 – The Beatles and Jim Morrison in the same studio?  It’s rumored to have happened while the group was at Abbey Road studio recording ‘Happiness Is A Warm Gun’ for the ‘White’ album.  Taking it a step further, Jim is also said to have sung along on the chorus.  What is known as a fact, is a: Jim Morrison was in London on that day and b: The Beatles recorded the song that day at Abbey Road.  True or not, it’s tantalizing conjecture.
