ON THIS DAY

1971 – Cher began the second week of a two week run atop the Billboard Hot 100 with her first #1 hit ‘Gypsys Tramps and Thieves’.  She’s had three more since then: ‘Dark Lady’, ‘If I Could Turn Back Time’, and ‘Believe’.

1973 – Jerry Lee Lewis Jr. was killed in a car accident in Mississippi.  He had been working as a drummer in his father’s band.

1982- Men At Work began a 15 week run atop the Billboard album chart with their debut album ‘Business As Usual’.  Th album would eventually sell over five million copies in the U.S. alone.

1990 – Patricia Boughton is a woman Rod Stewart will never forget.  She filed a lawsuit against Rod claiming a football he kicked into the crowd during a concert at Michigan’s Pine Knob Music Theatre had ruptured a tendon in her middle finger.  As a result (according to her) the injury had made…ummm…..an intimate relationship with her husband difficult.  (I don’t want to know…)

1999 – Cliff Richard signed up with internet Remotemusic.com, becoming the first major artist to sign with an online company.

2000 – The Beatles launched their first official website www.thebeatles.com on the same day as the release of their compilation album “1” which contained all #1 hits by the group.  Their top 5 hits?
