  • Let's Try This Again

    Birthdays

    1897: Sidney Bechet

    1917: Norman Luboff

    1927: "Ain't She Sweet?" hits #1 on the singles chart by Ben Bernie

    1936: Bobby Darin - born Walden Robert Cassotto.

    1943: Jack Bruce (Cream, Manfred Mann, John Mayall & the Bluesbreakers)

    1952: David Byrne (Talking Heads)

    1966: Fabrice Morvan (Milli Vanilli)

    Events, Releases, Charts and more

    1958: Buddy Holly visits his optometrist's office to correct his horrible 20/800 vision with primitive contact lenses, but Buddy hates them, and decides to keep his signature glasses.

    1966: For the record ninth time in three years, The Kingsmen's hit version of Louie Louie enters the Billboard singles charts.

    1968: On a publicity tour to promote their new venture, Apple, John Lennon and Paul McCartney agree to appear on NBC-TV's Tonight Show with Johnny Carson. Unfortunately, Carson is on vacation that week, and his replacement, sportscaster Joe Garagiola, has almost no idea what to talk about with the pair (at one point, he actually asks which one of the two is Ringo). Guest Tallulah Bankhead, for her part, seems to look upon the duo's appearance as an affront to her Golden Age of Hollywood stardom. The interview is a disaster, cut short so as to give the appearance that the two lead Beatles have somewhere to go. The only existing video copy is a three-minute excerpt a fan films by pointing a video camera at his TV set; fan audio of the entire interview has been widely bootlegged.

    1973: No. 1 Billboard Pop Hit: Stevie Wonder's You Are The Sunshine Of My Life

    1976: Keith Relf (Yardbirds) died from electrocution while playing an improperly grounded electric guitar. He was 33 years old.

    1977: Leo Sayer's "When I Need You" hits #1 in the US.

    1981: No. 1 Billboard Pop Hit: Kim Carnes' Bette Davis Eyes

    1982: The Clash released the album "Combat Rock."

    1988: Atlantic Records' 40th Anniversary celebration takes place at New York's Madison Square Garden, featuring appearances from many famous artists on the label's roster: The Bee Gees, Wilson Pickett, The Rascals, The Coasters, Emerson, Lake And Palmer, Crosby, Stills & Nash, Foreigner, Yes, Genesis, and the event's main attraction, a rare reunion of Led Zeppelin, with John Bonham's son Jason taking over drums for his late father.
