On this day in 1962 “Sherry” by the 4 Seasons was the #1 song.

It was on this day in 1968 that John Sebastian quit the Lovin’ Spoonful, the group he had founded three years earlier, for a solo career. You might remember his theme song for “Welcome Back Kotter.” It did go #1 on Billboard. 

Speaking of going solo, it was on this day in 1975 At Nassau Coliseum in New York, that Rod Stewart and the Faces played their final show together before Stewart embarked on a solo career.

One of my favorite singers of all time got their star on The Hollywood Walk of Fame on this day in 1983. Karen Carpenter was honored posthumously, she had died earlier in the year (Feb. 4th) at the age of 32.

The spiritual Beatle George Harrison released his single “Got My Mind Set On You” on this day in 1987.  Of Harrison’s three #1 singles in the U.S., it was the only song not written by Harrison and the only one without religious overtones. The song was written back in 1962 by a former mail carrier who’s name was Rudy Clark.

It was on this day in 1997 that we lost John Denver. He was killed at age 53 when the homemade airplane he was piloting crashed into Monterey Bay in California.
