Here’s one that has always baffled me. On this day in 1980, after Gene Simmons’ then-girlfriend Diana Ross told KISS drummer Peter Criss he was too talented for the band, he quit. He was replaced by Eric Carr.

On this day in 1990 “Vogue” by Madonna was the #1 song.

Barry Manilow guested on “Murphy Brown” on this day in 1993 and sang “I Am Your Child.”

More musical cameos. It was on this day in 2010, ZZ Top made an appearance on “Two And A Half Men.”

It’s hard to believe this was 5 years ago. On this day in 2012, we lost super disco diva Donna Summer. She died of lung cancer at 63. She was a 5 time Grammy Award winner and had 4 #1’s on the Billboard Hot 100, but 11 dance #1’s. Long live the music of the great Donna Summer!
