On this day in 1964, The Beatles released “A Hard Day’s Night” in North America. We got the album two weeks before the British and this would be the first Beatles album made up of all original compositions.

On this day in 1974 “Sundown” by Gordon Lightfoot was the #1 song.

It was on this day in 1975 that Cher divorced Sonny Bono after almost 11 years together. She married Gregg Allman four days later. That marriage lasted 10 days, but did produce some offspring. (see below)

Elvis Presley’s final concert took place at Market Square Arena in Indianapolis, on this day in 1977. He passed away just 51 days later.

On this day in 1996, Van Halen announced that Sammy Hagar had left the band and would be replaced by their former frontman, David Lee Roth. Sammy has contended that he was fired.
