Chubby Checker was guest performer on  “American Bandstand,” on this day in 1961.

Let’s stay with “Bandstand” and move to this day in 1968, when The McCoys performed “Hang On Sloopy.” 

On this day in 1976 Elton John performed for the first of seven sold-out nights at New York’s Madison Square Garden. The $1.25 million generated from the shows broke the record set by the Rolling Stones in 1975.

On this day in 1978 “Three Times A Lady” by the Commodores was the #1 song.

We roll to this day in 1985. Madonna’s “Like A Virgin” became the first album by a female artist to sell 5 million copies.

Sad news to report. It was on this day in 2008 that Isaac Hayes died at his home in Memphis, Tennessee, at the age of 65.

And finally on this day in 2012, Neil Diamond received his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
