We start on this day in 1964, when Martha & The Vandellas released “Dancing In The Streets.”
Ringo Starr quit The Beatles, on this day in 1968, during The White Album sessions when the constant bickering and tension became too much for him. After Ringo walked out, the remaining Beatles recorded “Back In the USSR,” with Paul on drums and John playing bass. He rejoined the band on September 3rd.
It happened on this day, in 1970, at a studio in Miami. Derek and the Dominos began work on their first and only studio album, “Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs.” Here’s Clapton doing the song he wrote for future wife Pattie Boyd.
Led Zeppelin released their last album of exclusively new material, “In Through The Out Door,” on this day in 1979. The album has sold over 6 million copies to date.
On this day in 1984 “Ghostbusters” by Ray Parker, Jr. was the #1 song.
In 1987, Madonna went to No.1 on the US and U.K. singles charts with “Who’s That Girl'”, her sixth US No.1.
And finally it was on this day in 2014, that John Lennon’s assassin, 59-year-old Mark David Chapman, was denied parole for the eighth time. He has since been denied again in September of 2016.
