Let’s start on this day in 1966, when The Beach Boys released their future #1 song “Good Vibrations.”

Speaking of No.1’s, it was on this day in 1970, that “Cracklin’ Rosie” by Neil Diamond was the #1 song.

Queen released “Bohemian Rhapsody,” on this day in 1975. It became the third-best selling single of all time in the UK and managed to hit the charts twice here in the U.S., once in 1975 and again in 1992 when it was featured in “Wayne’s World.”

Singer Steve Perry joined Journey on this day in 1978. The first song he was featured on for the band was “Wheel in The Sky.

On this day in 1988, U2 released the album “Rattle and Hum,” featuring new tracks and live versions of some of their other songs and covers.

Brian Connolly, lead vocalist of Sweet, died of liver failure at age 51, on this day in 1997.

Let’s jump to this day in 2007, when Blender magazine published a survey giving Sting the title of worst lyricist ever. Here’s some well thought out words from his song “Field’s Of Gold.” “So she took her love/For to gaze awhile/Upon the fields of barley/In his arms she fell as her hair came down/Among the fields of gold.”

And finally a big happy birthday to David Lee Roth, who turns 63 today!
