On this day in 2012, singer Bobby Brown is arrested in Los Angeles, for a DUI ticket, his second of the year.

On this day in 1995, Chrissie Hynde of The Pretenders goes back to Ohio to sing the national anthem before Game 3 of the World Series in Cleveland.  The Indians would win that game, but lose the series. 

                                                                    

On this day in 1987, Michael Jackson hits #1 with the song "Bad." The music video was directed by Martin Scorsese and co-starred a relatively unknown Wesley Snipes.

And finally, it was on this day in 1979, that The Guinness Book of World Records presented Paul McCartney with a special rhodium album, for being the best-selling songwriter in the history of recorded music, having written 43 platinum songs and sold over 100 million records.
