1945 John Helliwell (saxophonist for Supertramp) is born in Todmorden, Yorkshire, England.

1967 Music students at Chicago's DePaul University form a seven-piece rock ensemble called The Big Thing. Later, they would change their name to Chicago Transit Authority, and then, simply, Chicago.

1975 Rush release Fly by Night. It is their second album, following 1974's Rush, but is the first to feature new drummer/lyricist Neil Peart. Partially due to Peart's influence, this album veers from the sound of the band's debut and moves closer to the Progressive styling that eventually makes Rush a legend of the genre.

2006 The gravesite of AC/DC singer Bon Scott in Fremantle Cemetery in Western Australia is classified with a heritage listing.

2016 Prince protégé Vanity dies at age 57 after years of health problems.
