1947 Rock/soul musician Gary Talley (of The Box Tops and Big Star) is born in Memphis, Tennessee.

1949 Sib Hashian (drummer for Boston) is born in Boston, Massachusetts.

1965 Steve Gorman (drummer for The Black Crowes) is born in Muskegon, Michigan.

1980 At the Toledo Speedway Jam II in Toledo, Ohio, ZZ Top headlines the show with AC/DC, Sammy Hagar and Humble Pie on the undercard. (Also advertised on the poster: 800 kegs of beer, drinking age 18 in Ohio!) It is the last time AC/DC is a support act until 2003, when they open for The Rolling Stones.

2004 The venerable "Like A Rock" ad campaign comes to an end, as Chevy stops using the song and ends their association with Bob Seger. The 1986 song wasn't written for Chevy, but was used in the ads since 1989. Two years later, John Mellencamp's "Our Country" becomes the Silverado theme.

1985: ZZ Top headlined the Monster of Rock festival at Castle Donington in the U.K. Other acts on the bill included Bon Jovi, Metallica & Ratt.

1991: Nirvana filmed the music video for “Smells Like Teen Spirit” in Culver City, CA. The video cost less than $50,000 to make & led MTV to favor alternative bands in place of pop metal bands.

1991: AC/DC headlined the Monsters of Rock festival at Castle Donington in the U.K. on a bill that included Metallica, Motley Crue, Queensryche & The Black Crowes. This was the first & only time in the festival’s history that every band on the bill had a Platinum album in the U.S.

1964, Over 9,000 frenzied fans met The Beatles as they arrived in San Francisco, to begin an American tour. The Beatles were driven into a protective fence enclosure so that photographers could take pictures. As the 9,000 fans pressed against the fencing, it gave way, with The Beatles managing to get out split-seconds before it came crashing down.

1969, Mick Jagger was accidentally shot in the hand during filming of Ned Kelly in Australia. The film was dogged by problems: Jagger's girlfriend of the time, Marianne Faithfull, had gone to Australia to play the lead female role (Ned's sister, Maggie), but the Jagger-Faithfull relationship was breaking up, and she took an overdose of sleeping tablets soon after arrival in Sydney resulting in being hospitalized in a coma, and pulling out of the film.

1977, The Police made their live debut as a three-piece band when they played at Rebecca's Birmingham, England. The Police became globally popular in the late 1970s and are generally regarded as one of the first New Wave groups to achieve mainstream success, playing a style of rock that was influenced by punk, reggae, and jazz.

1986, Bon Jovi released their third studio album, Slippery When Wet, which peaked at No.1 on the US charts, going on to sell over 28 million copies worldwide. The set featured two US chart toppers, 'You Give Love A Bad Name' and 'Livin’ On A Prayer'.
