2021 Former Uriah Heep vocalist John Lawton passed away at the age of 74. Lawton joined the band in 1976, replacing original lead singer David Byron just as the band was working on its 10th album, "Firefly". A year later, the LP "Innocent Victim" would produce the huge, international hit, "Free Me". Though Lawton would leave the band in 1979, he remained on good terms with his former bandmates.

1967 Jefferson Airplane's psychedelic masterpiece "White Rabbit" entered the Billboard chart, where it eventually reached #8. The song became one of the first records to sneak drug references past radio censors. It uses imagery found in Lewis Carroll's 1865 book Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and its 1871 sequel Through the Looking-Glass, such as changing size after taking pills.
