1970 The Guess Who hit the top spot on Billboard's Hot 100 with "American Woman". The song was born by accident when guitarist Randy Bachman was playing a heavy riff on stage after he had broken a string and the band had taken a break. The other members joined in on the jam and Burton Cummings started singing the first thing that came into his head. A fan in the audience had it all on tape and presented it to the group after the show. It was quickly developed into a full song in the studio and ended up spending 3 weeks at the top of the US singles chart. It made #19 in the UK.

2013 David Bowie's latest video, which starred Gary Oldman and Marion Cotillard, was temporarily pulled from YouTube over its graphic content. "The Next Day" featured heavy religious imagery, including Cotillard bleeding from stigmata marks. The video sees Bowie performing in a basement bar, surrounded by religious figures, while Oldman, dressed as a priest, punches a homeless person before dancing with a prostitute, who is played by Oscar-winner Cotillard. YouTube admitted making the "wrong call" in removing the video, and reinstated it with an adult content warning.

The TV's on that luxury jet look so chintzy these days!

Very sad! The Butterfield Blues Band did more than just about any other band when it came to introducing Chicago blues to the burgeoning rock music scene when they burst upon the scene in 1965:

Ugggghhh!!! "Bohemian Rhapsody" is overblown by any standard and "Hey Jude" is too repetitive and thus to even be classified as one of the better singles by the Beatles.
