1955 - Elvis releases his first number 1 hit, ‘I Forgot to Remember to Forget’. It hit the top of the country charts in February of the following year, and remained for 5 weeks at the top. It would be considered the only traditional country song Elvis’ group ever released.

1968The Rascals start their five-week run at No.1 on the singles chart with ‘People Got To Be Free’. It would be the group’s second-most successful single on the Billboard Black Singles chart, reaching number 14 and trailing only to the previous year’s ‘Groovin’.

1973 – It’s a sad day for Temptations fans when former Temptation Paul Williams is found dead in his car, after shooting himself. His new business endeavor had failed and he owed $80000 in taxes.

1998Carlos Santana receives his star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame after more then 30 years of playing and recording. It may have been his recent return into the spotlight, showcasing his guitar chops paired with vocals from several of the current pop music icons.
