This Day In Music History
1966 – Johnny Rivers went to No.1 on the US singles chart with ‘Poor Side Of Town’. Not a hit in the UK.
1970 – The Doors play their last concert with Jim Morrison in New Orleans.
1984 – Madonna releases her sophomore album, “Like A Virgin.” It becomes the Material Girl’s biggest album. The title track spends six weeks at No. 1 on Billboard singles chart and spawns the top 5 singles “Material Girl,” “Angel” and “Dress You Up.” It also launches an army of lingerie-clad pre-teen Madonna wannabes.
1999 – British rock star Gary Glitter, born Paul Francis Gadd, 55, pleads guilty at Bristol Crown Court in England, to 54 counts of taking and possessing indecent photographs of underage children. Glitter is sentenced to four months in jail after admitting to the offenses that took place between January 1997 and November 1997.
