1964 – Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel record ‘The Sounds Of Silence’ as an acoustic duo. It wasn’t until record company producers added electric guitar, bass and drums, without the knowledge of Paul and Art, that the song would become a hit in late 1965.

1979 – Gloria Gaynor started a three week run at No.1 on the US singles chart with ‘I Will Survive’, also a No.1 in the UK. The song was originally released as the B-side to a song first recorded by The Righteous Brothers called ‘Substitute.’

1988 – Andy Gibb dies of an inflammatory heart virus at age 30. The singer scored three straight No. 1’s in the ’70s with “I Just Want to Be Your Everything,” “(Love Is) Thicker Than Water,” and “Shadow Dancing.”

2003 – A Spanish hairdresser pays over a thousand dollars for a lock of hair George Harrison cut off in 1964. The hair will be displayed in Rafael Pages’ hairdressing museum in Barcelona.
