May 4th

1967The Young Rascals started a four week run at No.1 on the US singles chart with ‘Groovin.’ Their signature hit would go on to be recorded by the likes of Booker T. & the M.G.’s, Gladys Knight & the Pips, Willie Mitchell, Sam the Sham and the Pharaohs, and Marvin Gaye.

1970 – Four students at Kent University were killed and eleven wounded by National Guard troops at a campus demonstration protesting the escalation of the Vietnam War. Many credit this event as prompting Buffalo Springfield to write the hit song  ‘For What It’s Worth.” However the Kent State incident had happened 3 years after Buffalo Springfield released their hit in 1967.

1990David Bowie’s Ex, Angela Bowie, makes the claim that Bowie and Mick Jagger had slept together in the past. She would later backtrack saying that she caught them sleeping in bed together, but she didn’t mean to imply anything sexually.

1995 - After winning a copyright lawsuit, John Fogerty is awarded $1.35 million by a San Francisco judge. Fantasy Records, claimed Fogerty’s song “The Old Man Down the Road” was a musical copy of the Creedence song “Run Through the Jungle”. A jury found that “Old Man” was not derivative.
