They Are Missed:

In 1972, Rory Storme, the leader of one of Liverpool's earlier beat groups, overdosed on sleeping pills in what is presumed to be a suicide pact with his mother. Rory Storme and the Hurricanes are best remembered as the group Ringo Starr departed in 1962 to play drums for the Beatles.

In 1986, Metallica bass player Cliff Burton was crushed to death after the bands tour bus crashed between Stockholm and Copenhagen. During a European tour members from the band drew cards for the most comfortable bunk on the tour bus, Burton had won the game with an Ace of Spades and was asleep when the tour bus ran over a patch of black ice and skidded off of the road. He was thrown through the window of the bus, which fell on top of him.

Morrison suffered severe brain injuries in a polo accident at the Royal Berkshire Polo Club, England in 2006, and never recovered. He also managed The Pretty Things and was a music publisher for Syd Barrett, The Bee Gees, Elton John, The Jam, T-Rex and Wham!


In 1938, "Thanks for the Memory" was heard for the first time on the The Bob Hope Show.

Glenn Miller and his Orchestra performed together for the last time in 1942. Miller volunteered for the U.S. Army and disappeared December 15, 1944 over the English Channel.

Martha and the Vandellas' first single "I'll Have to Let Him Go" was released in 1962.

Singing her new single "Love of The Loved," which was written by Lennon and McCartney, Cilla Black made her debut on TV's' 'Ready Steady Go! in 1963.

The Beach Boys made their first appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show in 1964, singing "I Get Around."

Working on new songs in 1967, the Beatles recorded various parts for the new John Lennon song "I Am The Walrus" and the new Paul McCartney song "Fool On The Hill."

In 1968, the Jackson 5 opened a Gary, Indiana concert for Stevie Wonder and Gladys Knight (Gladys, not Diana Ross, tips off Motown Records to sign them).

Santana's self-titled debut album entered the LP charts in 1969. The double-platinum album contained the Top Ten hit, "Evil Ways."

Creedence Clearwater Revival's "Green River" peaked at #2 on the singles chart in 1969. CCR never had a #1 song in the US.

In 1979, moments after beginning the tune "Better Off Dead," Elton John collapsed onstage at the Universal Amphitheatre. He was suffering from exhaustion brought on by the flu. After a ten minute intermission, John returned to finish a concert lasting nearly three hours.

The Police released their second album, "Regatta de Blanc" in 1979.

The Beatles didn't need to make a comeback, but they did so anyway in 1986 thanks to "Twist and Shout" being featured on the soundtracks to Ferris Bueller's Day Off and the Rodney Dangerfield masterpiece Back to School. The single re-enters the chart today and gets to #23. It's the Fab Four's first charting single since 1982's "The Beatles' Movie Medley."

John Mellencamp and his song "Our Country" are featured in an advertising campaign for Chevrolet's ‘07 Silverado pickup truck in 2006. Mellencamp says the partnership "makes perfect sense" because Chevy is an American company and his song "is all about standing up for the working people who are the backbone of our nation."
