They Are Missed:

Born on this day in 1948, John Martyn, singer, songwriter, guitarist, (1973 album 'Solid Air'). Died in hospital on Jan 30, 2009 in Ireland at the age of 60. The folk, blues and funk artist was widely regarded as one of the most soulful and innovative singer-songwriters of his generation and had been cited as an influence by artists as varied as U2, Portishead and Eric Clapton.


The Drifters recorded "Up On The Roof" in 1962.

DJ Murray-the-K's "It's What's Happening, Baby" TV special aired on CBS in 1965 with the Drifters, the Dave Clark Five, Tom Jones, Gary Lewis, the Supremes and many others.

Dick Clark’s afternoon teen music show, 'Where The Action Is,' made its debut on ABC in 1965. The "house" band was Paul Revere & The Raiders.

Working at Abbey Road studios in 1968, the Beatles recorded "Good Night," John Lennon’s lullaby for his 5-year-old son Julian, with Ringo singing the lead vocal. The track appeared on the White Album.

Aretha Franklin appeared on the cover of Time magazine in 1968.

Henry Mancini started a two week run at #1 on the US singles chart in 1969 with "Love Theme from Romeo And Juliet."

Neil Young joins Crosby, Stills and Nash on their tour in 1969. Young’s addition comes at the suggestion of Atlantic Records president Ahmet Ertegun. CSN becomes CSN&Y.

The Eagles started a five-week run at #1 on the US album chart in 1975 with 'One Of These Nights.'

In 1975, American singer songwriter Tim Buckley completed the last show of a tour in Dallas, Texas, playing to a sold-out crowd of 1,800 people. This was Buckley’s last ever show, he died the following day of a heroin and morphine overdose (age 28).

David Bowie's "Fame" was released in 1975.

Elton John achieved a life long ambition in 1977 when he became the Chairman of Watford Football Club.

Paul McCartney's "Coming Up" became one of the few 'live' recordings to reach the top of Billboard's Hot 100 in 1980. However, American disc jockeys preferred it to the studio version on the flip side of the record.

In 1986, Wham! made their farewell concert appearance at London's Wembley Stadium. Elton John made an appearance in a clown suit to sing a song and then came back later to sing "Candle In The Wind" with George Michael.

Van Halen announce Sammy Hagar has left the group in 1996. The group’s planned recording with original vocalist David Lee Roth is a straw that breaks Hagar. Meanwhile, KISS begin their reunion tour in Detroit. It’s been 15 years since the original line-up performed together.

Radiohead’s landmark “OK Computer” enters the U.K. chart at #1 in 1997.

In 1997, the classic Pink Floyd album ‘Dark Side of the Moon’ spent its 1056th week on the US album chart. It was rumored at the time that if the album was played while watching The Wizard of Oz movie, and started exactly when the MGM lion roared the third time during the movie’s intro, very interesting connections could be made between the two. That is in the eye of the beholder, see for yourself.

George Harrison had an operation to remove a cancerous growth from his neck in 1997.

In 2005, U2 sued Lola Cashman, one of their former stylists, to regain possession of about $6,000 worth of memorabilia, which includes a cowboy hat and a pair of pants worn by Bono. The band claims Cashman wrongly appropriated the items during the band's 1987 Joshua Tree tour. "They sound like trivial items, they're really not," says Bono in a Dublin court. "They are important . . . to the group." The judge rules in U2's favor.

In 2007, "I Don't Wanna Stop" was Ozzy Osbourne's first #1 on Billboard's Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks. The song ended an eight-week run by Linkin Park's "What I've Done."

Daughtry's self-titled debut was certified triple platinum (3 million sales) by the Recording Industry Association of America in 2007. Released in November, '06, the album is the #5 all-time best digital seller while the songs, "It's Not Over" and "Home," are downloaded over 1 million times as digital tracks and ringtones.

Also in 2007, Benno Goldewijk, from Holland, and Spaniard Alfredo Pecina Matias were killed and two other men were injured during an accident dismantling the stage after a Rolling Stones concert in Madrid. Three of the workers fell 33ft from a metal structure and landed on a fourth. The Stones were currently on the European leg of their A Bigger Bang world tour.

In 2007, The Spice Girls confirmed they would reform for a world tour to take place in December 2007 and January 2008 with the original line-up who had not performed on stage since Ginger Spice Geri Halliwell quit in May 1998. The 11 dates announced included a London show on 15 December, eight days after the first date in Los Angeles. Other dates included Cologne, Madrid Beijing, Hong Kong, Sydney and Cape Town. The tour was being put together by Simon Fuller, whose 19 company masterminded the group's global success more than a decade ago.
