    I'll add it to the list of "standing entries" which could currently be:

    • Ozzy was high,
    • Keef died, and
    • Keith Moon blew up a dunny somewhere.

    • 1957 - Buddy Knox (born in 1933 in Happy, Texas [what a great name for a town]) became the first artist in the Rock 'n' Roll era to write his own number one hit when 'Party Doll' topped the US chart.



    • 1985 - Phil Collins starts a two week run at the top of the US chart with "One More Night". The song is from his album No Jacket Required, which was named after an incident at The Pump Room (a Chicago restaurant). Collins, entering the restaurant with Robert Plant, was denied admittance because he did not meet the restaurant's dress code of "jacket required" for dinner while Plant was allowed in. Collins was wearing a jacket and argued about it. The maître d' argued that the jacket was not "proper". Collins subsequently slammed the restaurant every chance he could in interviews and by naming this record after the incident. The management of the restaurant later sent him a complimentary sport coat and an apology letter, stating that he could come to the restaurant wearing whatever he wanted.




    • 2013 - Phil Ramone dies aged 79. He produced (many things, including) this:




    • 2020 - Bill Withers dies aged 81
