Following The Beatles’ break up George Harrison released the triple album “All Things Must Pass.” A brilliant album that turned out to be a career best.
1960's  Though Elvis Presley famously butchered his ballad “Are You Lonesome Night” in a late career filmed concert (a sad, moving and truly poignant moment), it was a chart topping song. 1961

Matt Cameron, Soundgarden’s drummer, is born in San Diego. 1962
1970's  George Harrison's “My Sweet Lord” and Elton John`s breakthrough ballad “Your Song” are released. 1970

John Lennon joins Elton John at the latter’s Madison Square Garden concert. The pair perform “Whatever Gets You Through The Night,” “Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds” and “I Saw Her Standing There.” The show is Lennon’s last concert appearance. 1974

1980's  Foreigner's ballad "Waiting For A Girl Like You" stalls at #2 on the U.S. chart. It’s kept out of the top spot by Olivia Newton-John’s "Physical." 1981

Oh, oh, I want some more. Tyler Glenn, the lead singer for Neon Trees, has a birthday. 1983

Audioslave's Chris Cornell files a lawsuit against his ex-wife and the manager of his previous group Soundgarden. The lawsuit charges Susan Silver with conspiring to divert the singer's earnings to his former bandmates, an action that apparently emanates, at least in part, "from the dissolution of their personal relationship." Cornell is seeks more than $1 million in damages. 2005

100 previously unseen photographs taken at a '72 Led Zeppelin concert in Sydney are on display for two days at the Lismore Regional Gallery in Lismore, Australia. 2005

Incubus unfurl the emotional "Light Grenades." According to guitarist Mike Einziger, singer Brandon Boyd put a lot of himself into the record. "He's always written a lot about relationships, but this record is very, very personal for him," says Einziger. Seems Boyd’s ‘05 break-up with model Carolyn Murphy took its toll. "Light Grenades," the band's first studio effort since ‘04's "A Crow Left Of The Murder," contains 13-tracks featuring the single "Anna Molly." "It's a total mess," continues Einziger. "It sounds like 13 different bands playing 13 different songs. That's kind of how all our records sound." 2006

"I think it's a beautiful day." That's what Mötley Crüe bassist Nikki Sixx says when he and his former wife Donna D'Errico reach a settlement in their divorce case. Sixx and the ex-Baywatch actress were married for 10 years. 2007

At #2 are Simon & Garfunkel, followed by Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler and Joe Perry, The Who’s Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey and The Kinks Ray and Dave Davies. It’s interesting that most of the major feuds are between the lead singer and guitarist. The legendary John Lennon - Paul McCartney - George Harrison rift (Ringo Starr was always the peacemaker) is #6. 2010

Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark has its first Broadway preview. With a score composed by U2’s Bono and The Edge, the long delayed, high tech show, the most expensive in Broadway history ($65 million), has several glitches and receives generally negative reviews. 2010
