Chuck Berry was at No.1 on the UK singles chart with ‘My Ding a-Ling’, his only UK No.1. The song was originally recorded by Dave Bartholomew in 1952.

The Wake and Aftermath

1982 Elvis Presley Enterprises/Graceland Tourism


Paul McCartney, U2’s Bono and Adam Clayton, David Bowie, Phil Collins, Sting, Boy George and a bunch of other members of big-name ‘80s bands headed into a London studio to record the benefit single “Do They Know It’s Christmas.”

It was a huge hit, and spawned many others – Canada’s “Tears are not Enough” and in America the “We are the World” along with the County Music “We’re all One Family” and Heavy Metal “We’re Stars”.

They all raised money and awareness and had a negative impact in Africa, going into government corruption rather than helping any communities.


For the first time in Billboard chart history, the top three spots are occupied by female artists. #1 is Cyndi Lauper’s “True Colors”, #2 is Tina Turner with “Typical Male” and #3 is Janet Jackson’s “When I Think Of You”.


The Bodyguard, opened nation-wide featuring Whitney Houston and Kevin Costner. The film which was Houston’s acting debut was written by Lawrence Kasdan in the 1970s, originally as a vehicle for Steve McQueen and Diana Ross. It became the second-highest-grossing film worldwide in 1992 with the soundtrack becoming the best-selling soundtrack of all time, selling more than 42 million copies worldwide.


Whitney Houston went to No.1 on the US singles chart with ‘Exhale (Shoop Shoop)’, written by Babyface and taken from the film ‘Waiting To Exhale’, it gave Whitney her 11th US No.1.


A statue in Montreux, Switzerland by sculptor Irena Sedlecka was erected as a tribute to Freddie Mercury. Standing almost 10 feet (3 metres) high overlooking Lake Geneva it was unveiled by Freddie’s father and Montserrat Caballé, with bandmates Brian May and Roger Taylor also in attendance.


The Beatles‘ album simply titled “1”, a collection of their UK and US chart toppers, reaches number one in Great Britain. It will top the US chart a week later and will become the best selling album in a total of 28 countries worldwide.


Nicolas Cage filed for a divorce from Lisa Marie Presley citing irreconcilable differences. The two had been married four months before.

2003 Recording Artist: Daughter Lisa Marie Presley


Madonna achieved her sixth number one on the US album charts with ‘Confessions on a Dance Floor’ her third consecutive US album chart topper. The album went to No.1 in 40 countries setting a new record. The Beatles previously held this record when The Beatles 1 went to No.1 in 36 countries in 2000.


Brian May joined Freddie Mercury’s 87-year-old mother Jer Bulsara in Feltham town centre, at a ceremony to unveil a plaque to the late singers memory. They were joined by over 2,000 fans from as far as Japan and Australia who descended on the Centre, in Feltham High Street in England. The plague reads: “Freddie Mercury – musician, singer and songwriter” along with the dates he lived in Feltham, between 1964 and 1968.
