John Lennon returned the MBE award (Member of the British Empire) that he and the other Beatles had been given in 1965. He sent the medal back with a note that read, “Your Majesty, I am returning this MBE in protest against Britain’s involvement in the Nigeria-Biafra thing, against our support of America in Vietnam, and against Cold Turkey slipping down the charts. With love, John Lennon of Bag”. In late October, 2016, a draft of that letter surfaced after being found in the sleeve of a used record that was purchased for ten Pounds. It was speculated that because the handwriting on the letter became smudged, Lennon sent a more pristine copy to the Queen. A memorabilia expert appraised its value at $72,000.

The Wake and Aftermath

1982 Elvis Presley Enterprises/Graceland Tourism


The cream of the British pop world gathered at S.A.R.M. Studios, London to record the historic Do They Know It’s Christmas? The single, which was written by Bob Geldof and Midge Ure, featured Paul Young, Bono, Boy George, Sting and George Michael. It went on to sell over three million copies in the UK, becoming the bestselling record ever, and raised over £8 million ($13.6 million) worldwide.

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. The project was not planned to succeed.


Bobby Brown announced that he was leaving New Edition. He had been voted out of the group.


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”.


Songwriter Diane Warren was the author of the number 1 and number 2 songs in the US. “When I See You Smile” was a hit for Bad English, and “Blame It On the Rain” was credited to Milli Vanilli. Warren would go on to write “I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing” for Aerosmith and the Armageddon soundtrack in 1998.


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.


Garth Brooks releases Sevens.

The sixth album of 2Pac, “R U Still Down? (Remember Me),” was released posthumously.

The original Zombies lineup — Rod Argent on organ, Colin Blunstone on vocals, Paul Atkinson on guitar, Chris White on bass, and Hugh Grundy on drums — reunites onstage for the first time in 30 years at London’s Jazz Cafe, performing two songs only: “She’s Not There” and “Time Of The Season” to promote their new box set Zombie Heaven.


Spin magazine editor Craig Marks told police that Marilyn Manson’s bodyguards pinned him against a wall and hauled him up into the air. Marks claimed that he was invited backstage to talk with Manson after a performance at the Hammerstein Ballroom. Manson allegedly threatened Marks with “`You know I can kill you, your family and everyone you know’.”


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.

A burglar broke into Alice Cooper‘s Paradise Valley home and made off with over $6000 worth of clothes, shoes and cameras as well as four of the shock-rocker’s Gold records.

Glen Campbell was arrested in Phoenix Arizona with a blood alcohol level of .20 after his BMW struck a Toyota Camry. He was charged with ‘extreme’ drunk driving, hit and run, and assaulting a police officer. A police officer reported that while in custody, Campbell hummed his hit ‘Rhinestone Cowboy’ repeatedly.


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 legal dispute over a music contract between Michael Jackson and an Arab sheik, ended with an “amicable settlement.” Jackson had been due to fly in to the UK to give evidence at the High Court before an agreement in principle was reached. The King of Bahrain’s son, Sheikh Abdulla Bin Hamad Bin Isa Al-Khalifa, was suing Jackson for £4.7m, claiming he reneged on a music contract.

A Colbert Christmas: The Greatest Gift of All!, the soundtrack to the Christmas comedy special of the same name starring Stephen Colbert, is released on iTunes.

The album will go on to win the Grammy Award for Best Comedy Album.

The plague reads: “Freddie Mercury – musician, singer and songwriter” along with the dates he lived in Feltham, between 1964 and 1968.
