It was “car buy day” for Elvis. Elvis purchased two Lincolns and a Cadillac for Jerry Kennedy, Ron Pietrafeso and police surgeon Gerald Starkey, along with Cadillacs for Linda Thompson and Joe Esposito’s girlfriend, Shirley Dieu. In all the bill comes to $70,000.
David Bowie released his eleventh studio album Low, the first of three collaborations with Brian Eno termed the “Berlin Trilogy”. The track ‘Sound and Vision’ was released as a single and used by the BBC in the UK on trailers at the time, providing much needed exposure, as Bowie opted to do nothing to promote the single himself, and helped the song reach No.3 on the UK charts.
Elvis, Ginger and Rosemary returned to Memphis.

The Sex Pistols played their last concert before breaking up. The show was in San Francisco, CA.


Paul McCartney was at No.1 on the UK singles chart with ‘Pipes Of Peace.’ With this release McCartney made chart history by becoming the first artist to have a No.1 in a group, (The Beatles), in a duo, (with Stevie Wonder) in a trio, (with Wings) and as a solo artist.


Paul McCartney released his album “Back In The U.S.S.R.” exclusively in Russia.

A $100,000 (£58,823) statue honouring the late punk guitarist Johnny Ramone was unveiled by his widow Linda at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery. Johnny died from prostate cancer in September 2004 at the age of 55. Hundreds turned out for the ceremony, including Tommy Ramone the only surviving band member. Dee Dee Ramone died of a drugs overdose in 2002 and Joey died in 2001 of lymphatic cancer.



Amy Winehouse started a two week run at No.1 on the UK album chart with ‘Back To Black’. The album has sold over 3.58 million copies in the UK alone, becoming the UK’s second best-selling album of the 21st century. Worldwide, the album has sold over 20 million copies.


The BBC admitted coverage of the launch of U2’s album No Line On The Horizon in 2009 went too far – giving “undue prominence” to the band. RadioCentre, the trade body for commercial radio companies, had made a formal complaint over the coverage saying the BBC had given U2 “the sort of publicity money can’t buy”.
