Vernon Presley had a heart attack at his home and was admitted to the hospital, where he recuperated in a room next to Elvis’.
Another recording session at Graceland, from 9.00 p.m. to 2.00 p.m. the next day. At the beginning there were many starts and stops again. At last Elvis was engaged when he cut For The Heart and performed a truly heartfelt version of Hurt, inspired by the 1954 original.
February 5, 1977
An unknown singer named Mary MacGregor had the top tune in the US with “Torn Between Two Lovers”, a song that she would later say that she has never liked. Peter Yarrow of Peter, Paul And Mary co-wrote the song and chose MacGregor to sing it over several other established artists. The record reached #4 in the UK.
Barbra Streisand led the way on the Adult chart for a fourth week with “Evergreen”.
The Eagles returned to #1 on the Album chart with Hotel California.  The Soundtrack to “A Star Is Born” was second – the movie Elvis turned down.
1983
Men At Work spent an amazing 13th week at #1 on the Album chart with Business As Usual.
Toto’s great song “Africa” reached #1.  That ended a three-week run for Australia’s Men At Work with “Down Under”.
1994
Mariah Carey remained at #1 on the Album chart for a sixth week with Music Box.
1998
Thirty-four years after his first appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show launched his national recognition, Stevie Wonder performed for President Bill Clinton and Britain’s Prime Minister Tony Blair at the White House.
Elton John performed as well.
1999
The members of ‘N Sync appeared on Sabrina the Teenage Witch on television.
2005
Paul McCartney performed during the half-time show at Superbowl XXXIX (39) in Jacksonville Florida and pocketed a cool $3.3 million for his 12 minute performance. That translates into $278,000 per minute. Sir Paul played in front of an estimated TV audience of one billion and sang the Beatles songs “Drive My Car”, “Get Back” and “Hey Jude”, plus his Bond theme song “Live and Let Die”.
2006
The Rolling Stones played three songs during the half-time show of The Super Bowl in Detroit. After the event, The Stones expressed their displeasure over having Mick Jagger’s microphone turned down during the song “Start Me Up”. The line “You make a dead man come” was cut short and a barnyard reference to “cocks” in the new song “Rough Justice” also disappeared.
Barry Manilow topped the US album charts for the first time in nearly 29 years when his “Greatest Songs of the Fifties” sold 156,000 copies during the first week of February.
2008
The Indian guru Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, who introduced The Beatles to ancient Hindu meditation methods, died in his sleep at his home in the Netherlands. He was 91.
