A-Ha went to No.1 on the US singles chart with ‘Take On Me’, making them the first Norwegian group to score a US No.1. The video for the song featured the band in a pencil-sketch animation method called rotoscoping, combined with live action which won six awards and was nominated for two others at the 1986 MTV Video Music Awards.


An American Rock critic calls Public Enemy’s  Rap effort “Bring The Noise” as “merely the greatest piece of Rock and Roll released in 1987.” The single is made up of melodyless rapping over sampled tracks by James Brown, Funkadelic, Marva Whitney, The Beastie Boys and others. For a record given such high praise, it failed to crack the US Top 40 and only reached #56 on the Billboard Hot R&B / Hip-Hop chart.


African-American jazz trumpeter Don Cherry died of liver failure aged 58. Developed the genre of world fusion music, incorporating influences of Middle Eastern, traditional African, and Indian music into his playing. Is the stepfather to singer’s musicians Neneh Cherry and Eagle-Eye Cherry.


A judge ruled that Robbie Williams had substantially copied lyrics on his song ‘Jesus Was A Camper Van’ from the 1961 Woody Guthrie song ‘I Am The Way’ and also used parts of a parody by Loudon Wainwright III. EMI Records had offered 25% royalties but the publishers Ludlow Music were demanding 50%

A survey concluded that the average person spent around £21,000 ($42,000) on music during their lives, the figure included the amount spent on Hi-Fi equipment, concerts and CDs. Music enthusiasts were likely to spend more than double that, parting with just over £44,000 ($89,000), in a lifetime, according to the survey conducted by UK company Prudential.


The ninth wave of pre-litigation letters were sent by the RIAA to administrators at 19 universities, as federal lawmakers continued to examine the state of copyright theft on college campuses nationwide.


A clump of hair believed to have been trimmed from Elvis Presley’s head when he joined the US Army in 1958 sold for $15,000 (£9,200) at an auction in Chicago, America. Other items sold belonging to Presley included a shirt which sold for $52,000 (£32,000), a set of concert-used handkerchiefs, $732 (£450) and photos from the reception of Presley’s 1967 wedding to Priscilla, sold for nearly $6,000 (£3,700).

2010 Actor: Granddaughter Riley Keough


Elton John described today’s songwriters as “pretty awful”, Pop music as “uninspiring” and talent shows like American Idol as “boring” in an interview with UK Radio Times magazine.


At the involuntary manslaughter trial of Dr Conrad Murray, Dr Steven Shafer testified that it would have been impossible for Michael Jackson to have self-administered a lethal dose of the sedative propofol. He later said of Dr Murray’s delay in calling 911: “I almost don’t know what to say. That is so completely and utterly inexcusable.”

Coldplay released their fifth studio album ‘Mylo Xyloto’ which charted at No.1 in thirty-four countries. In the UK ‘Mylo Xyloto’ became Coldplay’s fifth album to debut at No.1 and became the group’s third to debut at No.1 on the US Billboard 200.
