Anna Mae Bullock was born today in 1939, making her 80 today, though we know her better as Tina Turner. She became famous as one half of a duo with her then-husband Ike Turner before reinventing herself as a solo performer. She is now one of the best-selling recording artists of all time, is often referred to as The Queen of Rock 'n' Roll, and has sold more than 200 million records worldwide.

1993 Steppenwolf drummer Jerry Edmonton was killed in a car crash not far from his Santa Barbara, California home, he was 47. Steppenwolf had the 1969 US No.2 & UK No.30 single 'Born To Be Wild'.

2013 It was reported that George Harrison's sister was living in a pre-fabricated home and "struggling for money" since her allowance from The Beatles star's estate was cut off about a year after he died. 82-year-old Louise Harrison admitted that she had no access to her brother's multi-million dollar fortune and was cash-poor living in rural Missouri. She never challenged her brother's estate, adding "I don't care about the money, it's been over ten years and I haven't made any ripples."

1936 Jazz drummer Roy McCurdy (of Blood, Sweat & Tears) is born in Rochester, New York.

1948 Little River Band guitarist Beeb Birtles is born Gerard Bertelkamp in Amsterdam, Netherlands.

1962 Matt Cameron (drummer for Pearl Jam, Soundgarden) is born in San Diego, California.

1974 John Lennon makes his last-ever concert appearance when he joins Elton John on stage at Madison Square Garden, reciprocating for Elton's appearance on "Whatever Gets You Thru The Night" and making good on a bet he lost: Elton wagered that "Whatever Gets You Thru The Night" would hit #1 in the US, and when it did, Lennon owed the appearance. The pair perform that song and also do The Beatles' "I Saw Her Standing There" and "Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds."

2020 AC/DC show they still have plenty of spark as their album Power Up surges to #1 in America.
