Today In Music...April 27

(Today's birthday boy, Patrick Stump of Fall Out Boy)

In 1974, the band Chicago scores their third #1 album with VII. What made this all the more impressive was the fact that it was a double-album. It featured three Top 10 single, "(I've Been) Searchin' So Long", "Call On Me", and "Wishing You Were Here". Little known fact: The Pointer Sisters sing backing vocals on the album's last track, "Skinny Boy". Beach Boys members Carl Wilson, Al Jardine, and Dennis Wilson sing backing vocals on "Call On Me".

In 1981, Ringo Starr married Barbara Bach in a ceremony attended by Paul McCartney and George Harrison.
