Today in Music: August 13, 2010 - Run For Your Lives, its Friday the 13th!!


On this day in 1965, during a gig right here in Chicago, Dave Clark Five singer Mike Smith was pulled off the stage by adoring female admirers. In doing so, Smith suffered two broken ribs. These women are probably all grandmothers now and should be ASHAMED! :)

In 1966 "Revolver" goes to #1 in the US and UK!

In 1971, John Lennon arrived by plane in New York City from London. He would never return to England.

In 1988, The Cure singer Robert Smith marries longtime girlfriend Mary Poole.

On this date in 1994, members of Oasis and The Verve were arrested in Sweden for trashing a local bar and breaking into a church to steal communion wine. Classy!

On the very same day in the US, Woodstock '94 took place, with headliners Green Day, Nine Inch Nails, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Aerosmith.
