Today in Music: August 24, 2010

On this date in 1966, new Elektra Records signing The Doors began sessions for their debut album at Sunset Sound in Los Angeles.

On this same date in 1975, Queen began recording "Bohemian Rhapody". The tune would take three weeks, and over 180 overdubs, to complete.

In 1981, Mark David Chapman was sentenced to 20 years in prison for the murder of John Lennon.

In 1985, Huey Lewis and the News dominated the airwaves and the pop charts, hitting #1 with "Power Of Love", their theme from the movie "Back To The Future".

In 1996, Oasis singer Liam Gallagher failed to shop up for the band's taping of MTV Unplugged, forcing brother Noel to step in and handle vocal duties. Liam would show up later and watch the band from the audience.
