This Day in Music History
1964 : Barbra Streisand opens on Broadway in "Funny Girl".
1966 : The Strangeurs, featuring future Aerosmith frontman Steven Tallarico (later Steven Tyler), open for The Byrds at the Westchester County Center in White Plains, New York. The Strangeurs arrange for girls to sit in the front row and scream for them, but it's hardly necessary as the crowd goes nuts during their set, where they play six songs instead of their allotted two.
1966 : The photograph for the "butcher" cover for The Beatles' "American Yesterday And Today" album is taken.
1970 : Peter Yarrow of Peter, Paul and Mary is arrested in Washington DC for taking "immoral liberties" with a 14 year-old girl (he pleads guilty and spends three months in jail).
2008 : Guitarist Clint Lowery returns to Sevendust to replace Sonny Mayo.
2009 : Pink, Katy Perry, and Britney Spears are key winners at MTV Australia Awards. Pink takes home the night's top prize with "So What" being named Best Video. Katy Perry is honored as the Breakthrough Artist, and Britney Spears takes the award for Best Moves in her "Circus" music video. Even the host Pete Wentz didn't go home empty-handed. His group Fall Out Boy wins Best Rock Video for "I Don't Care". Despite key winners being absent, the show has its fair share of great performers. They include Best Aussie winner Jessica Mauboy, Kings Of Leon, and The Fray.
