A settlement has been reached between Soundgarden and Chris Cornell’s estate and we will see the release of the band's final recordings.
In the History of Rock in 1970 – Norman Greenbaum’s “Spirit In The Sky” tops out at number 3 on the Billboard Hot 100, behind “ABC” by The Jackson 5 and The Beatles’ “Let It Be”.
In 1981 – Yes temporarily split up when bassist Chris Squire and drummer Alan White left the group to rehearse with Robert Plant and Jimmy Page. The intended supergroup never got off the ground and Yes would reform and release the number one single, “Owner of a Lonely Heart”.
And in 2015 – 74-year-old Ringo Starr was inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame, becoming the last of The Beatles to receive that honor. Since the band's break-up in 1970, he had released 18 solo studio albums, including his latest, "Postcards From Paradise" earlier this month. Also inducted into The Hall were Bill Whithers, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Lou Reed, Joan Jett And The Blackhearts, The Paul Butterfield Blues Band, The 5 Royals and Green Day.
