UncUpdate On This Day Graphic

On this day in 1973, Fleetwood Mac's manager, Clifford Davis, took advantage of the group's first break from touring and recording by stealing their name and sending the fake Fleetwood Mac out on tour. When Mick Fleetwood found out what was happening, he sued Davis and assumed management of the band himself.

On this day in 1977, Fleetwood Mac's "You Make Loving Fun" peaked at #9 on the charts.

On this day in 1982, The Who performed one of their first farewell concerts at Toronto's Maple Leaf Gardens. Worried about never seeing one of the greatest rock bands in history again, many of us gullible fans purchased the concert on pay-per-view. Of course, 30 years later The Who still tour on a semi-regular basis.

On this day in 1983, The Pretenders released the song "Middle of the Road," which eventually topped out at #19 on the charts.

On this day in 1986, The Doobie Brothers reunited for the first time. Turns out that they got along so well during the benefit concert in Palo Alto, they've been rockin' down the highway ever since.

On this day in 1988, as U2's "Angel Of Harlem" entered the singles charts on its way to #14, Guns N' Roses' "Lies" compilation of an EP and various live tracks began a run to #2 and five million sold.

On this day in 2016, my old friend/co-worker Bob Coburn lost his long battle with cancer. I first met B.C. at WMET in Chicago, and first worked with the legendary KMET DJ at 95.5 KLOS in Los Angeles in October 1980. Our careers took many similar turns as we worked at L.A.'s KLSX and Arrow 93.1. The master communicator — who had some of the best ears for music I've ever known — was only 68. Rest in peace, B.C..
