A logo! A trio! A tragedy…

7/16/1900 – (114 years ago today!!!) One of the most famous logo’s in all of American history was registered at the U.S. Patent Office: “His Master’s Voice”, the logo of the Victor Recording Company and later RCA Victor, which shows the dog “Nipper” looking into the horn of a grammophone. You’ll see it at the end of this 60-second TV commercial for 1950′s RCA recording artists, such as Lena Horne and Perry Como. Truly classic!

7/16/1966 – (48 years ago today) Jack Bruce, Ginger Baker and Eric Clapton form one of the most legendary rock groups ever: Cream! Unbelievably, their career lasted just two years, during which they only recorded a total of seven proper studio album sides! Their influence is still being felt today. Amazing! This is a truly weird black & white TV clip of Cream from some foreign land, well worth it once you hit the :33 sec. mark:

 

7/16/1981 – (33 years ago today) His biggest hits were inescapable during the 1970′s:  “Taxi”, “W-O-L-D’” and the No. 1 “Cat’s In The Cradle”: singer-songwriter Harry Chapin was killed while driving on a New York expressway when his car was hit from behind by a tractor-trailer causing the gas tank to explode. Harry was only 38 years old.
