6/27/1885 (131 years ago today) - Chichester Bell and Charles Tainter applied for a patent on their invention "The Grammophone". How could they know it would lead to records by Insane Clown Posse...

6/27/1970 (46 years ago today) - The Jackson Five start two weeks at No. 1 with the classic single "The Love You Save"; the year is just barely half-over and it is already their third consecutive chart-topper (actually, four-in-a-row counting 1969's "I Want You Back")!

"The Ox" had gone to bed that night with a stripper who awoke at 10 am to find him cold and unresponsive. The medical examination found that John's passing away was due to a cocaine-induced heart attack; he was 57 years old.
