6/2/1973 (44 years ago today) - Of course, it's Paul McCartney!: It wasn't his best stuff, but he still hit the the top spots on both the LP and singles charts on this date -- "Red Rose Speedway" was the No. 1 album (it did have "Big Barn Red" and "Get On The Right Thing", so Side One wasn't half-bad at all, really), and "My Love" started a four-week run as the No. 1 single (sappy, yes, but he really meant it too, so....).

6/2/1978 (39 years ago today) - Thin Lizzy released the double live classic set "Live And Dangerous", recorded during the "Johnny The Fox" and "Bad Reputation" tours in London (1976) and Philadelphia and Toronto (in 1977) -- Expert song selection and super-tight group finesse have made this one of the few live records to {quite frankly} sound even better with the passage of time -- Both PlanetRock.com and NME put it at No. 1 on their Greatest Live Albums Of All-Time lists (Rolling Stone ranked it at No. 46, Kerrang! at No. 50) -- You should already have this at home, you know... 

6/2/1989 (28 years ago today) - So, not one of his band mates asked him if he heard what happened to Jerry Lee Lewis...?: At age 53, original Rolling Stone bassist Bill Wyman "secretly" married 19-year-old Mandy Smith, a former model and pop singer -- Bill's 28-year-old son was Best Man; all other four Stones were in attendance -- The marriage {shockingly} lasted 17 months.
