Beatle tops Beatle -- Neil Diamond, drug addict -- Hey, this was one of the Eighties biggies, I forgot...

6/30/1973 (47 years ago today) - Weird coincidence, sort of: George Harrison goes to No. 1 on the singles chart with "Give Me Love (Give Me Peace On Earth)". Who did George replace for the top spot? Paul McCartney and "My Love", making this the one and only time that two ex-Beatles held both top two spots in America. Check out this really nice (and rare) 1991 live in Japan version:

6/23/1976 (44 years ago today) - They must have gotten a tip from somebody, somewhere...: Police raid the home of Neil Diamond searching for drugs. A-ha! They confiscate some marijuana all right, total amount: one ounce. Your tax dollars at work once again...

6/23/1984 (36 years ago today) - Take a deep breath, here's another one that's...inching ever so closer to being 40 years old?!?! Really?!?!: Huey Lewis And The News hit No. 1 on the album chart with "Sports" -- The group's fourth studio LP was the second highest best-selling album of 1984 spawning four Top 10 hits ("Heart And Soul", "I Want A New Drug", "The Heart Of Rock & Roll" and "If This Is It"), and a fifth that went Top 20 ("Walking On A Thin Line"), making that five out of a total of nine tracks on the record! -- A rather concise piece of pop rock: clocks in at 37:46, no frills, no duffers, slick and right to the point. Fact: it out sold Van Halen's "1984", ZZ Top's "Eliminator" and "Synchronicity" by The Police. In '84, there was only one album that sold more than Huey's: Michael Jackson's "Thriller", so there you have it...
