10/14/1957 (63 years ago today): Some radio stations banned the song because of its "overtly suggestive lyrics"; it's also the first U.S. No. 1 single for The Everly Brothers when "Wake Up Little Susie" hits the top of the chart. We say: One of the best sounding guitar riffs ever...

10/14/1971 (49 years ago today): Music publishing firm Arco Industries files a $500,000 lawsuit against Creedence Clearwater Revival and singer-songwriter John Fogerty, claiming that their track "Travelin' Band" contained "substantial material copied from Little Richard's 'Good Golly, Miss Molly'". The suit was eventually dropped. We say: "Narrow escape there, John". Compare 'em here; what do you think?

10/14/1946 - Happy Birthday to Moody Blues singer-songwriter-guitarist Justin Hayward, 74 years old today -- He certainly wrote the bands best, most legendary  stuff"Nights In White Satin", "Tuesday Afternoon", "Question", "Lovely To See You", "Never Comes The Day", "Your Wildest Dreams", as well as the first song to ever get played on BLM, "The Story In Your Eyes", they all still sound fantastic! We say: Justin's a really underrated talent, check out his excellent work on vocal and guitar...
