On Tour

1979. The Fakes appearance at Cumbernauld’s Leisure Centre is cancelled when janitors discover the band have smuggled beer into the building. Their support band, Razor Cuts are allowed to go on but Fakes’ manager Billy McChord kicks them off stage and forces his band on. He gets arrested, as does vocalist Johnny McGuire when he protests to police. While all this is going on, someone steals all the band’s hired gear.

In Court

1980. Bianca Jagger (32) appears at a short hearing in the Family Division of The High Court in London before Mr. Justice Evesham. The half-hour hearing, before the same judge that granted her divorce decree, from Mick Jagger, seven months ago, concerned a financial settlement. No details have been made available.

In Hospital (nearly!)

1997. Gavin Rossdale, is hit by a glass bottle whilst onstage with Bush at the California Expo Amphitheatre in Sacramento. The bottle caught the singer on the bridge of the nose was knocked to the stage. The gig was stopped while other members of the band helped the bleeding Rossdale off stage. He was treated by paramedics at the scene and once the bleeding had stopped, returned to the stage.  

On Television

1984. Aspel & Company (ITV, U.K.) 1. Guests include: Paul McCartney. This is the whole of the interview spread over two clips.


1993. Soul singer and songwriter, Arthur Alexander dies from a heart attack.



Ok. I’ve finally got it! I’ve no idea what I’ve been doing wrong but the video clips for the last three days haven’t been embedding properly. They are now. So, if you missed Iron Maiden or Evanescence at Rock Am Ring 2003 or Robert Gordon from Rockpalast in 1978 just scroll down the page.
