  11. On the day Barack Obama (August 4, 1961) was born Bobby Lewis was at #1 with 'Tossin’ And Turnin’ Obama shares his birthday with Louis Armstrong who had the 1968 UK No.1 single 'What A Wonderful World.' On the day Sarah Palin was born, The Beatles were at #1 with 'I Want To Hold Your Hand'. And on that day (Feb 11th 1964), The Beatles made their live concert debut in the US at the Washington Coliseum. Over 350 police surrounded the stage to keep the 8,000 plus screaming fans in control. One police officer who found the noise so loud, stuck a bullet in each ear as ear plugs.
  12. OK, enough is enough, who do you think should stop making a fool of themselves and pack it all in! 'Start Me Up' sang Mick Jagger in 1981, (he's now 65).

Is Elton John 'Still Standing?' 'Yeah, I hope I die before I get old' sang The Who. To vote for who you think should retire go to http://www.thisdayinmusic.com
