This Week in Music – May 29th
This week in music: 1997 was when we lost Jeff Buckley due to a drowning accident in Wolf River Harbor, in Memphis Tennessee.
His rendition of Hallelujah will always remind us of such a precious voice gone too soon. He was only 30 years of age at the time of his death.
Happy birthday goes out to the older Oasis brother Noel Gallagher, who turns 52 today.
If you haven’t checked out his new band entitled Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, I highly recommend you do so.
Has there been a longer successful marriage than Dolly Parton and hubby Carl Dean?
These two were married on this date back in 1966 and their marriage is still going strong!

In 1967, The Beatles possibly released the greatest masterpiece of their careers. Sergeant Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band was released in America and was definitely more experimental than any of their previous releases.
If you haven’t heard this album before, I highly recommend just lying down in a dark room and letting this album play start to finish.
I’m Wayne Brady B*tch!! I know he is mostly known for his acting, but this guy for sure has a golden voice.
Happy Birthday Wayne. Looking good at 47!
It was on this date in 1987 where the BBC banned the George Michael’s song, I Want Your Sex.
This is just one of many songs that the BBC has banned over the years due to various reasons.
This song was deemed too sexually suggestive. Not exactly sure where they got that idea…
Superfly singer Curtis Mayfield would have been 77 years old.
He passed away in 1999 due to complications from type 2 diabetes.
