Music: Essence of the Soul Around the Globe
1975 - David Bowie announced his second career retirement, saying, "I've rocked my roll. It's a boring dead end, there will be no more rock 'n' roll records from me." One of Bowie's best-known songs is 'Changes', originally released on the album Hunky Dory in December 1971 and as a single in January 1972. The lyrics are often seen as a manifesto for his chameleonic personality, the frequent change of the world today, and frequent reinventions of his musical style throughout the 1970s. This single is cited as David Bowie's official North American debut, despite the fact that the song "The Man Who Sold the World" was released in North America two years prior. This is the last song Bowie performed live on stage before his retirement from live performances at the end of 2006.
1989 - Two DJ's on Los Angeles station KLOS asked what ever happened to David Cassidy. The singer called the station up and the presenters invited him onto the show. David played three songs live on air and was subsequently signed by a new record label. David Cassidy has been recording albums since 1970. His career is most notable for his solo music and his recordings with The Partridge Family.
Happy 64th birthday, David Cassidy!
