This Day in Showbiz History… January 10

rodsIt was on this day in 2009 that Black Eyed Peas singer Fergie (then aged 33) married actor Josh Duhamel (then 36) at Church Estate Vineyards in Malibu, California.

Sticking with music, today marks the birthdays of Rod Stewart (pictured) who turns 72. Donald Fagen of Steely Dan turns 69 today and Pat Benatar turns 64. David Bowie died on this day last year, aged 69.

On this day in 1952, the Cecil B DeMille movie, The Greatest Show on Earth, premiered in New York before it went on to take the 1953 Oscar for best picture. It starred James Stewart and Charlton Heston.

On this day in 1973, Little Jimmy Osmond was crowning the British singles chart with Long Haired Lover From Liverpool, a song that spent five weeks at No 1, having becoming
the country’s Christmas No 1.

Just saying…
