Pete Townshend of The Who caused a stir at Memphis International Airport. He was overheard saying “Tommy” seems to be ‘going down a bomb’, meaning the group’s song “Tommy” was a hit. Officials however, only heard the term ‘bomb’ and police and FBI reacted.

 The group Bread, led by David Gates, gave their final concert in Salt Lake City. A truck accident earlier in the day had destroyed the band’s equipment, so they had to play with borrowed instruments and amps.

 1981

Just after signing a multi-album contract with Warner Brothers, the Pop group Steely Dan announced they were breaking up. Donald Fagan and Walter Becker, the driving forces behind the band, said their fourteen year musical partnership was over.
