This Day In Music History … (from Associated Press)

In 1957, Buddy Holly and the Crickets recorded “That’ll Be the Day” at Norman Petty’s studio in Clovis, New Mexico, after weeks of rehearsal.

In 1985, director Peter Bogdanovich sued Universal Studios for $19 million in an unsuccessful effort to get Bruce Springsteen’s songs back into the score of “Mask.” Bogdanovich had cut the picture to fit Springsteen’s music, which Universal did not want to pay for the right to use. The studio had Bob Seger do replacement songs, which Bogdanovich called inappropriate.

In 1986, “We Are the World,” the charity anthem by an all-star rock choir, won four Grammy Awards, including song and record of the year. Lionel Richie and Michael Jackson wrote the song, which was recorded by 45 celebrities. The record raised more than $33 million for African famine relief.

Also on this date in 1993, Toy Caldwell, who formed The Marshall Tucker Band with his brother Tommy in 1971, was found dead in his home in Moore, South Carolina. He was 45.
