On this day in 2005, Baby Shambles singer Pete Doherty was thrown off a yacht as he was found smoking crack cocaine….nice one Pete! He was with then girlfriend, Kate Moss and were both asked to leave the party.

Although he is regarded by his fans as a fantastic musician and poet, Doherty has faced controversy throughout his time in the limelight over his repeated drug charges and is banned from living in London after he was found injecting heroin in his flat….oops!

In 1989, New Kids on The Block went in at Number 1 on the US Billboard chart with their song 'I'll Be Loving You Forever'. It was the band's first number 1 hit, only going in at number 5 in the UK singles chart.

Today is the 66th Birthday of english rock n roll and jazz guitarist Chris Spedding.
Spedding has been named as one of the UK's most versatile guitarists, tackling every style of rock and roll.
