The 101 number one song of the day was a one hit wonder by a guy who, in actuality, had a whole string of hits. How can that be?
John Lennon‘s Quarry Bank High School detention sheets are going under the hammer later this month, according to The New York Times. The sheets, which were found years later just prior to being destroyed, are being auctioned on November 22nd by England’s TracksAuction.com. The two pages from the detention sheets cover the periods between May 19th and June 23rd, 1955 and November 25th, 1955 through February 13th, 1956. Each page is expected to sell for up to $4,800. Among the various infractions Lennon was reprimanded for include being a “nuisance,” “chewing in class,” “making noise,” “repeated misconduct,” making “silly noises in an examination,” “sabotage,” “Idleness,” and “just no interest whatsoever.”
In a case of “we’ll believe it when we see it,” ABBA‘s Agnetha Faltskog says that plans are underway for some type of 40th anniversary reunion by the ’70s pop sensation, according to Vintage Vinyl News.

David Crosby is releasing his first new solo album in over 20 years on January 28th, called, Croz. The album was co-produced by Crosby’s son keyboardist James Raymond and Daniel Garcia. That same day, Crosby will kick off a five city, dozen date tour over three nights on January 28th at Manhattan’s City Winery. The tour — which will take in stops in Vienna, Virginia; Chicago; and San Francisco — wraps on February 25th during the third night of Crosby’s stand at L.A.’s legendary Troubadour club — the same venue he first met his Byrds co-founders Roger McGuinn and Gene Clark back in 1964. Crosby’s setlist will reach back to his Byrds days up through the present.
But get a load of Toronto’s top guy’s ”excuse” for smoking crack:
Following the massive success of Stevie Nicks‘ 1983 hit “Stand Back” — featuring Prince on keyboards — Nicks says he offered her “Purple Rain” to record. Nicks, who scored a Top Five hit with “Stand Back,” was actually inspired by Prince’s 1983 smash “Little Red Corvette.” Coincidently, it was Prince’s dynamic keyboard work that helped “Stand Back” become an instant classic. Nicks spoke about the “Purple Rain” demo Prince offered her: “I’ve still got it — with the whole instrumental track and a little bit of Prince singing, ‘Can’t get over that feeling,’ or something. I told him, ‘Prince, I’ve listened to this a hundred times but I wouldn’t know where to start. It’s a movie, it’s epic. The olive branch of him giving me that cassette was huge, but I think he would have liked a romance with me, too.” Although no romance bloomed between the diminutive pair, Nicks remained, “flattered” by his efforts.

Cher has admitted that she doesn’t think she’s qualified to be a judge on Dancing with the Stars. According to E!, Cher said, “I’m so not qualified to be judging on a technical basis because I don’t know anything about ballroom dancing. I just don’t want to be responsible for someone getting a different mark than a professional would give them. So I am a little worried about that part.”
She went on reveal that she may shy away from competing on DWTS because of a long-term foot injury. Cher added, “I took [the cast] off after two weeks and started dancing on it immediately because I had to be in Las Vegas. I’ve just been dancing on it all these years, but year by year, it’s gotten worse.”
