During the 1970s, Bonnie Lynn Raitt released a series of roots-influenced
albums that incorporated elements of
blues, rock, folk and country. In 1989,
after several years of critical acclaim but little commercial success, she had
a major hit with the album Nick of Time. The following two albums, Luck of
the Draw
(1991) and Longing in Their Hearts (1994), were also multimillion
sellers, generating several hit singles, including "
Something to Talk About",
"
Love Sneakin’ Up on You", and the ballad "I Can’t Make You Love Me"
(with
Bruce Hornsby on piano).

Raitt has received 10 Grammy Awards. She is listed as number 50 in
Rolling Stone‘s list of the "100 Greatest Singers of All Time" and
number 89 on the magazine’s list of the "100 Greatest Guitarists of
All Time.

On this day in 1968, the United States presidential election was the 46th quadrennial U.S. presidential election. The Republican nominee, former
Vice President Richard Nixon, defeated the Democratic nominee,
incumbent Vice President Hubert Humphrey.

Analysts have argued the election of 1968 was a major realigning election
as it permanently disrupted the New Deal Coalition that had dominated
presidential politics for 36 years.

Charles (Chuck) Edward Anderson Berry
(October 18, 1926 – March 18, 2017)

Chuck Berry was a singer and songwriter, and one
of the pioneers of rock and roll music. With songs
such as "Maybellene" (1955), "Roll Over Beethoven"
(1956), "Rock and Roll Music" (1957) and "Johnny B.
Goode
" (1958), Berry refined and developed rhythm
and blues
into the major elements that made rock
and roll distinctive. Writing lyrics that focused on
teen life and consumerism, and developing a music
style that included guitar solos and showmanship,
Berry was a major influence on subsequent rock
music. He was among the first musicians to be
inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on
its opening in 1986.
