Today in Music History for July 26:

In 1938, R&B singer-songwriter Bobby Hebb, who wrote and recorded the 1966 pop classic "Sunny," was born to blind parents in Nashville, Tenn. At the height of "Sunny" popularity, he toured with "The Beatles." In the 1950s, he played and danced with Roy Acuff’s country band called "The Smoky Mountain Boys" and became one of the first black musicians to perform on the Grand Ole Opry show. In 1971, Lou Rawls won a Grammy award for "A Natural Man," written by Hebb and Sandy Baron. In 2004, Broadcast Music Inc. honoured Hebb for six million airings of "Sunny." He died of lung cancer on Aug. 3, 2010.

In 1943, lead singer Mick Jagger of "The Rolling Stones" was born in Dartford, England. "The Stones" began billing themselves as the greatest rock 'n' roll band in the world in the late '60s, and few denied the potency of their blend of blues, R&B and teen rock. Mick Jagger's duet with Tina Turner was one of the highlights of the 1985 Live-Aid concerts. Jagger received a knighthood in 2002.

In 1943, Gene Autry, the world's most famous singing cowboy, joined the U.S. Army Air Corps. Autry flew cargo and supply planes over enemy territory in the Middle and Far East.

In 1949, Roger Taylor, drummer and founding member of "Queen," was born in Norfolk, England. Taylor founded "Queen" in 1971 with Brian May, Freddie Mercury and John Deacon. "Queen's" combination of glitzy stage shows, heavy metal and vocal harmonies appealed to both teenyboppers and progressive rock fans.
