On August 24, 1975, Queen began recording “Bohemian Rhapsody” at Rockfield Studios. Mercury, May, and Taylor sang their parts for 10-12 hours a day over a three-week period, resulting in 180 separate overdubs. The six-minute suite has since been inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame and was named the most-streamed song of the 20th century.

On August 24, 1981, Mark Chapman received a prison sentence of 20 years for the murder of John Lennon. Chapman shot Lennon five times at close range in New York City, hours after the former Beatle had autographed a copy of Double Fantasy for him.
