Guy Fawkes is caught red-handed, Susan B. Anthony votes, George Foreman becomes the oldest heavyweight boxing champion ever, Saddam Hussein is sentenced to death, and tragedy strikes Fort Hood, all on this day.
2003: Singer-songwriter Bobby Hatfield, best known as one half of the blue-eyed soul duo the Righteous Brothers, dies in his sleep at age 63 in Kalamazoo, Michigan, hours before a scheduled Righteous Brothers concert. In January 2004, a toxicology report concluded that a cocaine overdose led to a fatal heart attack. Hatfield and singing partner Bill Medley were best known for hits such as "Little Latin Lupe Lu," "You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin'," "(You're My) Soul and Inspiration" and "Unchained Melody." The Righteous Brothers were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in March 2003.
