On this day
1998: Working in London with Rollo, Neil and Chris finish mixing 'Boy Strange.'
2003: In their second appearance on Graham Norton's U.K. television show, the Boys not only perform but, unlike their previous appearance, spend some time talking with the host. Incidentally, Norton introduces them while dressed as a giant hamster.
2009: Neil and Chris attend the premiere in London of the film Nowhere Boy, which dramatizes the pre-fame years of John Lennon, focusing on his relationships with his mother Julia and Aunt Mimi. It's the directorial debut of the Boys' friend and occasional collaborator Sam Taylor-Wood.

Lyric of the day
I'm not scared
Baby, I don't care
I'd go anywhere
Baby, I'm not scared
I'm not scared
No, I'm not scared
From I'm not scared
