With the news of the passing of Aretha Franklin earlier today, "The Queen of Soul" joined other heavenly royalty and American pop culture icons who also died on this same date.

It was also 41 years ago today, a Tuesday, that "The King of Rock and Roll" Elvis Presley died. He was 42.

It gets more than coincidental after that.
