“Right now I’d like to get married, but the older I get, the more choosy I become. To me right now the most desirable characteristics in a girl are a sense of humor, understanding and loyalty. I’ve dated quite a few girls, and women with those qualities are mighty hard to find, especially understanding.” — Elvis quote in Parade magazine.

The people in the cheaper seats clap your hands and the rest of you, if you’d just rattle your jewellery, we’d like to sing a song called Twist and Shout.” John would later say “I was fantastically nervous, but I wanted to rebel a bit and that was the best I could do.”

Most likely it was in this week that Elvis bought a house for Jerry Schilling, while Jerry was in Las Vegas. At one time Elvis told Jerry the reason: “Jerry, you know why I bought you this home? I know I drove all those other guys crazy buying you this house, but your mother died when you were a year old, and you never had a home, and I wanted to be the one to give it to you.”
Even though he was the one who was the most opposed to touring in the final years of The Beatles, George Harrison became the first to set out on a solo tour when he appeared in Vancouver, Canada with Billy Preston.
