Elvis was visited by his parents on the set of Loving You, where he performed Loving You and Got A Lot O’ Livin’ To Do in front of an audience. They were sitting quite plainly on the aisle, with Gladys clapping to the beat.
It was said that Elvis was never able to watch the film again after his mother’s death.

Elvis was supposed to report to United Artists in Hollywood for the start of production on Clambake. The Colonel realized it would be almost impossible to get Elvis away from his new ranch, so he had arranged for the cast insurance exam to take place at 5.30 p.m. at RCA’s Studio B in Nashville, where soundtrack recording was now scheduled to take place.
Elvis arrived in a rented Learjet and after discussing song selection for the film, recorded until 6.00 a.m. the next morning. It was obvious to all present that Elvis had little interest in the movie songs. Except for You Don’t Know Me, on which he expended 21 takes. However Elvis was still not satisfied with the result and would re-record the song later.
 February 21, 1968
Still at American, recording went on, but this time only from 7.30 until 10.30 p.m. and only 1 song and 1 instrumental track were completed.
February 21, 1970
Simon And Garfunkel‘s “Bridge Over Troubled Water” entered the UK album chart at number 1, where it would stay for 12 consecutive weeks. It would return to the top seven times, spending a total of 41 weeks there over the next two years. In the US, the LP spent 10 weeks at number 1 on the strength of three Top Ten singles and was the number 7 album of the decade in America.

 1981
Dolly Parton topped the Billboard Pop Chart with her own composition, “9 to 5”. The record reached #47 in the UK.
1982
Disc jockey Murray “The K” Kaufman died of cancer at the age of 60. Kaufman’s influence on Rock and Roll and its audience led the Beatles to seek him out when they first came to America in 1964. Kaufman’s friendship with the group gave him cause to start calling himself “The Fifth Beatle”, but that title was never bestowed upon him by any member of the group.
At the Beatles’ 1988 induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, George Harrison said that there were only two “fifth Beatles”: public relations manager Derek Taylor and road manager Neil Aspinall. In a 1997 BBC interview, Paul McCartney stated: “If anyone was the fifth Beatle, it was Brian Epstein.”
 1987
Ben E. King’s “Stand By Me” reached #1 in England fater being used in a commercial for Levi’s jeans. It was the third time the King classic had charted in Britain and the first time in almost twenty-six years. The #2 record at the time was Percy Sledge’s “When A Man Loves A Woman,” which not coincidentally was there due in great part to being in the same series of Levi’s commercials.
1990
Chuck Berry’s rock standard “Roll Over, Beethoven” was inducted into the National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences (NARAS) hall of Fame at the thirty-second annual Grammy Awards. As if that wasn’t enough of an accolade for the icon, his Chuck Berry—The Chess Box—earned Best Historical Album honors for its producer, Andy McKaie, of Universal Music. Also, John Lee Hooker’s duet with Bonnie Raitt won Best Traditional Blues Recording.
Milli Vanilli are awarded the Best New Artist Grammy. It would take until the following November for producer Frank Farian to confess that the duo of Fab Morvan and Rob Pilatus never actually sang a single note on their recordings, causing the award to be withdrawn.
 1992
The Four Tops and the Tempatations played at the Fox Theater in Detroit. What had started as a  one-off reunion for Motown’s twenty-fifth anniversary was so well received that the two groups began to tour together.
1998
Celine Dion went to No.1 on the UK singles chart with ‘My Heart Will Go On’. The song was the theme from the movie Titanic. The world’s best selling single of 1998.
2002
Elton John accused the music industry of exploiting young singers and dumping talented artists for manufactured group’s. He said ‘There are too many average and mediocre acts; it damages real talent getting airplay. It’s just fodder.’
2012
Five members of the Russian feminist punk rock group Pussy Riot staged a performance on the soleas of Moscow’s Cathedral of Christ the Savior where their actions were stopped by church security officials. By that evening, they had turned the performance into a music video entitled “Punk Prayer – Mother of God, Chase Putin Away!” The women said their protest was directed at the Orthodox Church leader’s support for Putin during his election campaign. The following month, three of the group members were arrested and charged with hooliganism and were were held in custody until their trial began in late July when the three members were convicted of “hooliganism motivated by religious hatred”, and each was sentenced to two years imprisonment.
