“To tell you the truth, I don’t remember much about the actual concert, but I’ll always remember the thrill of having Elvis place his picture on my back to sign it!” Elvis’ signature is the largest and boldest of the signatures on the reverse of this promotional Elvis photo.

While Elvis worked on Roustabout ; Variety reviewed  Kissin Cousins with:

“This new Elvis Presley concoction is a pretty dreary effort, one that certainly won’t replenish the popularity of Sir Swivel. Presley needs—and merits—more substantial material than this if his career is to continue to flourish as in the past. A few more like this and Cuhnel Parker may have to press the panic button.”



While Elvis worked on Spinout ; The Beatles

March 4, 1966: Lennon’s ‘Beatles Bigger Than Jesus’ Gaffe

John Lennon’s statement that The Beatles were ‘more popular than Jesus Christ’ was published in The London Evening Standard. “Christianity will go. It will vanish and shrink. We’re more popular then Jesus now; I don’t know which will go first, rock ‘n’ roll or Christianity. Jesus was alright, but his disciples were thick and ordinary.” Christian groups in the US were outraged resulting in some states burning Beatles records. Lennon later apologised. The English public didn’t raise an eyebrow over his remarks, but they caused controversy and protest in America


The Rolling Stones went to No.1 on the US singles chart with ‘Ruby Tuesday’, the group’s fourth US No.1 single. ‘Lets Spend The Night Together’ was the original A side but after radio stations banned the song ‘Tuesday’ became the A side.
