The Charlotte Observer reported the following incident in its June 29, 1956, edition. It seems Elvis was sitting in his “baby blue” limousine after his Thursday night show in Charleston, South Carolina, when a girl reporter for The News and Courier approached his car to take a picture. Apparently, she was after a closeup. She was so close that Elvis was able to stick his head out and bite her hand.

Many girls probably would have enjoyed being bitten by Elvis. This reporter was not one of them. “Hey, you big bruiser, what’s the idea?” she asked him. “You trying to make like Marlon Brando or something.”

“I was only being friendly, like a little puppy dog,” Elvis responded.

The reporter told Elvis it was the first time anyone had ever bitten her as a sign of friendship. “Lady, if you want to get ahead, you gotta be different,” explained Elvis. It was a different era. No lawsuit was filed.

James Brown’s first album, Live at the Apollo, debuted on the pop charts, eventually rising to #2. Despite enormous chart success, he never had a #1 pop album of forty-nine albums hit the pop charts through 1988.  Live would remain his all-time biggest success and would be considered a milestone in the development of live albums for years to come.

Del Shannon‘s cover version of the Beatles’ “From Me To You” became the first song written by John Lennon and Paul McCartney to appear on the American charts, where it would stay for four weeks, reaching #77. The Beatles’ rendition climbed only to #116. The title of the song was inspired from a letters column called From You To Us that ran in the popular British music newspaper, The New Musical Express.

The Surfaris rode the wave from 86 to #51 with their great instrumental “Wipe Out”.

“Surf City” crashed the Top 10 for Jan & Dean, moving from 20 to 10.

The U.S. Army grants Jimi Hendrix an honorable discharge on the basis of unsuitability. A month earlier his platoon sergeant filed a report that said: “He has no interest whatsoever in the Army…. It is my opinion that Private Hendrix will never come up to the standards required of a soldier. I feel that the military service will benefit if he is discharged as soon as possible.” Hendrix would later falsely claim that he had received a medical discharge after breaking his ankle during his 26th parachute jump.

Kennedy Stadium, until it was realized that the satellite link-up would cause a half-second delay that would make this impossible unless either Bowie or Jagger mimed their contribution, something neither artist was willing to do.
The Cooper-Hewitt Museum, a part of the Smithsonian Institute, auctions off John Lennon’s psychedelic-painted 1965 Rolls-Royce Phantom V at Sotheby’s in New York.

Meeting at a London pub, a group of record label executives decide to use the term “World Music” to promote their international artists. This new designation becomes a section in many record stores and makes it much easier to classify artists that don’t fit traditional genres.
Blogger Nina Notes – a lot of Elvis’s 1960s soundtracks would qualify as this genre, Hawaii ones especially, and Fun in Acapulco.
