Elvis Presley’s single “A Big Hunk O’ Love” hit #1 in the U.S. written by Aaron Schroeder and Sid Wyche, who also wrote “It’s Now or Never” and “Good Luck Charm”; both of which – like “A Big Hunk o’ Love” – were originally recorded by American rock and roll icon Elvis Presley. “A Big Hunk o’ Love” was released as a single on June 23, 1959[1] by RCA Victor and later topped the Billboard Hot 100 for two weeks.

The a-side spent two weeks at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 while the b-side peaked at #12.[2] The single was less successful on the Cashbox Top 100 with the a-side peaking at #2 and the b-side at #23.[4] On the UK Singles Chart the a-side peaked at #4, while the b-side did not appear on the chart.[5] The a-side also peaked at #10 on Billboard magazine’s R&B Singles chart

The song was revived by Presley in 1972 during his engagements at the Las Vegas Hilton in February 1972 and was used in his live shows until mid-1973. It was performed live for the last time on January 26, 1974. The song is included in the 1972 documentary Elvis On Tour and his 1973 show broadcast via satellite, Aloha from Hawaii.

Lennon said later that he was trying to say, “The way they (some fans) carry on, it’s like we’re more popular than Jesus Christ.” Maureen Cleave, the journalist who interviewed Lennon for the original article, tried to come to John’s rescue by saying, “John was certainly not comparing the Beatles to Christ. He was simply observing that, so weak was the state of Christianity, the Beatles was, to many people, better known.”

John explained, “If I had said television is more popular than Jesus, I might have got away with it, but I just happened to be talking to a friend and I used the words “Beatles” as a remote thing, not as what I think – as Beatles, as those other Beatles like other people see us … I’m not saying that we’re better or greater, or comparing us with Jesus Christ as a person or God as a thing or whatever it is. I just said what I said and it was wrong. Or it was taken wrong. And now it’s all this … I never meant it to be a lousy anti-religious thing. I apologize if that will make you happy. I still don’t know quite what I’ve done. I’ve tried to tell you what I did do but if you want me to apologize, if that will make you happy, then okay, I’m sorry.”

Disciples of cult leader Charles Manson entered the home of movie director Roman Polanski and brutally murdered Polanski’s wife, actress Sharon Tate, as well as director Voityck Frykowski, hair stylist Jay Sebring, student Steven Parent and coffee heiress Abigail Folger. The Elvis connection to this is that Memphis Mafia member, Larry Geller had worked for Jay Sebring in the hair dressing business.

During a North American tour Led Zeppelin appeared at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, California. Jethro Tull who opened for the band were at No.1 on the UK album chart with their second release ‘Stand Up’.

Elvis Presley’s single “Clean Up Your Own Back Yard” hit #35 in the U.S. Written by Mac Davis and Billy Strange it was released as a 7″ single in 1969 with “The Fair Is Moving On” on the B-side, but not featured on any studio album. It reached #35 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #21 on the UK Singles Chart. The song was from the soundtrack of the film The Trouble with Girls, and was later included on the budget RCA Camden album Almost In Love.

Although The Trouble with Girls is set in the 1920s, several lyrics within this song are anachronistic for the era, such as a reference to “armchair quarterbacks”, a term not coined until the advent of television sports broadcasting decades later.

The Military Service Disruption

 

August 8, 1958

All through the summer Gladys had been feeling ill and Elvis finally relented/insisted that something be done about it. He put his parents on a train to Memphis so that his mother could see her personal physician. Gladys was an alcoholic and deeply depressed about Elvis’s celebrity and military careers; she was not doing well in the Texas climate, or coping with the rags to riches social stratosphere; the measure of her son’s love, he had done it all for her.

Elvis would have to threaten to go AWOL to gain the leave that would have been granted to any regular solider to follow his parents back to Memphis.

Military service at Fort Hood in Texas., for Advanced Tank Training as part of the Second Armored Division. He was stationed there for six months.

The Hollywood Decade/The Elvis Establishment

1960

England’s Decca Records scrapped 25,000 copies of Ray Peterson’s “Tell Laura I Lover Her” because they felt the song, which recounts the last thoughts of a teenager dying from a car accident, was “too tasteless and vulgar.” A rival record company felt differently and recorded a cover version by a singer named Ricky Valance, which went to number one on the British chart. In the US, Peterson’s version reached number seven on the Billboard Pop chart.

Flaming Star  Elvis recorded four songs at Radio Recorders for Flaming Star between 8.00 p.m. and 4.00 a.m. Elvis was embarrassed by the material.

August 8, 1961

Britain’s Lonnie Donegan has his biggest hit in the US when the novelty tune “Does You’re Chewing Gum Lose Its Flavour On The Bedpost Overnight” reaches number 5.

Elvis Presley released the single “(Marie’s The Name) His Latest Flame” b/w “Little Sister.” The relatively intense tune, featuring a Bo Diddley beat, performed well on both pop and easy listening stations, reaching No. 4 on the Billboard Hot 100, and No. 2 on the Easy Listening chart, based (at the time) on the Top 100. However, the single’s Hot 100 chart run was atypical of a Top Ten hit. In the autumn of 1961 it shot from 22 to 4, then dropped to 10, then 26, all within the space of four weeks. The single (a double A-side with “Little Sister“, as in the States) spent four weeks at No. 1 in the UK Singles Chart — one of Presley’s nine UK chart-toppers between 1960 and 1962.

August 8, 1963

The Searchers were at No.1 on the UK singles chart with ‘Sweets For My Sweet’, the group’s first of three UK No.1’s. The song was written by Doc Pomus and Mort Shuman and was originally recorded by The Drifters.

The Beatles arrived in Guernsey in The Channel Islands, where they played two shows at Candie Gardens. They arrived in a 12-seater plane after making the 30 mile trip from Jersey, (their equipment was sent over by ferry). The Beatles would receive the sum of £1000 (approx.$1,600) for the two shows.

Viva Las Vegas

Romances: Ann-Margaret

August 8, 1964

A single by The Young World Singers called “Ringo For President” was released in the US. Ringo Starr comments: ‘I don’t believe I will have the time.’ Such was The Beatles drummer appeal that fans launched a “Ringo for President” campaign in the midst of the Johnson/Goldwater race. A well-organized contingent – most of whose members were below the voting age of 21 – banded together to enter the drummer as a third-party write-in candidate for Commander in Chief.

“House of the Rising Sun” by The Animals is released in America. Although the band would put 14 songs in the Top 40, this will be their only US number one. It was reported that the song was recorded in just one take and the band was actually in the studio for less than ten minutes.

The soundtrack to the Elvis Presley movie “Kissin’ Cousins” hit #5 in the U.K.

1992

Madonna went to No.1 on the US singles chart with ‘This Used To Be My Playground’. A No.3 hit in the UK, the track was taken from the film ‘A League Of Their Own.’

A riot broke out during a Guns N’ Roses and Metallica gig at Montreal stadium when Metallica’s show was cut short after singer James Hetfield was injured by pyrotechnics. Guns N’ Roses took the stage but frontman Axl Rose claimed that his throat hurt, causing the band to leave the stage early. The cancellation led to a riot by the audience who overturned cars, smashed windows, looted local stores and set fires.

1996

KISS appeared at the Riverfront Coliseum in Cincinnati, Ohio on their 192 date Alive World Tour. During this show a fan threw his fake leg on stage, which all the members signed and handed back to him.

1998

The Spice Girls had the UK No.1 single with ‘Viva Forever’, their 7th UK chart topper. Brandy and Monica were at No.1 on the US singles chart with ‘The Boy Is Mine’.

2011 Actor: Granddaughter Riley Keough

2010

John Lennon’s killer, Mark David Chapman, had his parole hearing delayed until early September so that officials could gather additional information. The 55-year-old Chapman became eligible for parole in 2000 after serving 20 years, but had been denied his freedom five times.

Ted Kowalski, a member of the Canadian quartet The Diamonds, died of heart disease at the age of 79. The vocal group had a string of hits in the late 1950s including “Little Darlin’”, “Silhouettes” and “The Stroll”.

2012

The members of Motley Crue and KISS announced that they would donate $100,000 to support those affected by the Aurora, Colorado movie theater shootings where 12 people were killed and 58 were injured. The musicians hoped that their gesture will encourage others to give.

2016

The judge overseeing Led Zeppelin’s ‘Stairway To Heaven’ trial ruled against the band and their publishing company’s attempts to recoup nearly $800,000 in legal fees. While a federal jury determined that Led Zeppelin were not guilty of plagiarizing Spirit’s ‘Taurus’ in a copyright infringement trial, judge R. Gary Klausner ruled that, since the lawsuit itself was not frivolous and meritless, the estate of Spirit guitarist Randy (California) Wolfe and their attorney Francis Malofiy were not obligated to repay the defendants’ legal fees.

2017

American singer, guitarist, songwriter, television host, and actor Glen Campbell died in Nashville, Tennessee at the age of 81.
