On the last day of a five-day break from their North American tour, The Beatles attended a recording session for The Byrds.

Elvis was visited by the Beatles from 10.00 p.m. at his Perugia Way home until the early hours of the next day.

The Beach Boys ‘God Only Knows’ peaked at No.2 on the UK singles chart. The song broke new ground in many ways. It was one of the first commercial songs to use the word ‘God’ in its title and Brian Wilson used many unorthodox instruments, including the French horns that are heard in the song’s famous introduction.

Double Trouble

August 27, 1967

The Beatles’ manager Brian Epstein was found dead of an apparent drug overdose at his home in Belgravia, London, just a few weeks shy of his 33rd birthday. A coroner’s inquest concluded that Epstein died from an overdose of the sleeping pill Carbitrol. The Fab Four were in Bangor, North Wales at the time, attending a conference by the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. The death is ruled accidental and the Maharishi tells the Beatles that Epstein’s death, being in the realm of the physical world, is “not important.” The group would later renounce their association with the Maharishi and Epstein is remembered as being the man who took The Beatles from being a rough looking club act to the most successful band in the world. He also managed several other artists including Gerry & The Pacemakers, Billy J. Kramer and the Dakotas, Cilla Black and The Remo Four. The first contract between The Beatles and Epstein was auctioned in London in 2008, and was sold for £240,000.

Elvis continued to spend time at the Circle G Ranch but instead of horseback riding he had found a new hobby: target shooting.

August 27, 1968

1988

George Michael had his fourth consecutive number one single from the album “Faith”, when “Monkey” climbed to the top of the Billboard Pop chart. It was his eighth US chart topper of the 1980s, a record bested only by Michael Jackson.

1992

John Lennon’s handwritten lyrics to The Beatles song ‘A Day In The Life’ from Sgt. Pepper sold in an auction at Sotheby’s London for $100,000 (£56,600). The lyrics were put up for sale again in March 2006 by Bonhams in New York. Sealed bids were opened on 7 March 2006 and offers started at about $2 million. The lyric sheet was auctioned again by Sotheby’s in June 2010 when it was purchased by an anonymous American buyer who paid $1,200,000 (£810,000).

1994

Boyz II Men started a 14 week run at No.1 on the US singles chart with ‘I’ll Make Love To You’, a No.5 hit in the UK. The record- breaking 14 week stay came to an end when they knocked themselves from the top with ‘On Bended Knee’.

2011 Actor: Granddaughter Riley Keough

2012

Just as his new album, “The Singer” was being released, Art Garfunkel announced that he had regained his voice after being sidelined since 2010 with vocal paresis. The condition had caused the cancelation of a planned Simon And Garfunkel North American tour and although no further reunion talks were scheduled, Garfunkel said he was still open to the idea.

2013

Miley Cyrus’s risque performance at the MTV VMAs drew complaints from a parenting pressure group in the US. The Parents Television Council (PTC) issued a complaint against the channel over the 20-year-old’s routine, which saw her dance suggestively in a nude bikini with singer Robin Thicke. It argued the show should not have been rated as suitable for 14 year olds, adding: “Heads should roll at MTV.”

Madonna was named the world’s top-earning celebrity over the past year. The 55-year-old made an estimated $125m (£80m) thanks to her MDNA tour, clothing and fragrance lines, according to Forbes. The magazine said it was the most money Madonna had made in a single year since it began tracking earnings in 1999.

2015

With only 15.66 million digital songs sold in the US during the previous week, the music industry saw its lowest weekly sales since December 2007 when just 15.64 million units were sold. Live music was another matter, as ticket sales for concerts across America were up 5.6% in the first eight months of the year.
