Britain’s BBC banned Bobby ‘Boris’ Pickett‘s single, “Monster Mash”, saying it was offensive and in poor taste. They eventually relented and the song went on to become a seasonal hit, reaching a high of #3 in 1973.

It Happened at the World’s Fair  Production: September 4-13 in Seattle

Rain canceled filming on Monday September 10, and Presley and company lay low.

Visiting the fair as a tourist was the 315-pound New Orleans trumpeter Al Hirt,who was asked his opinions about modern music. He wishfully believed — like all jazzers seemingly did back then — that there was “a strong surge toward the return of the big bands” … ‘Better music is coming back all the time. Even Elvis Presley is changing his material’” (The Seattle Times, September 11, 1962).

September 10, 1963

The Daily Mirror published a two-page article about The Beatles. Written by Donald Zec, the feature is entitled ‘Four Frenzied Little Lord Fauntleroys Who Are Earning 5,000 Pounds A Week’ Zec, who had attended a Beatles concert in Luton on Sept. 6 and then invited them to his home to complete the interview, referred to The Beatles’ haircuts as ‘A stone-age hair style’. The article provided a major boost to their career.

During a chance meeting between The Rolling Stones at Studio 51 Jazz Club in London with Paul McCartney and John Lennon, the two played the Stones a partly finished song ‘I Wanna Be Your Man’ which the Stones later record.

Manager Brian Epstein began negotiating with ABC-TV to air a Beatles cartoon series. The weekly show aired from September 25, 1965 to May 9, 1969. Veteran voice actor Paul Frees provided the speaking voices of John and George while Lance Percival of the British “Carry On” films did the voices of Paul and Ringo.

The Supremes achieve their seventh US number one record when “You Can’t Hurry Love” tops the Billboard chart. Phil Collins would enjoy similar success with the song sixteen years later when his rendition also went to number one.

The Rolling Stones appear on The Ed Sullivan Show in New York. Guitarist Brian Jones performs despite a cast on his right hand which he broke in a fall in Tangier.

The Monkees‘ “The Last Train To Clarksville” is released in the US. By the first week of November, it will be the top tune in the nation. The lyrics describe a phone call by a military man to his girl, asking that she ‘take the last train to Clarksville’ so they can have one last night together before he has to leave on the morning train. The record topped out at #23 in the UK.

The Beatles started a six-week run at No.1 on the US album chart with Revolver the group’s ninth US chart topper. The title ‘Revolver’, like Rubber Soul before it, is a pun, referring both to a kind of handgun as well as the “revolving” motion of the record as it is played on a turntable.

September 10, 1967

Elvis had some brief time between films and wanted to record some new songs and material for new singles as well as bonus songs to fill out the Clamback soundtrack album. One of the songs Elvis really wanted to do was Guitar Man. They fooled around with the song, but couldn’t replicate Reed’s guitar. So Reed was tracked down and asked to play along. Elvis in R.C.A studio in Nashville, shown with fans:

Image result for Elvis presley september 10, 1967Image result for Elvis presley september 10, 1967

The result of this session was stunning, not only the intended song, but Big Boss Man as well. Unfortunately there was a big fight about the rights of publishing, the Col demanding, Elvis silent and so Reed, song writer and guitarist, stormed out. The session went on till 5.30 a.m. but the atmosphere was ruined.

This Day in Music Spotlight: Elvis Presley and Jerry ‘Guitar Man’ Reed

Guitar Man would be Elvis’ last of eleven #1 Country hits, but did not crack the Billboard Top 40.

September 10, 1968

The New York Dolls spit up. The influential American band formed in 1972 and made just two albums, the 1973 ‘New York Dolls’ and 1974 ‘Too Much Too Soon’.

August 4, 1966

John Lennon’s comment that The Beatles were “more popular than Jesus Christ” was re-printed in an American teen magazine called Datebook and was widely reported in North America. The statement, made to London Evening Standard journalist Maureen Cleave several months earlier, caused a public outcry in the US and led to mass destruction of Beatle records. Thirty five radio stations banned all Beatles songs and even the Ku Klux Klan made threats against the group. What Lennon actually said was “Christianity will go. It will go. It will vanish and shrink. I needn’t argue about that, I’m right and I will be proved right. We’re more popular than Jesus Christ now; I don’t know which will go first, rock ‘n roll or Christianity. Jesus was all right, but his disciples were thick and ordinary. It’s them twisting it that ruins it for me.”

A ban on the broadcast of Beatles records in South Africa and on some U.S. radio stations went into effect in response to John Lennon saying the band was more popular than Jesus. The South African Broadcasting Corporation’s ban on Beatles records lasted for five years, until after the group had disbanded, but continued in subsequent years on John Lennon’s solo recordings.

The album which was recorded at Abbey Road studios, London during the same time that The Beatles were recording Sgt. Pepper peaked at No.6 on the UK album chart and failed to chart in the US.

The Police made their live debut as a three-piece band when they played at Rebecca’s Birmingham, England. The Police became globally popular in the late 1970s and are generally regarded as one of the first New Wave groups to achieve mainstream success, playing a style of rock that was influenced by punk, reggae, and jazz.

Two Missouri girls were killed and a third was critically injured when a car being driven by drunk 18-year-old Memphis teen,  Treatise Wheeler, with three teen girls in the car, swerved into a crowd of over 2,000 mourners standing in front of Graceland’s music gate at about 4am.

Dragged and killed were Alice Marie Hovatar, Juanita Joanne Johnson while Tammy Baiter was seriously injured.

The driver was charged with drunk driving, leaving the scene of an accident and two counts of second degree murder.

More than 75-thousand mourners surrounded the estate for the funeral service of Elvis Presley at his Graceland estate in Memphis, Tennessee. Florists in the surrounding States were press for flower orders.

All city buildings in Memphis immediately lowered their flags to half-staff. 300 National Guard troops to the area to maintain order

An estimated 30,000 fans were able to pass by Elvis coffin during a Memphis Heat Wave.

The Funeral service was held in Graceland’s living room, and lasted from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. Wooddale Church of Christ pastor C.W. Bradley led the sermon, which also featured a testimonial from comedian Jackie Kahane, who often opened Elvis’ shows. Other Elvis tour vets -—J.D. Sumner and the Stamps, the Statesmen, and Kathy Westmoreland — performed some of Elvis’ favorite hymns including “Heavenly Father.”

John Wayne, Caroline Kennedy, Burt Reynolds, James Brown, and George Hamilton.

Kennedy showed up, not on behalf of her family, as Vernon Presley thought, but for Rolling Stone Magazine.

Col Parker had a fight with Vernon over bootleg products and signing a new contract to protect Elvis; Parker wore overly casual clothes, and had declined being a pall bearer.

Then, the motorcade.

An estimated 80,000 people came to watch the funeral procession, lining the street and bearing handmade signs expressing their sorrow for the loss of The King.

To Forest Hills: Presley was entombed in a white marble mausoleum at Forest Hill Cemetery in Memphis near the grave of his mother, Gladys, but would be re-buried at Graceland the following November at his father’s request, and the City of Memphis re-zoned Graceland for a family graveyard.

Elvis’ burial began with a white hearse followed by seventeen white limousines in a long procession down Elvis Presley Boulevard, ending at Forest Hill Cemetery.

The 900-pound copper coffin was carried by pallbearers Jerry Schilling, Joe Esposito, George Klein, Lamar Fike, Billy Smith, Charlie Hodges, Gene Smith, and Dr. George Nichopoulous.

In the mausoleum, a small service was held, then the paying of respects from family and friends. Elvis’ father Vernon was the last to leave, kissing the coffin and repeating “Daddy will be with you soon.” Elvis was interred at 4:30 p.m. CST.

Fats Domino‘s “I Want to Walk You Home” enters the US record charts, where it will eventually reach the Top Ten. Although Fats would have 18 singles that were million sellers, he never had a number one record.

Five weeks after it entered the Billboard Hot 100, Elvis Presley’s “A Big Hunk Of Love” reached number one.
