The Vegas Artist in Residence and Tour Decade

1970

In Boston, at one of the band’s last concerts, the Doors’ Jim Morrison asked the audience if they’d like to see something of his “that rhymes with ‘sock,'” and then, more bluntly, screamed “Would you like to see my genitals?” The electricity in the stadium was switched off, and keyboardist Ray Manzarek pulled Morrison, who was already facing lewd conduct charges after a Miami concert, off the stage.

27 year-old Paul McCartney issued a press statement, announcing that The Beatles had split, (one week before the release of his solo album). McCartney said, “I have no future plans to record or appear with The Beatles again, or to write any music with John”. John Lennon, who had kept his much-earlier decision to leave The Beatles quiet for the sake of the others, was furious. When a reporter called Lennon to comment upon McCartney’s resignation, Lennon said, “Paul hasn’t left. I sacked him.”

In Los Angeles, the Presleys and the family of Memphis “Mafiosi” Joe Esposito organize an Easter Egg Hunt for their children.
