The RCA Victor Atomic Powered Singer

Elvis Presley (with Scotty Moore and Bill Black),  made his Las Vegas debut, opening for the Freddie Martin Orchestra and comedian Shecky Greene at the New Frontier Hotel.
Although he had become a teen sensation by this time, Elvis was not the typical Vegas Strip entertainer of the period and the audience reception was cool-to-indifferent. The contract was torn up after one week of what was supposed to be a two-week engagement. The experience was not a total loss, however. While there, Presley witnessed Freddie Bell and the Bellboys doing a raucous version of Big Mama Thornton’s blues hit “Hound Dog,” and he soon worked that song into his live act.  Presley wouldn’t play Las Vegas again for almost 13 years. 

The Military Service Disruption

The Nerk Twins appeared at The Fox And Hounds in Caversham, Berkshire, England. The Nerk Twins being John Lennon and Paul McCartney who were staying at Paul’s aunt’s pub.

1963

Jan & Dean recorded “Surf City,” co-written by Brian Wilson and Jan Berry, with the Beach Boys providing background vocals. The instrumentation was by members of the famed group of Los Angeles studio musicians known as the “Wrecking Crew.” This became the first surf song single to reach #1 on the Billboard Hot 100.

1964

The Beatles were filmed running around Thornbury Playing Fields in Middlesex, England, for their first movie, “A Hard Day’s Night.” The footage was combined with an earlier sequence shot at London’s Gatwick Airport and became the famous “Can’t Buy Me Love” scene. John Lennon was attending a luncheon to honor manager Brian Epstein at the time and not present for the film shoot. A body double was used.

1965

The Rolling Stones began their third North American tour with a show at the Maurice Richard Arena in Montréal, their first live performance in Canada. Over the following three nights, they did concerts in Ottawa, Toronto, and London, Ontario.

1983 Elvis Presley Enterprises/Graceland Tourism

1984 Actor ExWife: Priscilla Presley

1985

The “We Are The World” album was released. In addition to the title track, the album included nine previously unreleased songs by donating artists, including Prince, Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, and Tina Turner, among others.

Liberace first appeared on the TV soap opera “Another World”. He also was a guest VJ on MTV later in the afternoon.

1987

Roy Orbison celebrated his 51st birthday by re-recording some of his biggest hits. Included were “Oh Pretty Woman”, “Crying”, “Only the Lonely”, “Dream Baby”, “Running Scared” and many others. These newer recordings are nowhere near the quality of the originals, so if you’re in the market, make sure you buy the original hits, available from Sony Music and specialty labels like Rhino.

1988

Roy Orbison celebrated his 52nd birthday at a Bruce Springsteen concert, during which the audience sang “Happy Birthday” to him.

Whitney Houston topped the pop charts with “Where Do Broken Hearts Go” while setting a record for most consecutive #1 singles. It was her seventh, beating out both the Bee Gees and the Beatles, who each had six in a row.

Houston record was partly because Elvis Presley’s run of #1 from 1956 through 1957 were no longer counted.

1995

Little Richard performed at the opening of Dolly Parton’s Dollywood Amusement Park in Pigeon Falls, TN.

The Sunday Times of London reported that Peter Hodgson of Liverpool had found a 1959 tape in his attic containing some of the Beatles’ earliest recordings. The 16-song tape included “Hello Little Girl,” a Lennon-McCartney composition the Beatles never recorded commercially, and Ray Charles’ “Hallelujah, I Love Her So.” The tape was made on a reel-to-reel recorder that Paul McCartney had borrowed from Hodgson’s father.

1998

James Earl Ray died of liver failure at age 70 while serving a life sentence in prison for the assassination of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Ray confessed to the crime, but later recanted insisting he had been framed.

2004 Recording Artist: Daughter Lisa Marie Presley

2008

Amy Winehouse went out on a drink and drug-fuelled spree and hit and head-butted two men. After drinking all day, Amy visited the Good Mixer pub in Camden, London with Babyshambles guitarist Mik Whitnall. Inside she allegedly punched Mustapha el Mounmi in the face after he refused to give way to her at the pool table. The singer then left to visit Bar Tok in the early hours and once at the bar shouted “I am a legend get these people out. I want to take drugs.” After leaving the bar a good Samaritan tried to get her a cab, but she reportedly thought he was trying to molest her and allegedly head-butted him in the face.

2013

Glen Campbell‘s publicist told members of the press that his client is no longer capable of performing on stage due to advancing Alzheimer’s disease. Sandy Brokaw went on to say that the 77-year-old Campbell planned on recording one final album called “See You There”, which would feature new renditions of old songs.

2011 Actor: Granddaughter Riley Keough

2015

London England’s Sunday Times named Sir Paul McCartney as the wealthiest UK musician with assets of an estimated at over 730 million pounds. He was followed by Andrew Lloyd-Webber at 650 million, the band U2 with 431 million, Elton John with 270 million and Mick Jagger with 225 million pounds.

In Brooklyn, New York, Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band played the first of two nights of  The River Tour at the Barclays Center. The second night was on April 25.

The result of this session was stunning, not only the intended song, but Big Boss Man as well.
