Douglas, who say, “The government cannot, consistent with the First Amendment, require a broadcaster to censor its music.”

After a short period of feeling well, Elvis, again having breathing problems, forced Dr. Nichopoulos to admit Elvis as his patient to Memphis Baptist Memorial Hospital. Elvis got through a great amount of tests to determine the cause of his condition. Heart failure was ruled out and Dr. Nichopoulos deflected that it could have something to do with Elvis’ “acupuncture” (Demerol  injections) treatments in California.  Elvis had to remain in the hospital for 2 weeks and Linda stayed on his side the whole time.

Elvis Presley’s taxes probably funded the highways, as much as needing to ship his product to market.

The Charlotte Observer reported the following incident in its June 29, 1956, edition. It seems Elvis was sitting in his “baby blue” limousine after his Thursday night show in Charleston, South Carolina, when a girl reporter for The News and Courier approached his car to take a picture. Apparently, she was after a closeup. She was so close that Elvis was able to stick his head out and bite her hand.

Many girls probably would have enjoyed being bitten by Elvis. This reporter was not one of them. “Hey, you big bruiser, what’s the idea?” she asked him. “You trying to make like Marlon Brando or something.”

“I was only being friendly, like a little puppy dog,” Elvis responded.

The reporter told Elvis it was the first time anyone had ever bitten her as a sign of friendship. “Lady, if you want to get ahead, you gotta be different,” explained Elvis. It was a different era. No lawsuit was filed.

James Brown’s first album, Live at the Apollo, debuted on the pop charts, eventually rising to #2. Despite enormous chart success, he never had a #1 pop album of forty-nine albums hit the pop charts through 1988.  Live would remain his all-time biggest success and would be considered a milestone in the development of live albums for years to come.

Del Shannon‘s cover version of the Beatles’ “From Me To You” became the first song written by John Lennon and Paul McCartney to appear on the American charts, where it would stay for four weeks, reaching #77. The Beatles’ rendition climbed only to #116. The title of the song was inspired from a letters column called From You To Us that ran in the popular British music newspaper, The New Musical Express.

The U.S. Army grants Jimi Hendrix an honorable discharge on the basis of unsuitability. A month earlier his platoon sergeant filed a report that said: “He has no interest whatsoever in the Army…. It is my opinion that Private Hendrix will never come up to the standards required of a soldier. I feel that the military service will benefit if he is discharged as soon as possible.” Hendrix would later falsely claim that he had received a medical discharge after breaking his ankle during his 26th parachute jump.

Touring Australia The Beatles played two shows at the Festival Hall, Brisbane. Over 8,000 fans had waited until after midnight to greet the group as they landed at Brisbane Airport.

At Brian Epstein’s insistence, The Beatles reluctantly record German versions of “She Loves You” and “I Want To Hold Your Hand” in Rue de Seures, Paris, under the direction of George Martin.

Media Gossip on whether The Beatles movies make as much as Elvis’,  mentor/manager Col. Tom Parker replied “There’s no comparison because they have to split it four ways. Besides, they’d don’t eat as much as Elvis.”

Elvis at Graceland

The Wake and Aftermath

1979

ETERNAL REVENUE : Elvis’ Millions Were Disappearing When

THREE DAYS AFTER HER former father-in-law, Vernon Presley, died in June of 1979, Priscilla Beaulieu Presley sat in a downtown Memphis office and tried to comprehend the sobering news she had just heard: Without drastic action, everything that Elvis Presley had left their daughter, Lisa Marie, could be lost. Even his beloved home, Graceland.

1982 Elvis Presley Enterprises/Graceland Tourism

1984 Actor ExWife: Priscilla Presley

1984

Bruce Springsteen kicked off the first leg of his Born in the USA Tour with a three night run at the Civic Center in St. Paul, Minnesota. Springsteen would play a total of 156 shows ending on October 2, 1985 in Los Angeles.

1985

David Bowie and Mick Jagger recorded a version of the Martha Reeves and the Vandellas 1964 hit ‘Dancing In The Street.’ for the forthcoming Live Aid fundraising event. The single went on to become a No.1 UK hit. The original plan was to perform a track together live, with Bowie performing at Wembley Stadium and Jagger at John F. Kennedy Stadium, until it was realized that the satellite link-up would cause a half-second delay that would make this impossible unless either Bowie or Jagger mimed their contribution, something neither artist was willing to do.
The Cooper-Hewitt Museum, a part of the Smithsonian Institute, auctions off John Lennon’s psychedelic-painted 1965 Rolls-Royce Phantom V at Sotheby’s in New York. The car, which Lennon donated to the museum in 1977, was sold to the Ripley’s Believe It Or Not museum for a then record price of $2,299,000. When John had the car painted from its original black in April, 1967, it drew some public outrage. An old woman in London’s downtown attacked the car using her umbrella and yelling: “You swine, you swine! How dare you do this to a Rolls-Royce!”

1991

Dionne Warwick, Chaka Khan, En Vogue, Levert, and Dianne Reeves, among others, performed on the Celebrate the Soul of American Music  TV show.

1998

George Harrison announces that he had been receiving radiation treatment for throat cancer caused by smoking. Harrison says he has been given a clean bill of health by saying, “I’m not going to die on you folks just yet.” That sad event would take place on November 29th, 2001.

1999

Michael Jackson suffered severe bruising after falling over 50 feet when a bridge collapsed during a concert at Munich’s Olympic stadium. Jacko was singing ‘Earth Song’ at the time of the accident.

2003 Recording Artist: Daughter Lisa Marie Presley

2003

Destiny’s Child singer Beyonce started a five week run at No.1 on the UK album chart with ‘Dangerously In Love’, also a US No.1.

2007

Canada Post issued the limited edition Anne Murray stamp. She was recognized along with three other iconic Canadian recording artists: Paul Anka, Gordon Lightfoot and Joni Mitchell.

2010 Actor: Granddaughter Riley Keough

2016

Elvis Presley’s daughter Lisa Marie filed for divorce from her fourth husband, Michael Lockwood, just months after the couple celebrated their 10th wedding anniversary the previous January. Lisa Marie had previously been wed to Danny Keough from 1988 until 1994, Michael Jackson from 1994 to 1999 and to actor Nicolas Cage from 2002 to 2004.

Peter And Gordon‘s “World Without Love” reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Paul McCartney wrote the song, but it was not credited to him on the disc, to see if a McCartney tune would be successful even if no one knew he had written it. At the time he composed “World Without Love”, McCartney was courting Jane Asher, the sister of the duo’s Peter Asher. Peter Asher went on to become James Taylor and Linda Ronstadt’s manager.

The Drifters’ last Top 10 hit, “Under the Boardwalk” enters the Hot 100, where it will peak at #4.

The Mothers of Invention released their debut studio album Freak Out! on Verve Records. Often cited as one of rock music’s first concept albums, the album is a satirical expression of frontman Frank Zappa’s perception of American pop culture and the nascent freak scene of Los Angeles. It was also one of the earliest double albums in rock music.

Elvis reported to MGM for a music meeting and wardrobe fittings for Double Trouble, which was for the time being called You’re Killing Me.

Then, at Burbank California NBC Color City Studio 4 (6 & 8 PM) Elvis performed in front of invited audiences for two “sit down” concerts – the forerunner of the much later MTV Unplugged format.

On stage were Elvis with his 1960 J200, and entourage members Charlie Hodge with his Gibson L4 and Alan Fortas with a classical guitar prop used in the special and/or a case both of which he basically just kept on his lap. DJ played percussion on an empty guitar case and Scotty Moore was the only one onstage with an electric guitar, his 1963 Super 400.

Elvis infamously took Scotty Moore’s guitar and stood up, pouting over no strap, which Charlie Hodge sang the line “no strap today” and Elvis carried on.

A band called Smile changes it’s name to Queen featuring Freddie Mercury (possibly still known as Freddie Bulsara) on vocals, guitarist Brian May, drummer Roger Taylor and Mike Grose on bass played their first gig at Truro City Hall, Cornwall, England. They were billed as Smile, Brian and Roger’s previous band, for whom the booking had been made originally. Original material at this time included an early version of ‘Stone Cold Crazy’.

The Trans-Continental Pop Festival (better known as the The Festival Express)set off. The tour was unique in that rather than flying to each city, most of the acts travelled on a chartered CN train. The Grateful Dead, Janis Joplin, The Band, The Flying Burrito Brothers and Buddy Guy Blues Band all travelled together on the train playing shows in Toronto, Winnipeg, Saskatoon and Calgary.

The Jackson Five started a two week run at No.1 on the US singles chart with ‘The Love You Save’, the group’s third No.1 of the year, it made No.7 in the UK.

Elvis Presley’s single “The Wonder Of You” hit #9 in the U.S. In the United States, both songs charted at #9 together in the spring of 1970 also reached number 37 on the US Country Singles chart, and number one on the easy listening chart. “The Wonder of You” was one of his most successful records in the UK ever, topping the UK Singles Chart for six weeks in the summer of that year. It also stayed at number one in the Irish Charts for three weeks that same year. This was the 59th Top 40 hit of his career.

Under the alias of John Carpenter, Elvis flew home to Memphis from Dallas.
