THIS HAPPENED


In 1964, The Beach Boys started a two-week run at #1 on the US singles chart with “I Get Around,” their first #1. It is noteworthy for its back-to-front structure — it starts with a chorus and has two short verses.

In 1964, all five members of The Rolling Stones appeared as judges on the British rate-a-record TV show, Juke Box Jury, exhibiting such impolite behavior that they caused a considerable uproar in the British press.

In 1966, The Lovin’ Spoonful released “Summer In The City.”

In 1969, The Rolling Stones’ “Honky Tonk Women” was released.

In 1974, Steely Dan’s gig in Santa Monica, California, was their final show for 18 years.

In 1976, The Clash made their live debut, supporting the Sex Pistols in Sheffield, England.
