May 31st: On this Day In Music History
|1961, Chuck Berry opened 'Berry Park', an amusement complex near St Louis. |
The park had it's own zoo, golf course and ferris wheel.
|1962, The Beatles played the last night of a 7-week run at the Star-Club, Hamburg, West Germany.|
|1965, Marianne Faithfull became a resident guest on BBC2 TV's 'Gadzooks! It's The In Crowd'.|
|1966, Filming began on The Monkees first TV series.|
|1968, Working on what will become The White album, The Beatles add overdubs of bass and |
vocals on 'Revolution'. After numerous overdubs have been added, the final six minutes of the
song evolved into chaotic, jamming, with Lennon repeatedly shouting "alright" and Yoko Ono
speaking random phrases. The jam becomes the basis for 'Revolution 9', and this session is the
first that Yoko attends.
1969, Jimi Hendrix was featured on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine, on sale for 35 Cents (2/6).
