CheapthrillsOn August 12, 1968, Big Brother and the Holding Company (with Janis Joplin as primary lead vocalist) released the legendary album ‘Cheap Thrills.’ It reached #1 on the Billboard charts in its eighth week in October. It kept the #1 spot for eight (nonconsecutive) weeks while the single, “Piece of My Heart” also became a huge hit. By the end of the year it was the most successful album of 1968, having sold nearly a million copies. The cover was drawn by cartoonist R. Crumb (the band’s original cover idea, a picture of the group naked in bed together, was dropped by the record company). Crumb had originally intended his art for the LP back cover, with a portrait of Joplin on the front. But Joplin, an avid fan of underground comics, and especially the work of Crumb, so loved the Cheap Thrills illustration that she demanded Columbia Records place it on the front cover. It is #9 on Rolling Stone’s list of one hundred greatest album covers.

Shortly after its release, the Guess Who were invited to play at the White House. Because of its supposed anti-American lyrics, Pat Nixon asked that they not play “American Woman.” The song is noted for its memorable anti-American line. “I don’t want your war machines/I don’t need your ghetto scenes.” The song hit #1 on the Billboard Hot 100.

Stewart would later remark: “I cannot see how the single is such a hit. It has no melody.” In 2004, Rolling Stone ranked the song #130 on their list of The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.

 

 

 

Rock_n_MeOn August 14, 1976, Steve Miller released “Rock ‘N Me,” one of his three hit singles not credited to the Steve Miller Band.

Producer George Martin played the honky-tonk piano. In Mojo magazine in October, 2008, McCartney acknowledged that the style of the song is a pastiche, saying, “I was basically spoofing the folksinger.” Lennon attributed the song to Paul, saying “Couldn’t you guess? Would I have gone to all that trouble about Gideon’s Bible and all that stuff?” Paul McCartney was inspired while playing acoustic guitar with John Lennon and Donovan in India (where the Beatles had gone on a retreat).

elvisPresleyAlohafromHawaiiOn August 16, 1977, at his Graceland home in Memphis, Elvis Presley took the book he’d been reading, Frank Adams’ “The Scientific Search For The Face Of Jesus,” and went into his bathroom.

“Don’t fall asleep in there,” said girlfriend Ginger Alden, knowing he had a habit of nodding off.

“Okay, I won’t,” he said. Ginger went back to sleep.

At 1:30 p.m. CST, Ginger awoke and saw Elvis was still gone. When knocking on the bathroom door produced no reply, she entered and found his lifeless body on the floor in front of the toilet.

Alden called for Elvis associates Joe Esposito and Al Strada, who arrived and called the fire department. An ambulance was dispatched. Daughter Lisa Marie and father Vernon arrived in the bathroom, but Lisa Marie was quickly removed. Elvis was rushed to Baptist Memorial Hospital, where, after several attempts to revive him, he died at 3:30 p.m. CST.

His autopsy was performed at 7:00 p.m. The official coroner’s report listed “cardiac arrhythmia” as the cause of Presley’s death, but this was later admitted to be a ruse by the Presley family with the help of autopsy physicians to cover up the real cause of death: a cocktail of ten prescribed drugs, taken together in doses no doctor would ever prescribe.

The phrase “cardiac arrhythmia,” in the context of the coroner’s report, means little more than a stopped heart; the report initially tried to attribute the arrhythmia to cardiovascular disease, but Elvis’ own personal physician has stated that Presley had no such chronic problems at the time. Most of Elvis’ many health problems can and have been traced back to rampant abuse of prescription drugs.

The painkillers Morphine and Demerol. Chloropheniramine, an antihistamine. The tranquilizers Placidyl and Vailum. Finally, four drugs were found in “significant” quantities: Codeine, an opiate, Ethinamate, largely prescribed at the time as a “sleeping pill,” Quaaludes, and a barbituate, or depressant, that has never been identified. It has also been rumored that Diazepam, Amytal, Nembutal, Carbrital, Sinutab, Elavil, Avental, and Valmid were found in his system at death.

The phrase “cardiac arrhythmia,” in the context of the coroner’s report, means little more than a stopped heart; the report initially tried to attribute the arrhythmia to cardiovascular disease, but Elvis’ own personal physician has stated that Presley had no such chronic problems at the time.

He left an estate valued at 4.9 million dollars, which by 1993 had grown to between 50 and 100 million.

 

200px-Everly_Brothers_-_CroppedOn August 16, 1957, at RCA’s McGavock Street studios in Nashville, the Everly Brothers recorded “Wake Up Little Susie.” The song reached #1 on the Billboard Pop chart and the Cash Box Best Selling Records chart, despite having been banned from Boston radio stations for lyrics that, at the time, were considered “suggestive.” It was ranked at #311 on the Rolling Stone magazine’s list of The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.

 

 

 

 

last_Train_to_Clarksville_coverOn August 16, 1966, the Monkees released their first single, “Last Train to Clarksville.” The song refers to Clarksville, Tennessee, which is in close proximity to Fort Campbell, Kentucky, the home of the 101st Airborne Division which flew numerous missions over Vietnam during the Vietnam War. The song topped the Billboard Hot 100 on November 5, 1966.

 

 

 

 

ramonesOn August 16, 1974, the Ramones made their live debut at CBGB in New York. Despite achieving only limited commercial success, the band was a major influence on the punk rock movement in both the US and, perhaps to a greater extent, in the UK.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

the-beatles-353x-353xOn August 17, 1960, in Hamburg, Germany, the Beatles began the first of 48 nights performing at the Indra Club, on stage for 4½ hours on weekdays, 6 hours on weekends. The arrangement led to 20-minute versions of songs like “Long Tall Sally.” The club owner, Bruno Koschmider, told the Beatles to “mach shau,” or really put on a show, which led to the band screaming, shouting, and leaping about the stage and sometimes playing while lying on the floor. John Lennon often yelled at the German audiences, called them Nazis, shouted “Sieg Heil!” at them, and wore outlandish outfits. One time he appeared on stage in only his underwear, and another time he had a toilet seat around his neck. The young crowd loved it. The Beatles eventually broke their contract and moved to the Top Ten Club. Koschmider exacted his revenge by getting George Harrison deported for being too young to play in bars, and Paul and Pete Best deported for starting a fire in the tiny room the group shared behind a screen in a local movie house.

 

 

jimihendrix-x600-1405632252On August 17, 1969, on the final day of the three-day Woodstock festival in Bethel, New York, there were performances by Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, the Who, Jimi Hendrix, Ten Years After, John Sebastian, Sha Na Na, Joe Cocker, Country Joe and the Fish, the Band, Ten Years After, Johnny Winter and the Paul Butterfield Blues Band.

 

 

 

 

nnnnnnnnnnnOn August 17, 1991, Nirvana shot the video for “Smells Like Teen Spirit” at GMT Studios in Culver City, California, costing less than $50,000 to make, the shoot features real Nirvana fans as the audience. The video won Nirvana the Best New Artist and Best Alternative Group awards at the 1992 MTV Video Music Awards, and in 2000 the Guinness World Records named ‘Teen Spirit’ the Most Played Video on MTV Europe.
