An abbreviated calendar today. Hey, we gut stuff to do...

8/29/1965 (53 years ago today) - The Beatles perform at The Hollywood Bowl, Los Angeles, California. Tickets cost $3.00!!! Get the set list and tour stats here...

8/29/1970 (48 years ago today) - So good, even Bruce covers it live: Edwin Starr kicks off three weeks at No. 1 with the classic protest single "War". Good God y'all, indeed, still quite potent:

8/29/1977 (41 years ago today) - Were their names Moe, Larry and Curly?: Three people are arrested in Memphis after a police informant infiltrated a group that planned to steal Elvis Presley's 900-pound, steel-lined, copper-plated coffin and hold it for ransom! The decision is made {somewhat late, but anyway...} to go ahead and move The King's remains to Graceland.
