Did The Doors just kinda sell-out? -- Who's laughing like a psycho? -- Impressive resume for "Who-Is-This-Guy-Again?"

8/2/1968 (50 years ago today) - After the searing psychedelia of their first two albums, this new single was deemed "too commercial" by many loyal fans: The Doors start two weeks at No. 1 with "Hello, I Love You" -- It's their second chart-topping 45, and the band will go on to have eight Top 40 hits between 1967-'71, not too shabby for one of rock's most far-out and unpredictable outfits...

8/2/1976 (42 years ago today) - From the "For Those Who Also Served" Dept.: On this date, Pink Floyd road manager Peter "Puddy" Watts was found dead from a heroin overdose, and yeah, you know who he is, in fact you've actually listened to him hundreds of times -- That's Watts' crazed laughter that's all over the "Dark Side Of The Moon" album...

8/2/1950 - Happy Birthday to singer-songwriter-guitarist Andy Fairweather-Low, 68 years old today. Alright, we know you're saying "Who? Never heard of him!" -- Well, Andy built up quite a cult following in the mid-1970's thanks to a nice run of solo LP's with strange titles and music that still sounds smart, bright and catchy today: "Spider Jiving" (1974), "La Booga Rooga" (1975) and "Be Bop 'n Holla" (1976) are all totally worth your time, really solid stuff! So what do they sound like? Kinda like a mix of all the rockers that Andy has played for, earning a well-deserved reputation as one of the most reliable go-to guys around -- He's made records and/or toured with {take a deep breath now} Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton, George Harrison, Roger Waters, Elton John, Pete Townshend, Jackson Browne, Bill Wyman, Sheryl Crow, David Crosby, Tom Jones, Edie Brickell, Brian Wilson, Ringo Starr and Jimi Hendrix! To sum it up, this Andy-what's-his-name fella is rather quite alright then, check him out...
