Another day that boils down to The Beatles and The Stones! We’ll throw in a coupla cool birthdays too, to break things up…

7/10/1964 – (50 years ago today) Over 200,000 Liverpudlians take to the streets of Liverpool to help John, Paul, George and Ringo celebrate the northern premiere of their first film “A Hard Day’s Night”! The boys were honored in a public ceremony in front of Liverpool Town Hall, and as The Beatles stood on a balcony overlooking the tremendous-size crowd gathered below, John gave a few “Sieg Heil!” salutes. Not everyone appreciated his sense of humor.

7/10/1965 – (49 years ago today) “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction” starts a four-week run at No. 1 on the U.S. chart, making it The Rolling Stones first American #1. However, back home in the U.K., the song was initially only played on pirate radio stations because the lyrics were deemed “too sexually suggestive”. Check out this performance from 1969 (Excellent quality!):

7/10/1947 – Happy Birthday Arlo Guthrie; the son of American folk legend Woody Guthrie is 67 years old today. “Alice’s Restaurant” still gets played on WBLM every Thanksgiving Day at Noon! Here’s a cool live clip for y’all:

7/10/1949 – Born on this day in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, Ronnie James Dio, the incredible lead vocalist for Elf, Rainbow, Black Sabbath, Heaven & Hell, and his own band Dio! After a six-month battle with stomach cancer, Ronnie passed away on May 16, 2010; he was 67 years old.
