6/12/1965 (52 years ago today) - The Beatles were included in The Queen's Birthday Honours List to each receive the prestigious MBE (Members of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire, given for outstanding service to the community or local 'hands on' service). Protests poured into Buckingham Palace, with Member of Parliament and Liberal Party member Hector Dupuis famously quoting "British Royalty has put me on the same level as a bunch of vulgar numbskulls". Four months later, the boys receive their awards anyway, so high five's all around!!!

6/12/1965 (52 years ago today) - The Supremes became the very first all-female recording act to score five consecutive Number One singles when "Back In My Arms Again" hits the top spot on this date -- The girls had an absolutely incredible run at this time, going on to have 11 more No. 1's! (Noteworthy: after they break-up, Diana Ross would score an additional eight chart-toppers as a solo artist). The Supremes were bad-ass, no doubt about it...

6/12/1951 - When you replace either the lead singer or the drummer, you end up changing the entire dynamic of a band...: Happy Birthday to original Cheap Trick percussionist, the ridiculously under-appreciated Bun E. Carlos, 66 years old today. The band doesn't look or sound the same without him...
