All 1960's edition today: It's a fact, the Sixties truly rocked and here are three inescapable reasons why...

1964: It was like this every time The Beatles showed up anywhere! (Photo: William Lovelace/Getty Images)

6/22/1963 (55 years ago today) - Did you know that Marvin Gaye played the drums on this one?: 13-year-old Stevie Wonder makes his debut on the singles chart (as "Little Stevie Wonder") with the classic "Fingertips - Parts 1 and 2", the first live, non-studio recording to reach No. 1 since 1952's "It's In The Book" by comedian Johnny Standley, who was never going to be George Carlin...

6/22/1964 (54 years ago today) - The Beatles play their first ever show in New Zealand at the Wellington Town Hall -- Of course, the grown-ups still weren't taking them seriously, so this is what happens: the local Chief of Police refused to provide the boys with proper law enforcement, resulting in just two (just two!!) policemen left to control the over 5,000 screaming fans that showed up! No donuts tonight...

6/22/1968 (50 years ago today) - The Jeff Beck Group make their U.S. concert debut at the Fillmore East, New York City. Front-man/lead vocalist Rod Stewart is so nervous he performs most of the set with his back to the audience, just in case he started to vomit, which he thought for sure was going to happen. True story!
