Beatles security overkill and smoky Neil

6/30/1966 (49 years ago today) – Another in a long line of reasons why they wanted to stop touring: The Beatles played the first of three concerts at the Budokan in Japan with 3,000 working police officers lined up and ready at each performance to handle the sold-out crowd(s) of 10,000 per show. When they weren’t onstage, the boys were essentially locked up in their hotel suites. No sight-seeing, no eating out, no nuthin’. Touring has become a drag.

6/30/1973 (42 years ago today)George Harrison knocks Paul McCartney off the top of the U.S. singles chart with “Give Me Love, Give Me Peace On Earth”. It is George‘s second Number One single as a solo artist.

6/30/1976 (39 years ago today) – Police raid the home of Neil Diamond searching for drugs. They find less than an ounce of marijuana. This actually happened.

What d’ya think of the Calendar? Let us know right here on our web site and on the WBLM Facebook and Twitter pages with the hashtag #TommysCoffeeBreak.

“Please take hold of my hand/That I might understand you…”, xoxo!
