6/6/1965 (51 years ago today) - The Rolling Stones release "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction" here in the U.S., where it becomes the bands first No. 1 single. Over in Merry Olde England, different story: the song is (initially) only aired on pirate radio stations because the lyrics were deemed "too sexually suggestive". Hey, hey, hey...

6/6/1970 (46 years ago today) - Syd Barrett plays his first solo gig (since leaving Pink Floyd) at London's Olympia Hall, backed by a band that featured old friend David Gilmour on guitar. Both audience and band become totally baffled when Syd abruptly takes off his guitar during the fourth number...and walks offstage!!! The very sad downward spiral of Syd Barrett is underway...

6/6/1982 (34 years ago today) - Over 85,000 attend "The Peace Sunday -- We Have A Dream" antinuclear concert at The Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California. The fact that the line-up is a predictable mix of the usual No Nukes tribe doesn't mean it wasn't near-perfect six hours worth of music: Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Crosby, Stills & Nash, Bob Dylan, Stevie Wonder, Bonnie Raitt, Jackson Browne, Linda Ronstadt, Donovan, Bette Midler, Taj Mahal and Joan Baez all perform. There are worse ways to spend a day...
