A birth, a death, and why we like demo’s…

5/20/1968 – (46 years ago today) Armed with a bunch of fresh material after their visit to India, The Beatles tape 23 new songs on a 4-track recorder at George Harrison‘s home in Surrey, England. Most end up on their next two releases (“The White Album” and “Abbey Road”); the demos include “Cry Baby Cry”, “While My Guitar Gently Weeps”, “Blackbird” and “Child Of Nature”, a Lennon song that became “Jealous Guy”. Where are  those reels?

 

5/20/2013 – …and has it already been a year? The Doors founding member and keyboardist Ray Manzarek passed away on this date last year (age 74) after suffering from cancer for quite some time. He died in a clinic in Roseinheim, Germany, with his wife and brothers at his bedside. Check out some un-real history here; it’s The Doors being interviewed by Dick Clark on “American Bandstand”, July, 1967: 

5/20/1944 – Screw Belushi’s mockery, I say; let’s give it up and send out some Happy 70th Birthday cheer to the one and only Joe Cocker! You will love this 3 minutes and 50 seconds live 1970 “Mad Dogs & Englishmen” footage with Leon Russell:
