Today you got a British dress code suggestion for The Stones -- A booze-fueled Jim Morrison performance (is there any other kind?) -- In memoriam: a U.K. blues man who was proud to boogie...

Waiting to wait: The Doors in London, Sept. 1968. (Central Press/Getty Images)

4/10/1965 (54 years ago today) - Over in the town of Wrexham in North Wales, a British grammar school tells parents to keep their kids in the pre-approved school uniforms and "not to send them to school in 'corduroy trousers', like the ones worn by The Rolling Stones!" You know what that could lead to...

4/10/1970 (49 years ago today) - The Doors play two sold-out shows (7 and 10 pm) at the Boston Arena, capacity 6,300. Well, naturally Jim had been drinking all day, so by the time of the second show (which never got underway until after midnight!) something was bound to happen -- The venue enforces the 2:00 am curfew by cutting off power to the band; Jim tries to convince the audience to stage a sit-in and announces "The a**holes are gonna win if we don't do something!" -- Keyboardist Ray Manzarek explains to The Lizard King if the group doesn't follow the rules, they'll be banned from other venues -- Turns out the manager of The Salt Palace (where The Doors are supposed to play the following evening) is actually in the audience in Boston, and cancels their concert the next day. Both shows are recorded for future release (supposedly, some of it ended up on "Absolutely Live") and are currently available on The Doors web site. There is no known equivalent to this band today, that's for sure...

4/10/1950 - Born on this date, singer and guitar-ace "Lonesome" Dave Peverett, a really taken-for-granted classic rock talent for sure. Dave started out in 1968 as rhythm guitarist for London-based blues legends Savoy Brown, but his prowess and musical chops were heads above the other band members and in no time at all, he became the de-facto band leader; after five Savoy Brown albums, Dave left to form Foghat in 1971 and, with studio help from Todd Rundgren and Dave Edmunds, the band quickly became arena-rock staples with mega-album sales to boot for classic LP's like their self-titled debut, "Rock & Roll Outlaws", "Fool For The City", "Foghat Live!" and "Stone Blue", all rippin' good stuff. Sadly, Dave passed away from cancer on February 7th, 2000. Our advice? Go and turn up the volume on some Foghat this coming weekend, you'll be pleasantly surprised...
