Tommy’s Coffee Break Calendar for January 14th
1/14/1966 (54 years ago today) - To coincide with the release of his latest single "Can't Help Thinking About Me", David Jones changes his name to David Bowie to avoid being confused with The Monkees' Davy Jones. Later on he would claim he chose the name "Bowie" because he liked "that big American bear-killin' knife"...
1/14/1967 (53 years ago today) - Maybe the best name ever for an outdoor rock festival: Over 25,000 attend The Human Be-In -- A Gathering Of The Tribes at San Francisco's Golden Gate Park featuring The Grateful Dead, Jefferson Airplane, Quicksilver Messenger Service and Big Brother & The Holding Company. It doesn't get more Sixties than that, man!
