Meet the new electric guitar that defines "cool, man"... -- Another streak for The Fab Four? But of course... --  Sessions for one of the '70's most classic albums gets underway...

1/6/1958 (62 years ago today) - Gibson introduces a new electric guitar line: the "Flying V" is unveiled and immediately becomes a mega-hit. It's impossible not to look aces, daddy-o, when playing one of these bad boys -- Just ask Albert Collins, Jimi Hendrix, Billy Gibbons, J. Geils, Marc Bolan of T. Rex, The Kinks' Dave Davies, Lenny Kravitz and Eddie Van Halen. Woof.

1/6/1968 (52 years ago today) - Here we go again indeed: The Beatles kick-off an eight-week run at No. 1 on the Billboard LP chart with "Magical Mystery Tour" -- It is their 11th U.S. chart-topping album in the last four years!!!

1/6/1975 (45 years ago today) - Pink Floyd convene at London's Abbey Road studios to start work on their ninth studio album: "Wish You Were Here" is released nine months later {that was all?!?!} in September, pretty quick work by today's standards when you consider how intricate and polished the end result was. Check out a rather nice live version here from David Gilmour:
