Tommy’s Coffee Break Calendar for July 22nd
7/22/1965 (55 years ago today) - Hey, at least they used their zippers: The East Ham Magistrates Court of London declares Mick Jagger, Brian Jones and Bill Wyman guilty of "insulting behavior" and fines them a hundred bucks apiece -- Apparently, after the three Rolling Stones were denied use of the bathroom facilities at a roadside service station, the boys decided to urinate against the wall right there! We're assuming they couldn't wash their hands either...
7/22/1971 (49 years ago today) - It took 'em two days to film this. TWO DAYS!?!?: John Lennon and Yoko Ono wrap up video work on their 'promotional clip' for "Imagine" at the couples luxurious home in Tittenhurst Park, Ascot, England -- Filming involves following the two around the grounds as they stroll through the morning mist, and the now-classic footage of John singing "Imagine" in a white room on his white piano. Iconic song, no doubt, but how long should it take to film this stuff, really?
7/22/1947 - Happy Birthday Eagles singer-songwriter-drummer Don Henley, 73 years old today and certainly one of rock's most distinctive and talented vocalists. Legend has it he knocked up Stevie Nicks once. Excellent chops here:
