6/30/1966 (51 years ago today) - Another in a long line of reasons why they wanted to stop touring: The Beatles play the first of three concerts at the Budokan in Japan with 3,000 police officers(!) lined up and ready for each performance to handle the sold -out crowds of 10,000 per show -- When they weren't onstage, J P G & R were essentially "locked up" in their hotel suites: No Sight-Seeing, No Dining Out, No Nuthin'! No more fun either, life on the road has officially become a drag...

6/30/1973 (44 years ago today) - Paul McCartney & Wings' "My Love" has to move on down...: George Harrison knocks his fellow ex-band mate out of the No. 1 spot on the U.S. singles chart with "Give Me Love, Give Me Peace On Earth" -- It's George's second chart-topping single as a solo artist; "My Sweet Lord" was first, having spent four weeks at No. 1 in late 1970 -- FYI: "Lord" was also No. 1 in 15 other countries!!!

6/30/1976 (41 years ago today) - Police raid the home of Neil Diamond searching for drugs. They find...less than an ounce of marijuana. Your law enforcement heroes hard at work, again.
