On this day in 1965, The Rolling Stones' "Get Off My Cloud" enjoyed two weeks at #1 on the US singles chart. The song took the place of "Yesterday" by the Beatles on the chart.
In 1967, Bob Dylan recorded "All Along the Watchtower," "John Wesley Harding," "As I Went Out One Morning," "I Pity The Poor Immigrant" and "I Am A Lonesome Hobo” for the album "John Wesley Harding."
In 1968, The Grateful Dead and Jefferson Airplane appeared for the opening night of San Francisco's Fillmore West venue.
In 1979, Paul Simon began his U.K. tour by getting drinks for each audience member in the Hammersmith Odeon in London. This ran up a tab of around $2,000.
In 2008 on this day, Daryl Hall and John Oates began a lawsuit against Warner/Chappell Music in the Manhattan Supreme Court on the grounds that the publisher hadn't done their due diligence to protect the copyright to the 1982 hit "Maneater," which had appeared on an unidentified singer's 2006 recording.
And in 2014, John Fogerty and Mary J. Blige were among the artists who performed at a concert that took place on the South Lawn of the White House, hosted by the Obamas. The gig was broadcast as A Salute to the Troops: In Performance at the White House, and one of the main points was Fogerty's performance of "Fortunate Son."
