“Brooklyn’s Own” Joe Causi has been around a few blocks, quite a few times — so when he’s got some music history for you, you’d better take heed.
Hi Guys, its Joe with another lesson in music history as we bring you a week of highs and lows, ups and downs… and everything else.
Can you imagine?!?!? It would be this week in 1967 — before there was cable TV, before we had satellite TV — when over 200 million people saw The Beatles perform ‘All You Need Is Love’, live via satellite as part of the TV global link-up, ‘Our World’.
Also on hand… Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Eric Clapton, Graham Nash, Keith Moon and Gary Leeds provided backing vocals.
Watch video of The Beatles’ performance HERE.
So what does she do, four days later, Cher married guitarist Gregg Allman, the couple split 10 days after that, got back together and split again.
I’m getting hives just thinking about it.
It happened this week in 1981, when one of the coolest recording fads would take place, called Stars on 45.
The record would go to number 1 on the US singles chart. The song featured a medley of Beatles songs set to a disco beat that would start of a flood of ‘Stars On’ hits including Stars on Stevie Wonder, Stars on Punk, Stars on Beach Boys and many more.
It’s one of the wildest and bizarre lawsuits ever. It would be this week in 1990, when 13-year-old Keith Sorrentino filed a half a million dollar lawsuit against Madonna, claiming he suffered nightmares and bed-wetting problems.
He said his problems started after an incident outside Madonna’s home when she allegedly flung him to the ground.
I’d like to have Madonna toss me… to the ground!
It would happen this week in 2004 one of the craziest things would take place at a Paul McCartney concert in Russia.
It seems organizers at the concert hired three jets to spray dry ice into the clouds so it wouldn’t rain during the concert.
Hey guys, didn’t you ever hear the phrase “Don’t fool with Mother Nature”?
