From The Examiner:

On this day in 1964 The Beatles’ The Beatles Second Album sets a record by reaching number one on the Billboard chart just one week after its release. For the first time in a year, The Beatles are bumped from the number one spot on the UK chart, by The Rolling Stones' debut album.

Business Lessons in Rock article:

It was 50 years ago this month that the the Beatles’ grip on the #1 spot was finally broken by Louis Armstrong’s “Hello, Dolly!”—a great reminder that most of the artists who had major chart success after the Beatles’ arrival had more talent and substance than the ones before (at least since the demise of early rock & roll in 1959). Somehow Satchmo, Mary Wells, the Supremes, and Roy Orbison managed to survive the Beatles’ onslaught. Yes, many decent soul and pop acts were crowded out of the Hit Parade by the British Invasion—and probably had their careers shortened. But one could argue (and I do) that the fittest survived. In the years that followed, the fittest included Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, and Smoky Robinson and the Miracles. Credit The Beatles and the survivors.

Yesterday was the 50th anniversary of Jimmy Nicol's first concert as a temporary Beatle, in Copenhagen.

So funny to me that they felt the need to give him a Beatle haircut for the occasion.

Is your colony going to be on the moon, Venus, or Mars? According to your musings, if you are still on this planet, you will be discoverable. 

My colony is on Venus And Mars! Hoo Hoo Hoo, Hee Hee Hee, Ha Ha Ha! (That's a Paul joke!)

P.S. can't wait for the 50 year theatrical re-release of A Hard Day's Night! Love it!a-hard-days-night-john-6a-hard-days-night-john-6a-hard-days-night-john-6

Link to a 9 1/2 minute documentary on Jimmie Nicol. Wasn't sure where else to put this since we don't have a thread on him, and I don't know if there's enough interest to start one.

I don't think so. No offense to Jimmie, but there isn't enough people interested in the drummer of the Beatles for a few weeks. As soon as he left, he fell apart. It's just not reasonable.
