The album was No. 1 for two weeks on the Australian album chart […]

On Oct 29, 1967, during an American promotional tour, Pink Floyd appear on Dick Clark's American Bandstand. They lip-sync their sin@gle "See Emily Play," but singer Syd Barrett (Official) keeps his mouth shut throughout the "performance." Oh those crazy Floyd boys…..

In the song "Soul Man" by Sam && Dave, many people hear the words "I was educated at Woodstock". Nope. The song was released on Sept. 4, 1967, just about 2 years before the Woodstock festival, so it would make no sense for those words to be part of the lyrics. The actual lyrics for […]

The Monkees were scheduled to play in Detroit on July 29, 1967. The show had to be cancelled until Aug.13th because of rioting in Detroit. Here is a picture that is pretty self-explanitory. 1967 was the ‘Summer of Love’ in San Francisco. Not so much in other parts of the U.S. We will ask if […]
