1973 Dr Hook And The Medicine Show got their picture on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine after their hit, 'The Cover of Rolling Stone' reached No. 6 on the US singles chart. According to members of the group, they really did buy five copies for their mothers, just like the song said.

1941 Graeme Edge of The Moody Blues is born in Staffordshire, England.

2015 Cynthia Lennon, first wife of The Beatles' John Lennon died at her home in Spain following a short battle with cancer. At the height of The Beatles' early success she was, at the insistence of the band's management, kept in the background so their legions of female fans were not aware of her existence. The couple divorced in 1968 after Cynthia discovered her husband's affair with Yoko Ono.

That was the very first LP I bought by any band other than the Beatles!

It wasn't released in the United Kingdom until 4 November 1966 though and had a different cover :



The U.K. version also had a slightly better track selection. While "Tell Me", "Good Times, Bad Times" and "Play With Fire" were not included in the U.K. version, a whopping five tracks were added:

Come On
Little Red Rooster
Paint It Black
Lady Jane
Have You Seen your Mother, Baby, Standing in the Shadow?
