SG’s Very Own: This Day in Music


On this day in 1966 (actually yesterday Aug 8):
In response to John Lennon’s remark about The Beatles being bigger than Jesus, The South African Broadcasting Corporation banned all Beatles records.
The Beatles also released their album, Revolver, in the US on this day. It spent 77 weeks on the Billboard chart, peaking at #1.

Also on this day  (Aug 8) in 1969:
The photo session for the cover of The Beatles ‘Abbey Road’ album took place on the crossing outside Abbey Road studios. Photographer Iain McMillan, balanced on a step-ladder in the middle of the road took six shots of John, Ringo, Paul, and George walking across the zebra crossing while a policeman held up the traffic. The band then returned to the studio and recorded overdubs on ‘The End’, ‘I Want You (She’s So Heavy)’ and ‘Oh! Darling’.

On another note:

Check out Atmosphere’s song Guns and Cigarettes. Laden with references to the occasion, they say there gonna be “bigger than jesus and bigger than wrestling, bigger than The Beatles and bigger than breast implants”.
