Good Vibrations
by The Beach Boys
What with the ghostly sound of the 'Electro-theremin' and the extra complex harmony interchanges, us 12 year old schoolkids had heard nothing like this before. A very landmark moment in the development of my personal music tastes, I became a little obsessed about listening to 'The Beach Boys' whenever I could. For a while.

'The Beach Boys':
:: Before being known as 'The Beach Boys', they had called themselves 'The Pendletones'. ...
:: They had friends in high places (Ronald Reagan was a big fan, and once stepped in when authorities tried to ban one of their gigs in 1983). ...
:: Two members had to get restraining orders against each other (Mike Love and Dennis Wilson). ...
:: One executive was fired after "capturing Brian Wilson's soul" (When the man sat down and painted a portrait of him, Wilson freaked out about it). ...
:: Brian Wilson is deaf in one ear (He lost almost all of the hearing in his right ear as a young child. The resulting percentage of hearing had since been described as "meagre").

In #1966 :
The following people are born:
Mike Tyson (US former heavweight boxing champion) - June 30th. ...

1966 - Capitol Records - United States - Not blocked anywhere

For a few years in the 1960s, London was the world capital of cool, reflecting all things hip and fashionable which had been growing in the popular British imagination throughout the decade. Music was also a huge part of London's swing - Liverpool had 'The Beatles' and the London sound was a mix of bands like 'The Who', 'The Kinks', the 'Small Faces' and 'The Rolling Stones'. Hopefully, you'll catch a flavour of all this from my posts here.
