The Beatles’ “Ticket To Ride” Goes to Number One!

On This Date, May 22nd in 1965: The Beatles went to number one on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart for the eighth time with “Ticket to Ride”, which spent one week on top. “Ticket to Ride” was featured in The Beatles awesome movie Help!, which I saw for the first time when I was five years old, and which is still one of my favorite movies of all time! The Beatles!

Happy Birthday, Morrissey!

Andy, Johnny, Morrissey and Mike – The Smiths!

Morrissey (born Steven Patrick Morrissey), singer for The Smiths and worldwide Gay Icon was born on this day, May 22nd, in 1959. If you pay attention to this blog at all, or if you were lucky enough to know me back in the eighties, then you don’t need to be reminded of how important The Smiths were to me back in the day. I was so gay for them. Interviewing Smiths’ guitarist Johnny Marr was definitely one of the highlights of my life and career. Later on, I am going to play The Queen is Dead over and over until my eardrums cry out for mercy. Happy Birthday, Mozz!
