On this day in music history, June 1:

1971: The two-room shack in Tupelo, Mississippi, where Elvis Presley was born on January 8, 1935 was opened to the public as a tourist attraction.

1972: At Abbey Road Studios in London, Pink Floyd began recording their album Dark Side of the Moon.

1973: Former Soft Machine drummer Robert Wyatt broke his spine after attempting to leave a party by climbing down a drainpipe and falling three stories. It left Wyatt permanently crippled and confined to a wheelchair.

1975: The Rolling Stones kicked off their biggest ever U.S. tour at Louisiana State University. The tour would take in 45 shows in 26 cities. Guitarist Ron Wood joined The Stones on tour for the first time, replacing Mick Taylor.

1977: Bob Marley and The Wailers played the first of four nights at the Rainbow Theatre in London. There were six nights booked at the Rainbow, but the last two shows were cancelled due to a serious toe injury Marley received, (in a friendly football game with French journalists just before the tour's start in Paris). Subsequently the tour's second leg in the United States was postponed and then cancelled.

Forty-five years ago today, Casey Kasem launched his radio show "American Top 40" on seven Top Forty radio stations, despite the decline of Top Forty radio in favor of album-oriented rock radio (which is currently declining). The number-one hit single for the week ending Saturday, July 4, 1970 was Three Dog Night's recording of "Mama Told Me (Not To Come)," Randy Newman's only number-one hit as a songwriter.

It was fifty-eight years ago today, in 1957 that 16 year old, John Lennon met 15-year-old Paul McCartney. It was at St. Peter’s, Woolton’s Parish Church in Liverpool; John was playing with the Quarry Men at a church fete, come garden party.

Paul had gone along to the Saturday afternoon fete with his mate, Ivan Vaughan to watch John’s skiffle group, the Quarry Men. The group was made up of Eric Griffiths, Colin Hanton, Rod Davis, John Lennon, Pete Shotton and Len Garry. The group took their name from Quarry Bank High School, where they all went to school.

July 7 - two British drummers born today! The Beatles' Ringo Starr (born 1940, 75 today) and Family's Rob Townsend (born 1947, 68 today). Both joined their respective groups and replaced earlier drummers (Pete Best and Harry Ovenall, respectively) just before the groups began their recording careers.

On this day in music history, August 1:

1965: The Beatles performed at the ABC Theatre in Blackpool, where they played "Yesterday:" live for the first time.

1981: MTV debuted; the first video it played, with some smugness, was the promotional clip for the Buggles' 1979 single "Video Killed the Radio Star."

On this day, August 16, Beatles manager Brian Epstein called Pete Best, the drummer for the Beatles, into his office to let him know he was fired. It was the band's decision, but they made Eppy break the bad news to Pete. Richard Starkey -better known as Ringo Starr - replaced him. Thus the Beatles as the world knows them was formed.

On this day in history, on August 18, 1962, the Beatles played for the first time with Ringo on drums at Hulme Hall on the outskirts of Liverpool's central business district. Their first Cavern date with Ringo shortly thereafter led to a riot caused by angry Pete Best fans, which resulted in George Harrison getting a black eye.
