On yesterday's date, September 30, Marc Feld was born. He later changed his named to Bolan, and formed Tyrannosaurus Rex, which later changed its name to. . . T-Rex!

Red face Sinead Disses the Pope!

On this day in 1992, October 3, Sinead O'Connor performed Bob Marley's "War," a song exhorting the achievement of social justice by taking up arms against the rich and the powerful, on "Saturday Night Live." As she reached the line about the triumph of "good over evil," she held up a picture of Pope John Paul II at the mention of evil, then violently tore it up. "Fight the real enemy!" she yelled.

The backlash literally began immediately. SNL guest host Joe Pesci, himself a Catholic, picked up the pieces of the Pope's picture and taped them together. Switchboards at NBC were flooded with calls denouncing the act, which SNL producer Lorne Michaels professed to know nothing about in advance.

Thirteen days later, O'Connor's attempt to perform Bob Dylan's "I Believe In You" at the Dylan tribute concert was ruined by jeers and boos from the audience. She performed an abridged version of "War" instead before running into Kris Kristofferson's arms in tears. Dylan himself stayed above the fray, much to the chagrin of the Pope's leftist critics.

Sinead O'Connor never had another U.S. hit. Imagine what would have happened, though, if she'd dissed the late Ayatollah Khomeini!

And so it was on this day in 1992, October 16, that the Bob Dylan tribute concert was held in Madison Square Garden. A sampling of hte set list includes:

"All Along the Watchtower" - Neil Young
"Absolutely Sweet Marie" - George Harrison
"When the Ship Comes In" - the Chieftains
"Highway 61 Revisited" - Johnny Winter
"Like A Rolling Stone" - John Mellencamp
"It Ain't Me Babe" - Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash

and so much more.

And of course, Sinead O'Connor got booed off the stage on this day, October 16, 1992 - fourteen years to the day after the election of Pope John Paul II - for tearing up his picture on American television. Last time I looked, she came out of retirement for the 354,685,435th time. Even she doesn't take herself seriosuly anymore.

On this day in 1964, October 25, the Rolling Stones performed for the first tiem on The Ed Sullivan Show. . . and caused a riot in the Ed Sullivan Theater. Sullivan vowed that he'd never present a rock and roll act on TV again. He was, of course, telling an untruth.

I mentioned this last year, but it's worth repeating because it's a significant anniversary. . . .

Thirty-five years ago today, Elton John's country-rock album Tumbleweed Connection was released in Engalnd. (It was released in the U.S. the following spring.)

On this day in 1965, November 5 - my date of birth - the Beatles completed their first deliberately scheduled late-night session, for the Rubber Soul album, which had started at 11:00 PM on November 4. (The session ended at 3:30 in the morning of November 5, the day the Brits celebrate as Guy Fawkes Day.) The song they recorded was "What Goes On," the first Beatles song to give Ringo Starr part credit as a composer. His contribution? "About five words," he's said.

Music Elton John: 11-17-70

Thirty-five years ago, November 17, 1970, Elton John perfromed a live radio concert on New York rock station WABC-FM (now pop station WPLJ-FM) which was engineered by a young man named Phil Ramone. Elton performed some of his own songs, along with the Beatles's "Get Back" and Elvis's "My Baby Left Me." The concert was released as an album the following year under the title 11-17-70.



Or 17-11-70, if you lived outside the United States, Canada, or the Philippines.

On this day in 1963, November 22, the Beatles were first shown on American television in a report o nthe CBS morning news. Also, With The Beatles, their second album, was released that day in Britain.

Then the focus shifted to Dallas, Texas, upon the news that shots were fired at President John F. Kennedy's motorcade. As the day unfolded, Kennedy would be dead. Beatlemania would soon lift a nation's spirits.

On this day in history - Thursday, November 24, 1966 - while the Beatles's American fans were celebrating Thanksgiving with their square Rat Pack-loving parents, the fabulous foursome entered Abbey Road Studios and began recording their follow-up to Revolver. The first recording they made was a single take of "Strawberry Fields Forever," originally intended for the new LP but eventually released as a single instead. The new album - begun under the working title One Down, Six To Go, a reference to their impending nine-year contract with EMI - would become. . .

Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band.

Crahn-berry sauce. . . .

Forty years ago today, November 25, 1965, Arlo Guthrie and a friend dumped some garbage along the side of a side road as a favor to a couple named Alice and Ray; Guthrie and his pal were caught and arrested for littering. Guthrie later used his criminal record to avoid the draft, and the experience led to the composing of his famous Thanksgiving song "Alice's Resataurant."
