Forty years ago today, July 25, 1965, Bob Dylan was joined by an electric band - - at the Newport Folk Festival. Suposedly booed for it by folk purists, Dylan may have actually been booed for the fact the sound was terrible and the group was underrehearsed.

Also, on this day in 1967, the Beatles put out an ad in a London newspaper calling for the legalization of marijuana in the United Kingdom. Even Dylan going electric went down better than that!

On yesterday's date in 1966, August 5, the Beatles released Revolver - regarded by many as their finest achievement - in the U.K. (It was released in the U.S., with three fewer songs, three days later.)

On this day in 1973, August 6, Stevie Wonder was riding in a car in North Carolina when it crashed on the highway, putting the famed musician in a coma that lasted quite awhile. He recovered quickly, and he then set about recording Fulfillingness's First Finale, the Wonder album Eddie Murphy calls "the good one."

Unhappy Jerry Garcia (1942-1995)

It was ten years ago today, August 9, 1995, that Grateful Dead leader and guitarist Jerry Garcia suddenly died at the age of 53. . . . Ironically, he was in a clinic.

The Grateful Dead officially broke up four months later.

On this day in 1978, August 14, the English-born Graham Nash took the oath of citizenship with several other immigrants, becoming an American citizen. David Crosby, celebrating his thirty-seventh birthday that day, looked on; later, the two men celebrated the double occasion with their families and enjoyed an all-American meal of hot dogs and hamburgers.

Here's a song Graham Nash wrote in 1972, after a nasty encounter with a couple of insolent customs officials at Los Angeles International Airport while he was still a British subject.

Immigration Man - Crosby and Nash

There I was, at the immigration scene,
Shining and feeling clean,
Would it be a sin?
I got stopped by the immigration man,
He says he doesn't know if he can let me in.

Let me in, immigration man.
Can I cross the line and pray
I can stay another day?
Won't you let me in, immigration man,
I won't tow your line today,
I can't see it anyway.

There he was, with his immigration face,
Giving me a paper chase,
But the sun was coming.
'Cause all at once he looked into my space,
Stamped a number over my face,
Then he sent me running.

Won't you let me in, immigration man,
Can I cross the line and pray
I can stay another day?
Won't you let me in, immigration man,
I won't toe your line today,
I can't see it anyway.

Now here I am with my immigration form,
It's big enough to keep me warm
When a cold wind's coming.
So go where you will,
As long as you think you can,
You better watch out, watch out for the man
Anywhere you're going.

Come on and let me in, immigration man,
Can I cross the line and pray?
Take your fingers from the tray.
Let me in, irritation man.
I won't tow your line today,
I can't see it anyway.

On this day a quarter century ago, August 25, 1980, the musical "42nd Street" opened on Broadway. Ironically, and tragically, the director, the esteemed Gower Champion, died earlier that day, which producer David Merrick announced to a stunned crowd on opening night.

On this day in 1968, September 14, Who leader Pete Townshend annoucned he was going to write a ninety-miniute suite of songs telling the story of a deaf, dumb, and blind boy who goes from being an ace pinball player to a religious leader. This "rock opera" would take its title from its main character. . . Tommy.

Thirty years ago today - September 15, 1975 - David Crosby and Graham Nash released their second album as a duo, Wind on the Water. It's still regarded as the duo's best work.

September 18, 1970:

Two very important events in rock and roll:

Jimi Hendrix died at from inhaling his own vomit after drinking wine with barbiturates at his London apartment. While Jimi's personal and professional life had taken a downturn in recent months, it was not believed that his death was a suicide. Many insiders felt he had suffered from extreme burnout. It was also possible that when ambulance aid crews carried him out, they blocked his breathing passages while carrying him out which hastened his death. Fans and musicians everywhere mourned the 27-year-old guitarist's premature passing.

Also on this day, Black Sabbath released their pivotal second album, Paranoid, which became the genre-defining album of heavy metal with hits such as War Pigs, Paranoid, Iron Man, Electric Funeral, Fairies Wear Boots and others. The album was originally going to be called War Pigs, in response to the Vietnam War, but the record company declined at the title. The anthemic title track was originally a throwaway track with was tacked on at the last minute when the band found it had a few minutes of space--it became an instant classic, one of the biggest rock songs of all time. The album cover made little sense with a man in full costume waving about a sword, but this was due to the album's original title, the man was a marauding warrior, but the change to Paranoid made the image connection puzzling. Iron Man became one of the heaviest songs of all time, and a staple for many aspiring guitarists to learn. The album stands the test of time with its ability to capture fear accompanied by a perfect electrifying guitar tone.
