1978. Bob Dylan arrives in Tokyo for his first ever Japanese tour. The press conference at the airport turns into a farce with most of the questions being in Japanese. This YouTube clip gives a taste of the craziness.

He had been remanded in custody after an earlier hearing for reports.

Record Mirror from 17th February 1973. A copy taken from Rockmine’s almost complete run of U.K. music papers from the last 45 years. It’s a fascinating mix that we don’t see in music papers today. There is almost something for everyone. A full page interview with Ron Wood talking about The Faces, Eric Clapton’s comeback concert and designing the cover to Long John Baldry’s new album. You turn the page and you’re faced with a whole page of Mummy and Daddy Osmond bragging about their kids! I better put it down or I’ll sit reading the whole of the paper.

From the Rockmine Almanac for today (Saturday 16th February):

Birth

1935. Sonny Bono born Salvatore Philip Bono in Detroit, Michigan.

On Tour

1998. The Rolling Stones wind up the North American leg of their world tour with a gig at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas in front of 400 up-market guests.

He is held for 38 hours at the airport’s Rest House Hotel before bureaucrats allow him to continue his promotional tour. The trouble stems from a 22 year old drug conviction which strangely didn’t cause any problem during tours of Japan in 1988 and 1990.

Daily Babble
 
One of the most enjoyable tasks I have every day is looking for a clip to illustrate the On Television part of the blog. I’ve been collecting rock video since about 1982 when I got a Phillips 1500 VCR. Over the years I built up the collection of tapes and machines to play them on. At one time, I had 9 different formats of machine ranging from 1/2 inch black and white reel-to-reel to U-matic. I’ve still got about 7,000 hours of stuff that I have started to digitize but nowadays what’s the point when there’s YouTube?
 
I’ve had today’s clip for years as an optical copy of a Betamax NTSC tape. The tape was played on a multi-standard machine and TV with a video camera set up in front of it to get a PAL copy to be swapped and watched! Crazy days. A lot of tapes from the period were unwatchable, faded vague images appearing out of a green fog only to disappear again a few moments later. 
 
Some years back, there was a sudden surge in bootleg DVDs to be found in record shops and markets. I bought dozens of them, eager to get decent copies of long held treasures but it seemed that was never going to last for long. When people got broadband, there was little point in them buying discs when they could download them for free and now you don’t even need to bother with that. Rock video on tap whenever you want, wherever you are. It’s either wonderful or the end of civilization as we know it. I don’t know which.
 
What I do know is that I found something I’d been searching for a decent copy of for SO many years – Rick Wakeman’s “King Arthur On Ice”. Strangely, I don’t remember it looking so naff when I saw it on TV!

From the Rockmine Almanac for today (Friday 15th February):

Birth

1941. Songwriter Brian Holland (Holland, Dozier, Holland) born in Detroit, Michigan.

On Tour

1968. Beatles John Lennon and George Harrison, with their wives, travel to Rishikesh, India, to study Transcendental Meditation with the Maharishi. Paul McCartney with Jane Asher, and Ringo Starr with his wife, Maureen, follow on the 19th. Ringo and Maureen leave after only 10 days, bored with the routine and sick of the food. Paul and Jane leave on March 26. John, George and their wives leave on April 12, following an accusation (now thought to be untrue) that the Maharishi was attempting to seduce Mia Farrow, another acolyte.

In Court

1971. Four members of The Tremeloes (Leonard Hawkes, David Munden, Richard Westwood and Alan Blakely), their road manager (Roy Farrant) and a former manager (James Walsh) are fined a total of £ 10,000 at Uxbridge Magistrates Court after pleading guilty to keeping guitars, amplifiers, drums and speaker cabinets on which customs duty had not been paid. The charges date back to March 12th, 1968 when the equipment was found at an address in Southampton Place, Bloomsbury, London. The band had bought the gear during their 1968 tour of North and South America but had told customs officials that everything had been bought in Britain. Unfortunately, during a search of their then manager’s bags, a receipt was found for the goods. Customs officers then began an investigation which led to the discovery of the Bloomsbury address. It’s estimated that the amount of unpaid duty amounted to £ 917! Each of the band members was fined £ 2,000, as was their road manager. Their former manager pleaded not guilty and that case against him was dismissed but he did admit avoiding duty on two amplifiers and was fined £ 300. Munden also admitted another two offences and was fined £ 300 for avoiding duty on a wristwatch and £ 250 for a cine camera. Hawkes was fined £ 200 for avoiding duty on a rhythm recorder.

Her neat, trim, size 8 shape provides the best possible lines for “rear” attractiveness”. Suzi won against stiff competition. Among her nine challengers were Toyah Wilcox, Kim Wilde and Sheena Easton.

On seeing the boys in blue carrying a search warrant, he let them re-arrange the furniture for a while before accompanying them to Chelsea Police Station. According to an official statement, a tear gas cannister was found during the course of their search. Lydon, who described the “cannister” as the size of a felt-tip pen will have to return to the station on March 14th, by which time the spray will have been analysed.

From the Rockmine Almanac for today (Monday 11th February):

Birth

1962. Sheryl Crow born in Kennett, Missouri. Before making a career for herself as a solo artist, she works as a backing singer for a variety of acts, including Don Henley and Michael Jackson.

On Tour

1964. The Beatles travel from New York to Washington, D.C. by train, during a blizzard, for their first concert in the United States. In the evening, they perform for 8,092 fans at the Washington Coliseum. The set list is: “Roll Over Beethoven”, “From Me to You”, “I Saw Her Standing There”, “This Boy”, “All My Loving”, “I Wanna Be Your Man”, “Please Please Me”, “Till There Was You”, “She Loves You”, “I Want to Hold Your Hand”, “Twist and Shout”, and “Long Tall Sally”. The support acts are Tommy Roe, the Caravelles, and the Chiffons.
  
 
The stage was situated in the middle of the auditorium and, as a result, the band had to stop three times and turn Ringo’s drum kit around and move their microphones so that each part of the audience would get to face the group. The concert was filmed and later transmitted as a closed-circuit broadcast to theaters in March minus the closing number, “Long Tall Sally”. After their performance at the Coliseum, The Beatles attend a reception at the British Embassy, which turns out to be an unpleasant experience. At one point a woman even sneaks up behind Ringo and cuts off a lock of his hair.

In Court

2000. Geri Halliwell appears at the High Court in London to give evidence in the case brought by Italian motorcycle company, Aprilia, against The Spice Girls. Appearing before Mrs. Justice Arden, Halliwell told the court that leaving The Spice Girls was like leaving a marriage, saying, “… there wasn’t one defining moment when I consciously made that decision”. Aprilia are suing the group for £ 1.6 million which they claim they lost as a result of Miss Halliwell leaving the group. The company had signed a contract with the group to bring out a range of “Spice Sonic” scooters featuring photographs of all five group members. Aprilia contests that the group entered into the contract knowing Miss Halliwell would leave and their scooters would instantly become “a total marketing flop”. After she left the court, a spokesman for the 27 year old former Ginger Spice, said that Miss Halliwell was not a party in the case and had volunteered as a witness “to help out the girls”. The group is countering with another suit claiming £ 212,000 in unpaid sponsorship and royalties. The case continues.

In Hospital

2001. Johnny Cash is admitted to the Baptist Hospital in Nashville, with pneumonia. He’s described as being in a “serious but stable” condition, later in the day. Cash was hospitalized with the illness for two weeks in 1999 and twice in 1998.

On Television

1967. “Juke Box Jury” (U.K.) broadcasts part of the promo video for The Beatles‘ next single, “Penny Lane” which is released in the U.K. on February 17th.

Paramedics later pronounced him dead at the arena. One of the wounded was hospitalised with a serious stomach injury.

I admit it, I’ve gone a bit scan-crazy! The office looks like a battle zone and I’ve done the worst thing possible. I opened a 1968 New Musical Express. The TV listings were calling to me, I really couldn’t help it – and then I just got carried away. Before long, I was taking listings from 1969. Well, at least I’ll have my TV database finished earlier than I though…
 
As a result of the publicity I got for putting the John Lennon Lawson Memorial Hospital autograph up for sale, I’ve been contacted by another person with a signed postcard. That now makes four which have turned up! This one’s of Ben Loyal and is once again signed by John and Yoko without any annotation. I’ll be contacting them this week and will hope to get to see this one as it’s only a few hours drive away.

Smith and Parry counter with the statement that Tolhurst has made “minimal” contributions to the two albums prior to his sacking from the band in 1989.

In Hospital

2002. Jay Dee Dougherty, drummer with the Patti Smith Group, is injured in a motorcycle accident in New York. He’s hit head-on by a car in Lower Manhattan and taken to the city’s Bellevue Hospital.

Birth

1949. Alan Lancaster (Status Quo) born in London, England.

On Tour

1980. Pink Floyd‘s “The Wall” tour opens at the Los Angeles Sports Arena. The show is delayed for a short while after fireworks set fire to some curtains.

In Court

1995. Tupac Shakur is sentenced to between 18 months and four-and-a-half years in prison when he appears in Manhattan Supreme Court on charges of sexual assault against a 21 year old female. Shakur’s road manager, Charles Fuller, is jailed for four months and also given five years probation for a sexual abuse charge. Both men escaped the more serious charge of forcibly sodomising the woman. The charges relate to an incident in a Manhatten hotel suite on November 18th, 1993. During the trial, the woman told how she cried hysterically as one man tore off her clothes and forced her to the floor and pleaded for mercy as the others took turns forcing her to perform sex acts. She said, “I was a victim of these men who set upon me like animals”.
 
Handing down the harsher sentence to Shakur, Judge Daniel Fitzpatrick said he, “… must bear the full responsibility. He was the instigator and showed an arrogance towards others”. In reply, Shakur said he was innocent of the charges but went on to apologize to the youth of America, adding he’d done nothing wrong and felt no shame. He also attacked the judge for never looking into his eyes, saying “I always felt you had something against me”. After the trial, the rapper’s lawyers said they are preparing an appeal.

In Hospital

1969. George Harrison is admitted into London’s University College Hospital, where his tonsils are to be removed the following day. He will return home on the 15th.

On Television

1999. “The South Bank Show” (U.K.) – U.B. 40

Death

2000. Peurto Rican rapper Big Pun (real name Christopher Rios) collapses at the Crowne Plaza Hotal in White Plains, New York with a suspected heart attack. Despite being rushed to hospital, he’s pronounced “dead on arrival”. It’s understood the rapper, who weighed 698 pounds, had suffered health problems related to his extreme obesity.

Daily Babble
 
Work on the rebuilding of my TV listings goes on. This month’s MacFormat magazine was good enough to point out that Microsoft Office 2008 for Mac does not handle macros, so I’ll have to stick with older versions to deal with my method of dating events. Big hassle with that is there’s a maximum of 64,000 entries on one spreadsheet and that isn’t going to be big enough for everything.
 
Good news is, I added 14 shows that had never made it to my master TV list. They were mainly British shows but I’ve still to find my “Sunday Night At The London Palladium”, “Thank Your Lucky Stars” and “Juke Box Jury” lists. I thought I’d go back to my trusty 5″ X 3″ card indexes but all that’s done is throw up other shows I’ve forgotten about. Things like “6.55 Special” and “Friday Night… Saturday Morning”. I even came across a card for Dory Previn being interviewed by “the thinking man’s crumpet”, Joan Bakewell on “Newsnight” in 1982. So, I better add “Newsnight” to my list.
 
I’ve pulled out a swathe of cards that list everything that was played during two series of what may well be the best radio show ever: “Peel’s Pleasures”. I MUST listen to the tapes again. One features The Bonzos, Loudon Wainwright, Ben the talking dog, Lt. Commander Tommy Woodroffe giving live commentary on the illumination of the fleet, The Marauders live at The Cavern and a taxidermist talking about stuffing an elephant! That’s real entertainment.
 
You may have noticed that I’ve dropped my daily music paper front page. I bought a new A3 scanner to tackle the job on Tuesday. Tried it yesterday and it didn’t work! I’ll take it back to the store but it may be a few days before that’s up and running. 
 
Anyway, I better get back to my listings….
