A business marriage made in heaven!  Brian Epstein officially signs on as the Beatles manager. Their first meeting was later recreated in a film.
Jimi Hendrix makes his UK TV debut on Ready Steady Go!  Here’s an example of 1966 Hendrix.

In the first of series of farewell shows over the years, the Who does two nights at the Richfield Coliseum for their last US shows with drummer Kenney Jones.  Opening act is Little Steven and his band The Disciples Of Soul.  Before leaving for Toronto, Roger Daltrey and Kenney Jones visit sick kids at Cleveland’s Rainbow Babies and Children’s Hospital.  Here’s the Who’s show from Canada just a few days after the Cleveland shows.

Billed as a Christmas show, Chris Isaak played the Kent Stage in 2013
