This Day in Rock History: March 11th

Time to take a look back into this day in rock history: March 11

15-year old Fabian Forte is voted “The Most Promising New Talent” in an American Bandstand viewer’s poll.  He’s at the top of the charts with “Turn me loose”.
People are still trying to figure this one out.  Jean-Luc Godard’s One Plus One opens in theaters.  It focuses on the Rolling Stones recording “Sympathy for the Devil” with a lot of extra clips that don’t seem to fit in.  The movie is recut with more Stones and renamed after the song.
James Darren voices the character “James Darrock” in an episode of ABC’s The Flintstones titled “Surfin’ Fred”.
Paul McCartney marries Linda Eastman at the Marylebone Registry Office, in the City of Westminster, London.  No other Beatles in attendance, but Paul’s brother Mike is best man.
Elvis Presley stars in his 29th film in Charro!  It’s the only film where Presley does not sing on screen.


The Kinks are celebrating a resurgence with an appearance at Cleveland’s Case Western Reserve University.

Not one of John Lennon’s stellar moments. The former Beatle and Harry Nilsson get thrown out of the Troubador night club in Los Angeles during his “lost weekend days” after heckling the Smothers Brothers. As Nilsson recalled it, “”It ruined my reputation for ten years. Get one Beatle drunk and look what happens.”


Robert Cray sings he’s “back here in Kent” at his 2015 show.
