Wild Thing!



On April 1st, 1966 The Troggs recorded 'Wild Thing' at Regent Sound Studio in London. The song went on to be a No.1 hit in the US and No.2 UK hit in June the following year. The track was recorded in one complete take. Wild Thing is still a classic today.



And of course on this day 1970 as an April fool's joke John Lennon and Yoko Ono issued a statement to the press that they were having dual sex change operations. 


And a moment I will never forget when Marvin Gaye was shot dead by his father at his parent's home in Los Angeles, California. The argument started after his parents squabbled over misplaced business documents, Gaye attempted to intervene and was killed by his father using a gun he had given him four months before. Marvin Sr. was sentenced to six years of probation after pleading guilty to manslaughter. Charges of first-degree murder were dropped after doctors discovered Marvin Sr. had a brain tumor.


Oh Susanna Hoffs how I was so in love with you, and on April 1st, 1989 Eternal Flame hit #1. This song was never my favorite but you can not beat the lyrics. 


And how could we forget in 2017 after months of uncertainty and controversy, Bob Dylan finally accepted the 2016 Nobel Prize in literature at a jovial, champagne-laced ceremony. The academy, which awards the coveted prize, ended prolonged speculation as to whether the 75-year-old troubadour would use a concert stopover in Stockholm to accept the gold medal and diploma awarded to him back in October.
