This Day in Music History

Elvis – Photo by Keystone

September 22nd

1958Elvis Presley gives one last press conference in Brooklyn at the Military Ocean Terminal, with special permission from the Army. He then joined the rest of the 3rd Armored Division on the USS General Randall for a voyage to Bremerhaven, Germany. He had enlisted earlier in the year because he was convinced his musical career was over.

1969Stevie Wonder, Tom Jones, Cass Elliot, James Brown, and Sly and the Family Stone are just a few of the performances booked for a new weekly TV show ‘The Music Scene’ which aired today on ABC for the first time. Surprisingly, despite the level of talent presented, this show did not fare well in the ratings and was cancelled mid-season.

1979Jackson Browne, Chaka Khan, Bruce Springsteen, and Tom Petty, appeared at Madison Square Garden, New York for an anti-nuclear benefit concert.

1999Diana Ross was arrested after an incident at Heathrow Airport. The singer had rubbed her hands up and down a security guard, but claimed that a female security guard had touched her breasts while being frisked.
