February 17th

1967The Beatles started recording a new John Lennon song ‘Being For the Benefit of Mr. Kite’ at Abbey Road studios, London. John’s lyrics for the song came almost entirely from an antique poster advertising a circus performance scheduled to take place in Rochdale, Lancashire, in February 1843. John had purchased the poster in Sevenoaks on January 31 while The Beatles were on location for the filming of the ‘Strawberry Fields Forever’ promotional film.

1971 - Tonight on The Johnny Cash Show, James Taylor is unveiled to prime-time audiences. He performs “Fire and Rain” and “Carolina on My Mind.”

1989 – David Coverdale married actress Tawny Kitaen (known for her provocative appearances in Whitesnake’s music videos ‘Here I Go Again, ‘Is This Love’ and ‘Still of the Night’). The couple divorced in 1991.

2004 - Don Henley of the Eagles attacks the music industry in a Washington Post editorial. “When I started in the music business, music was important and vital to our culture,” he grumbles. “Record labels signed cutting-edge artists, and FM radio offered an incredible variety of music. Music touched fans in a unique and personal way. Our culture was enriched and the music business was healthy and strong. That’s all changed.”
