Today in music history:
There were several significant events on this day between the years 1940 and 2001.
On this day in 1940 Clarence Satchell, future musician for The Ohio Players, is born in the US.
On this day in 1964 Ringo Starr famously tells the other Beatles after a long day of filming their first movie, that it's been "a hard day's night." (John Lennon turns the phrase into a song and the movie title is changed from Beatlemania! to A Hard Day's Night.)
On this day in 1969 The Beatles are in the studio working on the song “The Ballad of John and Yoko.”
