The Monkees win big today at the National Association of Record Merchandisers Awards (NARM) Ceremony, besting The Beatles for most "calculated sales" for best selling album, best selling single and best selling American vocal group. (Not bad for a bunch of actors pretending to be musicians!) The group is in the studio this evening working on "You Told Me" and "I'll Spend My Life With You" for their next album.
The Beatles begin recording "It's Getting Better" for their new album.
In the wee hours of the morning, Elvis Presley falls in the bathroom, causing yet another delay in the filming of his next motion picture, "Clambake".
