April 8th

The Buffalo Springfield perform "Mr. Soul" (along with a 30-second excerpt from "For What It's Worth") on The Hollywood Palace. 

John Lennon takes his Rolls Royce to a car customizing shop in Surrey to have it painted in psychedelic colors.  He'll get it back about seven weeks later.  (Lennon first purchased the car on June 3, 1965 … and it sounds like it was Ringo who inspired him to have it painted after the two passed a fairground.)  Before the year's end, The Beatles would travel all over the British countryside in a psychedelically painted bus in their television special "Magical Mystery Tour".
