November 14th

The Monkees earn a gold record for "Daydream Believer," which hasn't even hit The Top Ten yet!  This afternoon, Peter Tork and Davy Jones will come to fisticuffs as, according to Peter, "we were getting on each other's nerves."  Davy ended up in Cedars Of Lebanon Hospital for stitches, however, so it sounds rather serious in hindsight. 

Barney Kilgore died.  He is credited as being the visionary who made "The Wall Street Journal" a national newspaper … and has been credited as "the man who invented modern journalism". 

Pink Floyd (hot on the heels of their new album) begin their first tour of the UK with a kick-off concert at Royal Albert Hall as an opening act for The Jimi Hendrix Experience.  Also on the bill are The Move, Nice, Amen Corner, Eire Apparent and The Outer Limits.  The tour will continue for a total of 16 dates throughout the UK.
