    February 27, 1977

    Keith Richards was arrested at Toronto’s Harbour Castle Hotel, after an ounce of heroin was found following a raid of his hotel room by 15 Royal Canadian Mounted Police. Richards, who was charged with possession with intent to traffic, faced seven years to life in prison. Bail was set at $25,000 (14,705).

    The case was a delicate one, because Margaret Trudeau, wife of then-Prime Minster, Pierre Trudeau, was among those partying with the Stones at the time. A solution arrived when a blind woman, for whom Richards had often arranged rides to Stones concerts, approached the judge to vouch for his character. Richards was given a one year suspended sentence and a year's probation, and ordered to play a benefit concert for the blind.

    4th March 1966, John Lennon's statement that The Beatles were 'more popular than Jesus Christ' was published in The London Evening Standard. "Christianity will go. It will vanish and shrink. Were more popular then Jesus now; I dont know which will go first, rock n roll or Christianity. Jesus was alright, but his disciples were thick and ordinary." Christian groups in the US were outraged resulting in some states burning Beatles records. Lennon later apologised.

    March 6th 1982, Tight Fit were at No.1 on the UK singles chart with their version of The Tokens hit 'The Lion Sleeps Tonight.' It was first recorded by its writer, Solomon Linda, and his group, The Evening Birds, in 1939. In 2004, the song became the subject of a lawsuit between the family of its writer Solomon Linda and Disney. The suit claimed that Disney owed $1.6 million in royalties for the use of 'The Lion Sleeps Tonight' in the film and stage production of The Lion King. A settlement was reached for an undisclosed amount in 2006.

    8th March 2009, A blue plaque in honour of The Who drummer Keith Moon was unveiled on the site of the Marquee Club in Soho, London, where in 1964 the band played the first of 29 gigs there. Fans on scooters turned up to pay tribute to Moon, who was 32 when he died of an accidental overdose in 1978. The blue plaque, which means the site is of historic importance, was awarded by the Heritage Foundation. http://audioboo.fm/boos/1253955-this...usic-8th-march

    Plumber is a compulsive contrarian; He waits for someone to advocate for something, then his internal engine kicks on.. and he starts tearing it down.
