This date in Rock and Roll history.

1966. At a Beatles press conference in Chicago to promote their American tour, the big topic is John Lennon's quote, "We're more popular than Jesus now; I don't know which will go first, rock 'n' roll or Christianity." Lennon, clearly shaken by the controversy, explains: "I was pointing out that fact in reference to England - that we meant more to kids than Jesus did, or religion, at that time. I wasn't knocking it or putting it down, I was just saying it as a fact."

1966. The Beatles begin the US leg of their last tour, playing a date at the International Amphitheater in Chicago, Illinois.

What a kerfuffle that was! There was much debate around the water pipe that evening.
