Here’s what happened today in Rock History for November 6th:
During their first promotional visit to the UK, The Beach Boys appeared live on TV’s Ready Steady Go!
After the success of “Satisfaction”, The Rolling Stones top the Billboard Hot 100 for the second time with “Get Off of My Cloud”. Keith Richards would later say, “I never dug it as a record. The chorus was a nice idea, but we rushed it as the follow-up.”
Cher scored her first solo US number one hit with “Gypsys, Tramps and Thieves”, a song that reached #4 in the UK. It had been four years since she last appeared on the Billboard singles chart with “You Better Sit Down, Kids”.
The Steve Miller Band scored their second US number one hit, “Rock’n’ Me”.
