    1967 Jefferson Airplane's psychedelic masterpiece "White Rabbit" entered the Billboard chart, where it eventually reached #8. The song became one of the first records to sneak drug references past radio censors. It uses imagery found in Lewis Carroll's 1865 book Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and its 1871 sequel Through the Looking-Glass, such as changing size after taking pills.

    1939 Delaney Bramlett, who co-fronted the early-'70s rock/soul ensemble Delaney & Bonnie with then-wife Bonnie Bramlett, is born in Pontotoc, Mississippi.

    1945 Deborah Ann Harry (lead singer of Blondie) is born in Miami, Florida, but will be raised in Hawthorne, New Jersey.

    1978 The Texxas Jam takes place at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas, Texas, with Aerosmith, Van Halen, Journey and Ted Nugent performing. 80,000 fans brave the 100 degree heat, cooled down by fire hoses brought in by the organizers. For Aerosmith, it marks a low point in their career as drug use and infighting are about to break up the band, and their performance suffers.
