1983 The Allman Brothers Band bassist Lamar Williams died of lung cancer age 34. He joined the band in 1972 after the death of original bassist Berry Oakley. His doctors believed that the disease was derived from exposure to Agent Orange during his Vietnam service. Opposed to the war and to killing in general, Williams went AWOL frequently and wandered around the jungles of South Vietnam, occasionally returning to various units. He was given an honorable discharge in 1970.

1966 The Trips Festival began at the Longshoreman's Hall in San Francisco. It was a three-day event with tens of thousands of people in attendance, featuring the Grateful Dead, Big Brother & the Holding Company, Jefferson Airplane and lots and lots of L..S..D... The weekend was a landmark event in the evolution of psychedelic music and is largely recognized as the first to bring together what would be called the "hippie" movement.

2020 After several months of struggle to obtain his dual citizenship, Canadian born Neil Young finally became an American citizen. He celebrated the event by posting a video on his Instagram, singing "I'm proud to be a Canarican" to the tune of "God Bless the U.S.A." while waving miniature flags of both countries. Young entered the United States illegally in 1966, driving a Pontiac hearse.
