RECORD RELEASED ON THIS DAY IN 1965

Image result for single like  a rolling stone

Image result for bob dylan in 1965

The Bob Dylan’s "Like a Rolling Stone" was recorded as
part of the sessions for the forthcoming album Highway
61 Revisited
. The song reached No. 2 in the Billboard
charts (No. 1 in Cashbox) and became a worldwide hit.

Critics have described the song as revolutionary in its
combination of different musical elements, the youthful,
cynical sound of Dylan’s voice, and the directness of the
question "How does it feel?" "Like a Rolling Stone"
completed the transformation of Dylan’s image from
folk singer to rock star, and is considered one of the
most influential compositions in postwar popular music.
(Wikipedia)

At an auction in 2014, Dylan’s handwritten lyrics to the
song fetched $2 million, a world record for a popular
music manuscript.

FILMS CHRACTER INSPIRATION DIES AT 79

Cronauer, Adrian Joseph
Adrian Cronauer (September 8, 1938 – July 18, 2018)

NORFOLK, Va. — The man whose military radio antics inspired a character
played by Robin Williams in the film "Good Morning, Vietnam" has died.

Adrian Cronauer died after a long illness. He had lived in Troutville, Virginia.

During his service as a U.S. Air Force sergeant in Vietnam in 1965 and 1966, Cronauer opened his Armed Forces Radio show with "Goooooood morning,
Vietnam!"  Williams made the refrain famous in the 1987 film, loosely based
on
Cronauer’s time in Saigon.
