    Or more specifically a Zeppelin roadie with the event reportedly being filmed by a member of Vanilla Fudge (everyone else who was there - from both bands - were just spectators), a groupie and a 'yelloweye rockfish'. There were mudsharks present, but they were not involved - rather they were merely hung in closets with hangers through their gills.

    In the words of the everlasting Johnny Carson "I did not know that" thanks for posting some cool ELVIS history.Although I am surprised they haven't come after you brandishing torches,pitch forks,noose&weapons of mass destruction.Around here some believe that if it doesnt fit their criteria of what they assume to know then it obviously didn't happen.Peace.

    Oh, give it up! It has nothing to do with information fitting with what folks assume they know. It has everything to do with a failure to cite sources or present evidence to backup claims - especially when those claims contradict an entire body of known evidence. Simply saying, "I was there & I remember," isn't evidence no matter how much you want it to be. The fact that you took an obvious joke (the Elvis TV remote) as a piece of "trivia" proves your ability to parse out evidence.

    Are you sure the Stones were the first to own their own record label?

    Definitely not. Earlier examples abound. The Beatles, Frank Sinatra, Ray Charles and Bob Marley & the Wailers come to mind...

    However, the Stones were the first band to own a record company named after themselves, I think.

    The first “use” of it in record was definitely the Beatles with I Feel Fine. But recordings of feedback go back much earlier:

    The time has come for me to remind myself of a favorite quote by Mark Twain & leave you to your own "knowledge."
