Elvis buys Graceland, The Beatles Dominate, and U2 wins a talent contest.
On this exciting episode of Follow the Sound’s “This Week in Music History”, we cover a wide and varied group of events. We start off the show with The Temptations auditioning for Motown and The Kingston Trio is nearly killed. From there we move onto Cliff Richard topping the UK charts and Bon Jovi forming. We also discuss Elvis buying and expanding Graceland in 1957 and The Beatles sell 2,100,000 advanced copies of ‘Can’t Buy Me Love’. We close out the show with a little story about murderer Richard Ramirez and U2 winning a talent show in 1978.
