    Nashville. Billboard: (page 46) ‘Music As Written’ ‘Minaret Signs Casuals’:
    NASHVILLE—Herb Shucher of Minaret Records, has announced the signing of the Casuals to a recording contract on the Minaret label. The Casuals were the mainstay of Brenda Lee’s personal appearances the past three and a half years*, leaving her recently to go it on their own [again. Ed]. The group will cut a Minaret session as soon as they finish their month's stay at the Flamingo Hotel Las Vegas. Minaret is distributed by Starday Records.
    *They already had an independent career from 1956 “Nashville’s first rock and roll band” and were famous in their own right. No one was going to use the same name as them in Nashville, especialy Starday records. It would be like calling your band ‘the Beatles’ in Liverpool, after they were in the charts!

    MARCH 1963
    The Scene club, Ham Yard, London is opened by Ronan O’Rahilly, with connections to UK pirate radio ship ‘Caroline’, manager of Georgie Fame and Zoot Money. Pete Townshend, "The Scene was really where it was at, but there were only about fifteen people down there every night. It was a focal point for the mod movement. I don't think anyone who was a mod outside Soho realised the fashions and dances all began there."

    Early March? 1963
    Nashville, ‘New Era’ club, Tennessee, USA
    According to MC-singer (Odell) "Gorgeous" George, after notifying the public here that he was looking for a guitar player he recruited Hendrix and joined one of Henry Wynn’s “Supersonic Attractions” tours of the South with Aretha Franklin “the New Queen of the Blues” and Hank Ballard & the Midnighters. Hendrix becomes part of Gorgeous George's back-up band and later plays with the Midnighters.
    Early April? 1963
    Nashville, The Hippodrome, Tennessee, USA
    According to Billy, he and Jimmy went to see Jackie Wilson and met (Odell) ‘Gorgeous’ George, a showman MC whose band performed the warm up set and backed up some of the solo acts they were also valets for the ‘Star’ performers on package tours. Billy wasn’t impressed.
    Larry Lee: “He [Gorgeous George] was the kind of cat who needed no rehearsal, you know…he would just say ‘Where’s my band, man?’ and the promoter would get some cats and he would go up there and put on a show, man. Jimmy learned from a cat with that much courage to show that the power they had in themselves would get them through… He knew people’s natures, how to make them happy. . . it was a second nature kind of thing and it made Jimmy powerful when he ran into George.”

    09 LIFE magazine editorial:
    In his research Coughlan studied over 1,000 medical papers, scores of books, talked to dozens of doctors and pharmacologists all over the country, attended lectures and symposia, visited asylums, watched animals undergoing laboratory tests on their brains. To get a firsthand description of the psychic manifestations of an hallucinogen (see Part II next week). Coughlan took the super-drug LSD, carefully administered by two Harvard professors. “I was struck.” Coughlan remembers, "by the incredible aesthetic quality of my visions. The colors were intense, the shapes beautiful. I saw golden-crested mountains, and jewels and banners and flags and Arabian knights riding to battle.”
    When all the research was done, Coughlan attacked what is for him the most difficult job of all—bringing down the vast knowl*edge he had accumulated into the number of words a magazine could publish. Each time he was asked to cut out more lines, he...
