This Day in Music History: The Beatles sing about Love and Hillel Slovak of the Red Hot Chili Peppers dies

I thought I’d throw a couple of dates at everyone today..today being June 25

The first is:beatleslove1

1967: 200 million people saw The Beatles perform ‘All You Need Is Love’, live via satellite as part of the TV global link- up, ‘Our World’, Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Eric Clapton, Graham Nash, Keith Moon and Gary Leeds provided backing vocals.

And the second is:

1988: Hillel Slovak original guitarist and founding member of The Red Hot Chili Peppers died from a heroin overdose shortly after the band returned from a European tour.

Slovak recorded two albums with the band, Freaky Styley and The Uplift Mofo Party Plan.
