On this date in 1958 – The Lego company patents the design of its Lego bricks, still compatible with bricks produced today.

On this date in 1968: During their tour in Australia, members of The Who and the Small Faces, among others, are escorted off their flight from Adelaide to Essendon for drinking beer on the plane, being rowdy, and using “very bad language.” Two of the flight’s four female attendants are said to be in tears. When brought to the attention of their group manager Jimmy Dugan, of “A League Of Their Own” fame, he retorted, ” CRYING!!! CRYING!!! There’s no CRYING in Rock and Roll!!!!!”
