- They sure loved to vote in the old Soviet Union- of course if you didn’t you’d most likely have some questions to answer. Elections were held on this day for the 767 member lower house -Soviet of the Union and the 750 member upper house- Soviet of Nationalities. 99.2 % voter turnout reported by TASS the Soviet news agency. All 1517 candidates were unopposed and the only choice was to vote Yes or No.
- Guitar God- Eric Clapton introduced his new group -when they took the stage at the Lyceum in London. They told the promoter their name was The Dynamics- but the promoter convinces them to add “Derek”- Clapton’s nickname and then mangles up the name and introduces them as Derek and the Dominoes.”
