Hans Remembers- Friday August 7, 1970- 50 Years Ago.
- Christine Perfect- McVie joins Fleetwood Mac. She was married to bassist John McVie from 1968-76. I always have preferred her music to the overrated Stevie Nicks- in Fleetwood Mac.
- All hell broke loose in San Rafael, California- where a Superior Court Judge Harold Haley for Marin County was taken hostage during the criminal trial of Black Panther James McClain. Jonathan Jackson had smuggled a pistol and a carbine rifle into the courtroom then tossed the weapon to McClain who pressed the rifle against Judge Haley’s neck in order to guarantee that the weapon would discharge if anyone attempted to stop the escape. While trying to escape in a rented van they were met by a blockade of 100 law enforcement officers. McClain killed Judge Haley before dying himself in a shootout.
