Hans Remembers- Wednesday September 23, 1970- 50 Years Ago.
- The Rolling Stones front man- and the greatest front man in rock and roll history- Mick Jagger met Bianca Rose Perez Moreno de Macias for the first time after a concert in Paris. They would marry in 1971 and divorce in 1978.
- A peanut farmer named Jimmy Carter -a former Georgia state senator won the state’s Democratic Party primary. At that time Georgia was a Democratic Party stronghold- having elected democrats every election since 1871. Carter easily won the general election in November- who would have thought that six years later he would become the 39th POTUS? I am not a fan at all-but am looking forward to getting my hands on- and reading the first full biography of Carter which comes out next week- His Very Best-Jimmy Carter- A Life by Jonathan Alter.
- American folk singer Ani DiFranco born in Buffalo, New York.
- The Houston Women’s Invitation Tournament -the first professional tennis tournament for women only-started in Texas as the inaugural event in the Virginia Slims Circuit tour.
