Strange how stuff like that happens - I guess the world looked pretty small to Neil and Buzz that day too.  That day I was out playing with my friends and we went into a neighborhood deli to get a soda or something.  The owner had a little TV which was showing the preliminary "circling" from the window of the module.  We ran home to watch it - it was on all 7 channels.

Did you see this bit in RS about U2's set, thinking they'd blown their big chance? Bono went away from the setlist and they wound up doing a 12-minute version of Bad, and they didn't have enough time to play their hit. The minute-by-minute breakdown starts out kind of stupid but got pretty interesting toward the middle.

Jackie Wilson
Living up to his nickname “Mr Excitement”, Jackie Wilson whipped a Port Arthur, Texas nightclub crowd into a frenzy on this day, June 25th in 1966. He was arrested for inciting a riot for refusing to finish the show after cops ordered him to stop.
The charges were later dropped to public drunkenness and he was fined $30.
