Sold on eBay: Vintage Motorcycle Club Vest – Tennessee Peacemakers

Let’s continue the pursuit of vintage motorcycle club vests and apparel with this one. It’s a great M.C. vest that sold on eBay back in November. The actual posting has expired so I don’t know the name of the seller or any specific information about the vest but it needed to be featured because of it’s rough patina and unique whipstitching. Looks to be home made too. Here’s all the information that I could gather….

The Beatles Play Ed Sullivan: The Historic TV Appearance 50 Years Ago Today

Time magazine just released a great article about the historic day in pop music when the Beatles made their first appearance on Ed Sullivan. It’s hard to believe that 60% of American televisions were tuned in for the performance on February 9th 1964. Check out the classic photos from the show below.

Time also put together a short video entitled “A Rare Look at the Beginnings of Beatlmania” worth a look:

Spitfire 944 : Fourteen Minutes. Thirty Seconds and Sixty-One Years

My friend John Dilbone sent this over to me. Sptifire 944 is an excellent documentary of pilot John Blyth’s account of his crash landing in 1944 and it documents his seeing the video of the event for the first time some 60 years later….

“In 2005, an 83 year-old World War II pilot views 16mm footage of his 1944 Spitfire crash for the first time.”
