Today in 1978, to accompany their performance of "Fat Bottomed Girls" during their Madison Square Garden Show, Freddie Mercury and Queen employed numerous semi-nude women bicycling around the stage. So, if you like, you may visualize that as we enjoy the song today.

Today In:

1968 - The Jimi Hendrix Experience album Electric Ladyland was #1 in the U.S.

1974 - With the assistance of his pal Elton John backing up on piano and vocals, John Lennon enjoyed his first #1 hit with "Whatever Gets You Through The Night."
