Ol' Blue Eyes is born, Boys Town is founded, the first motel opens, "The Godfather: Part II" premieres, and the U.S. Supreme Court decides the 2000 presidential election, all on this day.
1970: The Doors make their last public performance with Jim Morrison, at The Warehouse in New Orleans. During the second stop of a tour to promote their album "L.A. Woman," Morrison had a breakdown on stage, slamming his microphone into the stage floor until the platform underneath was destroyed. He then sat down and refused to perform for the remainder of the show. After the concert, the rest of the band decided to end their live act, feeling that Morrison was ready to retire from performing. Morrison would die less than a year later on July 3, 1971.
