3rd February 1967
In a darkly contrasting prelude to the coming Summer of Love, legendary record producer Joe Meek shot his landlady dead before turning the gun on himself at his Holloway Road flat-cum-studio.
Meek had produced Telstar, the Tornados classic that became the first U.S No.1 by a British group back in 1962.
His suicide took place on the 12th anniversary of the death of his hero Buddy Holly.
