Today, Feb.9th 1964, the Beatles made their Ed Sullivan TV show debut.
Ha Ha, nice. Yes, it is or was an institution, I believe.Love the Beatles, wish I'd have been alive when they were together!
My father in law saw them in London, he lived near one of the venues all the British invasion bands played i.e The Hollies, The Who, Dave Clark 5 etc.
My mom was in the fan club and had all the e.ps up til around 1965 as well as the autographs. Never found them at my granddad's house, found the Bee Gees though and The Monkees stuff!
Even proposed at Strawberry Fields. For those of you that haven't been there's no Strawberries and it's definitely not a field! My first pressing of the White Album in mono is still my pride and joy!
ok, i didn't read itZleyba alert!!! Don't read this
I was 12 in 1964. My Dad worked at an appliance/electronics wholesaler and we always had the latest gear, like color TV
I actually had a pair of headphones on, listening to the AM radio when I first heard The Beatles.
The instant I heard Them, it was like a switch went off. Decades later I realized it was the harmonies that hooked me.
I also immediately noticed that they were playing live and that a lot of the audience can't clap in time
It was an orphanage then a children's home.Ha Ha, nice. Yes, it is or was an institution, I believe.
Ooooh, bitter, bitter? He said "A working class hero is something to be" he didnt even say he was one, even though he was. Auntie? so what? I have an Auntie who is minted, its her money not mine.It was an orphanage then a children's home.
There's just the set of gates on the side of a road, Lennon must have been off his tits when he wrote that song!
It's just round the corner from his Aunt Mimi's house which is about as middle class as it gets.....working class hero my arse!
