    50 Years ago today, The Beatles made their first appearance on the Ed Sullivan and launched The British Invasion. Music would never be the same.

    Collectively, the Beatles' Sullivan show appearances were one of the biggest life-changing experiences I've ever had! :bassist:

    Yessir! I've got the Beatles/Ed Sullivan shows on DVD. I'm definatley watching the Feb. 9th show tonight!

    I can't believe it's been that long. Hell, I can't believe I've been around long enough to say "I remember 50 years ago...." I was 10 at the time and it does NOT seem like it was that long ago.

    I'll never forget the next day at school. Everybody (even the teachers) seemed to be on a high we all couldn't come down from. My dad worked at Ford World Headquaters at the time and he even said the talk all day long was about the Beatles. For those who weren't around then, we had all been pretty beside our ourselves for the past 2 1/2 months since JFK was killed. We were SO ready for something to take the gloom away from us and the Beatles timing could not have been more perfect.

    They pulled us right out of the trenches.

    I have loved the Beatles since I was twelve. Real life changing music. I was fortunate to see Paul McCartney when he came to Pittsburgh a few years ago.
