It has been 50 years since the Beatles rocked the world. The Fabulous Four made their first appearance at the Ed Sullivan Theater in New York exactly half a century ago. Only two, Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr, survive today.
Who could forget the Beatles. The foursome, that entertained and moved the world with its fresh musical numbers, is simply etched in to the sands of time. When 50 years ago they visited America, the state of music and the quality of sound would undergo a sea shift. John Lennon was assassinated by a lunatic crocodile hunter.
Meanwhile, George Harrison also died a few years back. The only two surviving members are to give interviews and perform live pretty soon. The Beatles originally belonged to Liverpool but their influence has spread to the extent that today they belong to the world.
The colossal impact they had on the global climate as far as musicology is concerned is not to be dismissed so easily. The four experimented with various styles and even became disciples of the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi for awhile. The selfsame place where their careers took off for the first time will be the venue where the two extant Beatles will meet once again. That is the Ed Sullivan Theater.
Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr will be questioned regarding their lives and times by David Letterman. And they will perform live for a massive audience that will feel the melting memories of the 60s and 70s return as Beatlemania gets underway once again.
