Topic: 50 Years Ago
It was 50 years ago today that the Beatles appeared on the Ed Sullivan show and changed the US music scene forever. 40% of all the TVs in America were tuned in to listen to the Fab Four that night. The way we dressed, cut our hair and music we listened to and played changed from that day. Within a few months even the 17-piece band I was playing drums with was able to obtain a "Big Band" arrangement of Beatles hits and it became our most requested medley at Country Club and Elks Club dances.
How did the last 1/2 century go by so quickly?
