A third of a century

That's how long it's been since The Beatles* had their last pubic performance.





* Go ask your parents, kids.

I'd pay $10000 never to hear about them ever again. Or at least to hear about THEM as much as people heard about Al Jolson's music from 1936 in 1969. That would be infrequent enough.

Might recheck your math. Hasn't it been 44 years?

My lovely wife would still boot be out for a chance at Paul . . . . sigh. She went to the 2nd tour concert in Detroit . . . not that I would EVER remind her how many years ago that was. :)

I'll take Iron Maiden instead. Or from that era, the Rolling Stones, of course.

Most of the pre-Beatles rock music I can recall was either I-IV-V and a shot of rotgut or I-vi-ii-V and a sack of raging hormones. Like them or not--and there are some solidly arguable reasons to not be too impressed with them as people--they did make popular music a lot more interesting from a purely musical standpoint.

When I switched from choir to band at age 11, the Beatles turned out to be my gateway drug (so to speak) to classical and jazz. I've gotta give 'em some credit for that.
