Where were you when The Beatles came to America on February 7, 1964?
What were you doing that day or on February 9, when The Beatles performed on The Ed Sullivan Show?
I was 13 and I can remember their "long" hair was very shocking and unsettling for parents! I was at home watching the Ed Sullivan Show. I'm not sure why this particular group resonated so much with young teens but I was among them.
Now I hear their music and two things happen, I am transported back in time but I am also left thinking...gee that music sounded better in the 60's then it does now.
I was working on the farm that day. I was in the living room with my sweet girlfriend who later became my wife. We enjoyed the music and continue to listen to it today.
Too young to remember, maybe outside playing in the snow. I do remember loving the Beatles music and seeing them on subsequent Ed Sullivan shows.
I was just a small child, at home in California. I do remember watching the Beatles on the Ed Sullivan Show, we always watched it. I had a teenage sister at that time who just loved the Beatles...had their posters up.
I bet those posters are valuable collectibles today, if she kept them.
Patty, yes, they would be valuable, if they were still around. Unfortunately, my sister and I ripped them off the wall, thinking we were doing the right thing...we overheard our dad telling my teenage sister, she shouldn't have used plastic cement.
Oh, that's funny. Did we even have two-sided tape back then?
Patty, It wasn't funny at the time, my sister cried, and was mad, we were scared! The walll was a mess, she had glued the entire sheet to the wall, we ripped/peeled most of it off. No, 2-sided tape wasn't avai. then.
I hope there was no punishment involved!
No, we didn't get into any trouble. So it ended well, for us. We knew not to touch my older sister's things after that.
I was 7 years old but The Ed Sullivan Show was a staple performance in our home. I was watching the Beatles with my mom, dad and older brother. I can remember exactly what TV we had. Didn't know then how epic that day was to become.
I was not even born. Lol. Which doesn't make the Beatles and their music less charming for me.
In a cozy, warm, dark, wet place, waiting to emerge into the world, which did not happen until almost 5 months later. ~:0)
Did your parents play Beatles tunes for you throughout that time?
Probably not, Patty. My Mom is more of an Elvis fan.
How interesting. I wonder if she listened a lot before your birth. I like several of his numbers, now. I didn't when I was a teen or young adult.
I was a little kid and I don't really remember, but for a while I lived across the road from Pigman Ranch in Missouri where they stayed for a couple of days to relax away from the crowds.

As a musician and music lover, I have grappled with an answer to this question since MJ's sad passing, if there ever will be one.To me, good music entertains us. But great music must inspire and fuel passion within us. It may even change the way we view the world and hopefully for the better. For...
