    About the correct order. Has been in the news on the anniv of his 70th birthday, and 30th year murder.

    Lennon was the #1 member of the MOST INFLUENTIAL MUSIC GROUP OF ALL TIME TO DATE.

    1) Kennedy-Nixon debates

    2)JFK Assn coverage

    3) The Beatles on Ed Sullivan Show

    4) Democratic convention riots in Aug 1968

    The AARP is as slow on ranking historic TV events as they are driving cars.

    I'm pretty sure 9/11 tops that list these days.

    I couldn't tell the Beatles apart when they visited the US in 1964.

    I was 11.

    There was even back then a sense they were historic and special.

    No one says "the 1968 riots at the DNC and Super Bowl 3 changed the world forever".

    9/11 is at the top of that list whether AARP recognizes it or not.

    Had the Beatles stayed together there'd be no Global Warming, or war, or poverty.

    The Beatles breakup was messy.

    That is the tar in their ointment.
