    I just found out this is the 50th year for the Beatles debut song "Love Me Do".....

    Wow...I was soooo in love with them (especially Paul! :) )....
    And this just made me realize i was only 8 yrs old when they came on Ed Sullivan. And ya know what? I actually remember that night and where i was and remember sitting there in awe. The people that lived next door to me, the wife was from Liverpool. So of course i asked all kinds of questions and she said she had seen them when they were just getting together as a group. So i thought that was pretty special!! :lol:

    I never realized until many years later how radical John Lennon really was.
    And although i always loved Paul, what made him so special to become Knighted?
    Ringo and George have stayed pretty quiet...to themselves (as far as i know). I like that.....

    But they were the BEST. But only 2nd to ELVIS! :clap2:

    The Beatles invented music video in A Hard Days Night and Help.

    As with their original mop-top hairstyles that defined the 1960s - were pioneers....................

    McCartney was knighted for services to music.

    Ringo still tours every now and again with the 'All Starr Band' but you're right about George Harrison. He remains very quiet. He died in 2001. ;)
