    It's been 55 years!!!????

    55 Years Ago Beatles Debuted on Billboard Charts

    Fifty-five (55) years ago today — on Jan. 18, 1964— "I Want to Hold Your Hand" debuted at number 45 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

    By Feb. 1, the Beatles' first U.S. hit on the Billboard chart reached number one.

    That, however, was just the beginning. Eight days after their song topped the charts, John, Paul, George, and Ringo appeared on "The Ed Sullivan Show' before an audience of 73 million people.
    ...




    That's it! I offically feel old now.

    Music died many years ago. No more Beatles. No more Pink Floyd. No more Jimi Hendrix. No more Led Zeppelin. Etc. Etc.

    Every song today sounds the same. I couldn't name one of today's modern band or artist.

    It's 20 minutes but you guys might want to give this a watch.

    Truly agree that music today use less instruments and complexity of harmonics (read simple). And some "artists" use NO instruments at all. When you spend time learning to play an instrument, I feel you become more creative. IMHO "most" of today's music sounds mass produced. There are some exceptions BUT, FAR and FEW between.

    Any classical music lovers??
    Like the video states "A day in a Life" was a BIG success because of it's complexity of instruments. To ME.. this is what makes classical music great!

    In one of the photos dated 4 September 1962 with Ringo on drums, Pete Best was let go in 16 August 1962 on the cusp of international success. Unable to find success afterwards at a musician, he served 20 years as a civil service employee, I believe a postman. Currently tours or did tour with his own band I believe.

    Beatles already had several hits in 1963 in the UK before coming to the USA the following year.

    I’m old enough to remember the excitement they brought to the music world in 1963...haven’t seen anything like it since by no other artist/group. They ushered in the British Invasion music..

    Some say the Beatles' influence on the USSR was more powerful than the positioning of military weapons and the political stance taken by the West during the Cold War.

    Banned in 1964, The Beatles never set foot in Russia. Sir Paul McCartney finally flew in this summer, playing Red Square. In this OMM exclusive, he talks us through his picture book
    https://www.theguardian.com/music/20....paulmccartney


    Paul McCartney in Red Square

    Paul McCartney in Red Square is a live DVD produced and directed by Mark Haefeli starring Paul McCartney, released in June 2005. It is composed of footage taken during his concerts in Moscow's Red Square and St Petersburg's Palace Square. Songs from Beatles, Wings and solo albums are performed. Each song is interspersed with interviews regarding the Beatles' banning in the Soviet Union in the 1960s, and how fans had to spend large sums of money on buying records from the black market. The film also supports the fact that The Beatles were an impetus behind a social revolution, which led to the fall of communism in Russia.

    This autumn should have also seen the release of Peter Jackson’s eagerly awaited The Beatles: Get Back (now expected in August 2021), a new documentary based on the band’s final year together and a way of offsetting the profoundly depressing Michael Lindsay-Hogg film, Let It Be, from 1970. Culled from nearly 60 hours of footage shot in early 1969, as The Beatles were recording what would become the record Let It Be, Jackson’s film includes never-before-seen footage from those sessions, including behind-the-scenes clips from the band’s legendary rooftop concert on London’s Savile Row. Ringo Starr, for one, is pleased with the new film, as it shows them as genuine collaborators rather than adversaries.

    “There were hours and hours of us just laughing and playing music, not at all like the [Lindsay-Hogg] version,” Starr says. “There was a lot of joy and I think Peter will show that. I think this version will be a lot more ‘peace and loving’, like we really were.”

    Dhani Harrison, George’s son, said he was overwhelmed when he saw a screening of the film, comparing it to the way Jackson treated old First World War footage in They Shall Not Grow Old. “It’s so ridiculously amazing looking – I could see John Lennon’s fillings,” Harrison said. “I emailed Peter yesterday and said, ‘This is one of the most amazing things I’ve ever seen.’”

    You know the video talked about how the music has changed over the years but even the music of the 60's-70" is not the same as it was. I saw a deal years ago about how when they digitize music the computer sees some of the music as just noise so it takes it out. I forget the some now but back in the day when it was fresh you could hear the fingers sliding on the strings as the song played. I heard the some on the radio after it had been digitized and those little screeches, buzzes, clicks, etc were gone and the song was just not the same. I also remember there was a Led Zeppelin song (can't find the name or the song) that on a stereo you would hear the back and forth of the guitars in the speakers left and right. I went through every LZ song I could remember the title of on YouTube and could not find it.
