All-Star Celebration of the Beatles
I hope you caught at least some of the special, “The Beatles: The Night That Changed America: A Grammy Salute” on CBS last night, the show that paid homage to The Beatles on their 50th Anniversary since appearing on the Ed Sullivan show.
The stars were out in force to honor The Fab Four, including Stevie Wonder, Joe Walsh, Jeff Lynne, and George Harrison’s son, Dhani Harrison, among many others.
Paul and Ringo also talked to David Letterman about what it was like being back at the Ed Sullivan Theater 50 years on as they stood on the stage that had launched their debut in America and arguably is one of the most powerful moments in all of rock music history.
That introduction on Feb. 9, 1964 kicked off a worldwide phenomenon that has never really ended. Even after 50 years and the deaths of John Lennon and George Harrison, The Beatles remain the biggest thing in rock and roll.
