Fifty Years

 

America’s love affair with the Beatles started 50 years ago today when they landed in New York City.

Landing in NYC

Girls went crazy!

Beatlemania

Music changed forever.

Slicked back hair was out, bangs were in.

Before the Beatles:

SIXTH GRADE

After the Beatles:

EIGHTH GRADE

CarnabyStreet, paisley, and Beatle Boots entered our vocabulary.

Fifty years later, our love affair with the Fab Four continues.

I was one of the 12 people in the US who did not see the Beatles on the Ed Sullivan Show.

We were at church.

But the next day every one at school was talking about them, and I too fell under the spell of their music, their style, and their hairstyle.

Then, I heard the Rolling Stones, and every thing changed again…well, at least for me.
