    Hard to know where to start with great moments by those boys, but that's way way up there.

    It’s not that I hate people because of when they happen to have been born. It’s just that I’m aware that the Beatles are popular. I was just about to forget though so thanks.

    Dunno how anyone downplays their import at minimum. Beatles fandom isn't mutually exclusive to liking other kinds of music, and not naturally inclusive to being born just after WWII.

    But the time people were born shapes their perception of the beatles. Right here in this forum people have said things like music was in black and white before the beatles, and then suddenly it was in color.
    They didn't mean "for them". They believe the whole world percieved it that way, and that it's an actual fact.
    Maybe the whole world of teenagers did. It seems like everyone who feels this way was about the same age.
    I think the limited knowledge of a 14 year old at that time has shaped their perception. They had a shared experience with a very large number of other teenagers, where they all discovered they liked music through the same band. Interesting phenomenon.

    I hear you, good points. That's not a great take to think they basically invented music; they stand on others' shoulders too and had loads of circumstance buoying their brief career. I am biased because they wrote quite a few of the first songs I remember really knowing, but their inestimable influence aside, they ain't for everyone, and the influence has limits. There's a whole lot of music I like that has nothing to do with them.

    I sat on the living room floor and watched that show, and was instantly transported into a desire for guitars and amps, and great songs, and cool hair, and...all of it! The world shifted that night...

    For me, so much great music has come after this (as a player, listener and fan), but The Beatles' first Ed Sullivan Show appearance was what opened the door. No accident that my login name on this and other music forums is my initials plus "264"...

    That was great. I view on my grandmother’s TV in Bay Ridge. I was 13 years old...
    John was really up and down that neck. Arpeggios.
    I’ve been working on that song for the past few months.
    Thanks
