Default The Beatles

Anyone watching "The Beatles" on CBS? Popular artists perform Beatles songs; Paula McCartney and Ringo Starr perform together.

Wonderful show, so far!

Watching now, though I wasn't too impressed with Katy Perry or the group that sang Revolution. Can't wait to see Paul & Ringo.

Who was playing and singing with Keith Urban? My mind drew a blank (which is not unusual) but they were really, really good!

I remember watching them on the Ed Sullivan show and knew, even as young as I was, that there was a big change in everything. It wasn't just an overnight change - it was the fact that they continued to change EVERYTHING over the next decade, even after they disbanded.

Watching this show was bittersweet. George and John should have been there. I can only imagine (!) what would have been different, had they lived. For some reason, they were a perfect storm for the era.

Recorded it and will watch it when I won't be interrupted. Our youngest GD was being very dramatic tonight. She is in bed now but I'm exhausted. Sounds like I won't be disappointed.

I can still see as clear as a bell exactly how everything was 50 years ago last night when they were on the Ed Sullivan show. I can picture my mom's living room, how the furniture was set, Mom sitting on the couch and me in the chair watching them. I can remember even my Mom liked their music. I wasn't quite 14 then.

I watched the first hour, then hit "record" and watched Downton Abbey. I'll watch the rest of it tonight. Thought it was very good. I saw the Ed Sullivan show that night and my first son was 1 1/2 years old, so he saw it too; but, doubt he remembers.

I saw it too. I was a whole year older than your son. And I remember much, if not all of it. Also remember my mom hyping up the show: "Ooh, you're going to see the Beatles on television tonight!"

oh my the memories begin.....standing in front of their hotel in San Fran waiting for them to leave for their concert...finally lucked out as their limo passed slowly right of front of me and i saw all of them way close up. OMG my 7 hour wait was soooo worth it. the next year seeing them live in concert at the Cow Palace. seeing Lennon's shirt buttons go flying as some girl jumped him from behind as she ran on stage.......

my only regret about people doing cover versions of the Beatles songs....DON'T. i hate to admit that i'm a purist but where their music is concerned i am. i did not hear one thing from any other singer that could be considered a good rendition of any of those songs. until the masters themselves came on stage.

oh and it was a kick seeing Peter Frampton playing guitar. also one of my favs.

We're watching this now - it's wonderful.
Amazing "cover bands" - so good to see the audience engaged. Yoko is having a ball!

I was in high school at the time of the Ed Sullivan appearance. 2 years later - on August 29, 1966, my sister and I saw the Beatles perform in Candlestick Park. My brother had bought the tickets for us. Ticket price: $4.50 - for a box seat! This has been an enduring memory for me. It turned out to be their last public performance - short of the Abbey Road rooftop show in January of 1969. The Beatles were an important step along the way to my growing appreciation of music.

I'm betwixt and between the Keyes and Legend rendition of 'Let it Be'...it was an exploration of the gospel roots w/i of the song yet one of the 2 was more on point than the other.

Never saw the Beatles in concert and it certainly is one of my life's regrets.

As I mature I'M appreciating Paul more and better understanding his role in the group. He holds up exceptionally well with age and played to his strengths w/ honest gusto.

Many others planted the seeds, but the Beatles made them grow.
They changed everything. Their music is the soundtrack to many of our lives.

oh i LOVE that show and you're right. amazing what some things are worth. and yes autographed is more valuable as long as it isn't personalized (like to Bob from so and so). learned that on the AR too. haha

I told my kids that before they give my records CDs and books away, check for autographs.
That should keep them busy for months after I make my exit.

On the whole, fan-friggin-tastic! I wasn't too crazy about a couple of the "interpretations" by other artists, specifically Katy Perry and Imagine Dragons, but I sang along with every song presented, and those songs brought a few tears and so many memories of places I'll remember all my life, though some have changed. Some forever not for better, and some have gone and some remain. All those places had their moments with lovers and friends I still can recall. Some are dead and some are living, but in my life I've loved them all.

Even Yoko Ono and Sean Lennon were having a good time, although they were still sitting on the other side of the auditorium from Paul and Ringo, just like at the Grammys last week. I didn't even see Julian Lennon there, but just like Paul, George and Ringo, he never got along with Yoko Ono either.

Everyone knows that 15 minutes can save you money on your auto insurance, but how many of you know that George Harrison is not the musician whose guitar gently weeps on the recording? Does anyone know who made that guitar cry? They weren't credited on the recording, so don't drag out your White Album liner notes, and no fair googling it! BTW, Joe Walsh did a great job with it, but he's always been underrated as a guitar player.

As I watched the people on stage and in the audience, I found myself wondering just how many of them would not have considered a career in music if it hadn't been for the Beatles.

Bet Patty was there.
Best muse ever, that woman inspired some great songs.
Speaking of which, do you know who played the opening riff on Layla, it wasn't Clapton.

We should start a rock trivia post, I'm a wealth of useless information.

One of the Allmans? The one who died in a plane crash?

Duane, he died in a motorcycle crash.
Duane played lead on a many of the songs on the Layla album. If you hear a slide guitar, it was Duane Allman.
