50 years Beatles on the “Ed Sullivan” Show
It was 50 years ago (on February 9th, 1964), during the Beatles’ legendary first appearance on the American “Ed Sullivan Show” back in 1964, when there have been no major crimes reported in New York City between 8 – 9 pm, cause even the criminals seemed to join the estimated 73,700,000 viewers in 23,240,000 homes in the United States. Exactly 50 years later they are still likely to be the most influential band that has ever existed. Without them, music wouldn’t be the same and a whole lot of great bands just wouldn’t exist.
Here is our take on one of the songs they performed at that show back then – “I Saw Her Standing There“. These shots were taken at the “BaBü” in Wolkersdorf/Austria on March 7th, 2013, with Michael Mozeth on the bass and Philipp Wolf on the drums.
Thank you John, Paul, George and Ringo for evoking our deep passion for music and for changing the meaning of music forever. We also thank every other musician and artist who has the desire to give something to this world and believes in the power of artistry.
