“It was a great feeling because we were booked to go to America directly after the Paris trip, so it was handy to have a Number One. We’d already been hired by Ed Sullivan, so if it had been a Number Two of Number Ten, we’d have gone anyway. But it was nice to have a Number One.” - George Harrison, quote source- “History with the Beatles” by Bradford E. Loker

9 February 1964 The Beatles made their historic debut appearance on Ed Sullivan. From then on music, pop culture and lives were never the same again.

George said once that during the few short minutes that they were on, that he had heard that crime rates had decreased. Who could blame them?? Hell there is no way I would have missed it!!
