When the Beatles took the stage fifty years ago today (Oct. 13 -- ignore the date on this video) to appear on the variety show 'Sunday Night at the London Palladium,' they were four lads armed with the simple tools of their early classics--a bass, two guitars, drum kit.
The psychedelia, the massive studio productions, the brilliance and adoration, suspicion and disintegration -- those were years away. In this moment, cited widely as the birth of Beatlemania, it was simply John, Paul, George and Ringo, setting their homeland on fire.
It almost seems too easy to call 'Goodbye Yellow Brick Road' Elton John's masterpiece, but it's hard to argue against it. Released on Oct. 5, 1973, 'Goodbye Yellow Brick Road' was the second studio album he put out in 1973, and his seventh in five years. Oh, and it was a double album.
What's left for Elton John to prove? The guy is a knight of the round table. He's sold approximately six gajillion records. He's got a live residency in Las Vegas. Hell, he's even paid tribute to Liberace on the Emmys!
