The 50th anniversary of the Beatles' first visit to America is certainly getting its due as a pop-culture milestone, with celebrations hosted by the Grammys, David Letterman and CBS. But it'll also receive a more lasting honor, courtesy of John F. Kennedy Airport in New York City.
The indie-rock duo Broken Bells covered the Beatles' 'And I Love Her' on 'Late Show With David Letterman' last night and threw in a sample of ''I Am the Walrus' for good measure. You can watch a video of their performance above.
As the Beatles gathered for what would be their final live set on Jan. 30, 1969, they hadn't performed in public since Aug. 29, 1966 -- a three-year period in which the group would reach new artistic heights, even as it began to fall apart.
For all of the many superstars who made appearances and thrilled fans with performances at the 56th Annual Grammy Awards, the night will probably best be remembered as the night the Beatles dominated the airwaves again . . . almost 50 years to the day when they first landed in the U.S.
Two weeks after Black Sabbath announced their new line of sneakers, the Beatles have unveiled some brand new shoes of their own. But unlike the Sabbath sneaks, which are inspired by four different albums made by the original band lineup, the new Fab shoes grab images solely from the group's 1968 animated movie 'Yellow Submarine.'
The Recording Academy is going all out to honor the Beatles at this year's Grammy Awards, honoring the band with a Lifetime Achievement Award and helping round up an all-star cast of performers to commemorate their groundbreaking 1964 appearance on 'The Ed Sullivan Show,' and it's all got Ringo Starr in a rather nostalgic mood.
It's official. After much speculation, the two surviving members of the Beatles, Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr, will play on an upcoming TV special commemorating the 50th anniversary of their arrival in America.
It may have taken Capitol Records a year to decide to distribute the Beatles in America, but when it did, the label quickly flooded the market with music. The first entry, 'Meet the Beatles,' reached shelves on Jan. 20, 1964.
