Today is, without a doubt, the most exciting day that Beatlemaniacs have experienced in nearly 40 years. Today we will have them all in a brand new way and the day will go down as one of the most memorable in the annals of music history.
Nearly 50 years after the Beatles hit the UK with a fury, here they are conquering the world yet again with the music that put them into a category they share with no one: the greatest band in history. That’s not an exageration. I know there have been great bands in many eras of music, but no one did what the Beatles accomplished on a global scale, both artistically and culturally. They didn’t just follow a trend and enlarge on it, they made it happen.
I for one am waiting for my mono box set of remasters to arrive via UPS. I am excited. My friend has ordered Rock Band, and that will be the highlight of the evening, no doubt. Another friend in the LA area is at a live venue with radio coverage, a tribute band and contests that allow people to win both cd sets and the game, Beatles’ Rock Band. The AP is covering, Huffington Post has an article, MTV, Vh1…the list goes on and the beat goes on and the Beatles will live forever!
For the tiny little group of people who honestly don’t care for the music of the Beatles, I have nothing to offer you. I’m not in the business of convincing. All I can say is, you don’t know what you’re missing, and if you don’t care…more’s the pity. They were and remain today, the biggest party on the planet.
Go Forth and be FAB!!!
