In my humble or not so humble opinion, The Fab Four were and still are the greatest rock and roll group ever. Period. End of story. Don’t try to tell me that there is any group greater than Paul, John, Ringo and George.
I remember seeing the commercials for the Beatles to appear on Ed Sullivan show…”the boys with the unusual haircuts…” My Dad said that he was kind of embarrased because their hair was “so long”. That was it, I was hooked on them.
I had a Beatles lunch box, Beatles trading cards, and bobble headed Beatles dolls that you got free when you bought a six pack of Pepsi in bottles, of course. I also had a teenage babysitter named Shirley who was more obsessed than me. She had a 2″ x 2″ square of the sheets that the Beatles slept on. She kept it in her wallet in a little plastic sleeve. I was most impressed!
