Here We Go

Jan 21, 2014 -- 12:48pm

As we move toward the 50th anniversary of “The Night That Changed America”. Iʼve been doing a little remembering and reflecting on The Beatles, seeing them for the first time, their overwhelming affect on all our lives going forward and just music in general. Music itself is a reflective animal whether it speaks of a person or a place, maybe a time or an event, an emotion or a trauma or just a simple roller skate key. Music is telling a story and its reflections roll over you and through your ears and into your brain and the real beauty of it is everyone has different reactions and interpretations and memories that are evoked when hearing a melody or a lyric or just a note. The Beatles struck such a huge chord in so many of our hearts and minds and lives that thereʼs no telling how different weʼd all be without ever having heard them (but who wants to go there anyway) weʼre not George Bailly even if this is “Your Wonderful Life”. Paul & Ringo will be appearing together, on the Grammys, Sunday Night Jan. 26th on CBS and I for one will be looking forward to watching. Iʼm not a big Grammyʼs Groupie. I was a voting member of NARAS for a few years and I tune in and out as most Grammy evenings go, but this along with the both of them rumored to be making another appearance on Letterman Friday Feb. 7th (2 days before the anniversary) and letʼs not forget The Late Show IS taped at the Ed Sullivan Theater. If youʼre old enough to have seen the Beatles that night 50 years ago Iʼm sure you can still recall some of your feelings and memories if not thereʼs always YouTube. You just wonʼt be able to travel back in time to know what life was like back then. No internet, no cell phones, no PCʼs, no viable FM radio, no....well you get the idea. We barely got the covered wagons emptied. The Ed Sullivan Show was the biggest stage in entertainment and right there on television in your own home. Just ask Elvis! And Sullivan Had The Beatles, so yeah Iʼll be watching The Grammys and Letterman and anybody else whoʼs gonna remember that night......Yeah Baby.....Here We Go.....
