What is it about these lads that transcends time, crosses generations, and ignites so much universal Love? History simply does not have an art form that parallels this phenomenon. Almost 50 years after the media inserted them in every newspaper and on every radio & tv in every home, they are still on every radio & tv station and in every newspaper, plus now also, on your game device, computer, phone, ipod........and still in every home.
June 06, 2012 marks the 50th anniversary of The Beatles first recording with Pete, and September 04 the redo with Ringo, of Love Me Do at EMI Studios. Abbey Road on the River will celebrate 50 years of Beatles records in Louisville and DC in May and Sept 2012.
