Love them forever…
22 Day Beatles Challenge Day 9: Your Favorite Beatles Era - 1964-1965
This was the time when the Beatles were taking the world by storm. They seemed to be unstoppable, and that’s exactly what they were. They were so young, they still had so much to learn, and yet, everything they did, the world took as remarkable. This was the time when they had no “troubles,” no signs of a break-up, still filled with musical ideas that would go down in music history. They would last forever.
In 1964, they made their first trip to the United States, and appeared on the Ed Sullivan Show, which just fueled Beatlemania. They released a couple successful albums, A Hard Day’s Night, and Beatles for Sale, and created some of their best songs like I Want to Hold Your Hand. Their first movie came out too, A Hard Day’s Night, which is personally one of my favorite movies.
In 1965, they performed in front of more that fifty-five thousand adoring fans at Shea Stadium in New York. They released their second movie, Help! after the release of their Help! album, which rocked.
When I look at the events that happened during these two years, it just brings me sheer happiness, and admiration toward the Beatles. Every time I watch video clips from this time, I feel like I’m discovering the Beatles all over again. I love it. I love them.

Love you George, forever.
How do you think he felt about the Beatles as he got older?
I just know what I’ve heard from George as the years went by. But he was very funny, like, “The Beatles, they weren’t all that they were cracked up to be” [laughs]. He loved the Beatles. He used to bitch sometimes about individual Beatles who got on his nerves. But he really loved them down deep, and I knew this. I think that a lot of George’s personality was formed by John. This is just a guess, but that was the way it appeared to me. He looked up to John so much. He said, “Oh, John would be a Wilbury in a second.” He’d say about Paul, “Paul is a year older than me, and he still is.” But he really loved Paul, too. And he really loved Ringo.
