Do you guys have any videos of the fans? I have a rare clip from Beatlefest 1982 in Los Angeles.

 

 

It took me a minute to realize this was 1982 and not 1964.

Just thought I'd x-post this so it doesn't get lost in the news thread - The Guardian posted an article on Beatlemania and its antecedents. Great read.

Check out my fan video for Paul's song "Appreciate" at Vimeo or YouTube.

^^ Yes, it's the date of the first Ed Sullivan appearance aka The Night America Lost It's Collective Sh!t.

On a related note, The Fab Four FAQ 2.0 mentioned that today Robert Zemeckis' "I Wanna Hold Your Hand" was released this day in the UK. I still need to see that.

Cheers.  I have the 2xDVD set of their 4 Sullivan appearances, complete with ads.  It's kind of funny to have the Beatles "coming up shortly (but first, here's a word from our tea and flour company sponsors)".  Watching them trying to sell Lipton tea into the US market is particularly amusing.
