One of my friends posted article about The Who stop touring in 2015.  I wanted to look up more information and when I typed "the who stop touring" all that came up was "The Beatles stop touring". So, I decided to look in the news section of Google and "John Lennon Educational Tour Bus" popped up. a-hard-days-night-paul-5

Not sure i like the idea of being stalked by anyone. Might be another lawsuit in the offing.

I just found out that my high school typing teacher who told me when I was a senior that she trusted me with her life is a Paul McCartney fan. She put on Facebook that she was watching a 1976 Paul McCartney and Wings concert.  Everyone always called her one of the top 3 coolest (and prettiest) teachers at my school. Now I think she is even cooler. 

I told her how I just found Paul this year. She was surprised and amazed.

Went to CVS to buy supplies and saw the Rolling Stone with Paul is out. After picking out the perfect non-creased copy (yes, I'm particular about my collectible magazines), I took it up to the register. The cashier immediately stacked one of my other purchases on top of the magazine, and I took it off. I expected her to give me a strange look as I started explaining I was trying to keep it nice, but she quickly said, "Sorry! Sorry!" and carefully placed it in its own bag. It was cute she got it immediately. :-)

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

I watched "Top 10 Defining Moments of 1960s America" on WatchMojo on youtube. Think a group of us on there are going to rally together because The Beatles were not mentioned on there; however, With Little Help from My Friends was played during the Woodstock clip. Some were saying "They're English, not American". True, but they are part of the culture! They should have been mentioned.

If their first Ed Sullivan – when the country stopped to see a British pop group – wasn't one of the "Top 10 Defining Moments of 1960s America", I would love to know what was!

In ceramics I had to make a "sphere," and I wanted it to be something Beatles-related, so I made a granny smith apple. (sphere is in quotations because it's not really a sphere)

That's cool. I'd much rather get your sphere for Christmas than the dreaded George wax head.

Very cool unknown.

You could add a usb, scribble on "The Beatles" and then sell it.

                            2. When I pressed enter just then, the #2 was automatically generated.

                            I hardly hear of #3 or #10! I missed those days in school I guess. 

                            I can kinda understand #3 & #10 as moments if you stick to moments, if not they could both be covered by "Vietnam War" in the way the deaths – I'm assuming – of Malcolm X, Martin Luther King Jnr, and Robert Kennedy are all rolled into one. And could "Birth Control" really be described as a moment? Surely it was an event that unrolled slowly. No, I think The Beatles on Ed Sullivan should be in that list.

                            As to numbering, Sky666 has entered it as a list. The gap between each has made it renumber each as if the beginning of a new list when copied. Take out the gap and it numbers as a list.

                            Robert Kennedy wasn't mentioned. Malcolm X & MLK Jr. were the two mentioned for the Civil Rights. I have probably heard about #3 and #10, but they do not get mentioned much. Maybe because they are all rolled into one like you said. When most people think of defining moments of the 60s, The Beatles are somewhere in the list. Without The Beatles there may have not been a Woodstock, which made the list!

                            Strange no Beatles as they are such a fundamental part of the changing shape of the US from February '64 onwards. Maybe Apple heard and wanted a nice fee for a song clip. A lot of the 'Top Bands in the World Ever' on the music channels don't feature the Beatles due to issues with getting the promo clips – tho not all as occasionally Free As A Bird will pop up at number 1.

                            I doubt it was Apple fearing about using music or clips because this channel has done Beatles stuff before.
