Uh...  

"Please don't bring your banjo back, I know where it's been..  I wasn't hardly gone a day, when it became the scene..  Banjos!  Banjos!  All the time, I can't forget that tune..  and if I ever see another banjo, I'm going out and buy a big balloon!"

That's nothing compared to some of the truly wacko and bizarre pictures they were made to pose for in those early years! :lol:

There's the butcher cover, or course, but the prize for me still goes to the one with Paul in the cat suit.

WogBlog linked to a Liverpool Echo article on the first Ed Sullivan appearance with two great photo galleries from various years, but mostly '64.

Looking through these pictures made me think of two things. I had been wondering if The Beatles attracted attention from non-white Americans. Looks like American girls from many ethnic backgrounds fell for the lads from Liverpool.

Also, at the Shea Stadium concert, you see some parents with their children. I guess those were the cool parents. No generation gap problem in those families. The mom and daughters dressed alike in this picture are cute.

I would think given their insistence that they only play to integrated arenas that they must have known their appeal extended to Americans of color.

Ahhh Girl, just a few days after we were talking about it, CBS posts an interview snippet between Larry Kane and Paul about playing in integrated venues.

Cool.

And, I got Kane's book for Christmas. I need to get into it, but I'm working my way through Tune In right now.

I think those parents just brought their kids to the concert to make their kid happy (and supervision as well), not that they actually like the music; however, I do suppose a few may have like the music. Why do you think you see dads at One Direction concerts? I certainly don't think its because they like the music, but because they are making their kid happy.

Ugh, I see the name Bob Spitz on it...author of one of the worst bios on the Beatles ever, and a real dick to boot. That alone puts me off reading it.
