...Nothing happened (I'm calling it August 20th).

 

However, let this thread exist so we can call attention to the things, both big and small, which occurred on whatever given day it is.

In a few days we're hitting the 43rd (!) anniversary of the very last appearance of the Beatles together, so let's give that the respect it deserves.

We just hit the day anniversary of when Ringo joined and now we have their last day together coming up. They really did achieve so much in so little time.

It's not the same anniversary, the Ringo one was the fiftieth and this is forty-third.

We're about a week away from the anniversary of the Beatles meeting Dylan! :)

One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!"

Jason Starkey was born on the 19th August 45 years ago.

I don't think anything important happened on the 21st of August but I think Patti and George returned form Greece around this day in 1968.

Their love for Brian Epstein was inspiring.  One wonders how the last two years of the Beatles would have turned out with Brian still alive...

After re-watching the Anthology did I gain a true appreciation for how much Paul did to keep the band together.  I don't think he quite gets the credit he deserves.

 

If you watch the bootlegged original "director's cut" of the Anthology, there are definite moments when you feel like it should have been called "Paul McCartney & the 3 Piles of Dead Weight".

I say that with great love for the band.  But when John said "The Walrus was Paul", he was referring to Paul's nonstop drive and enthusiasm to keep the band going.
