"It was 50 years ago today..."

On Sunday night, February 9, 1964, the Beatles performed for the first time in America on the The Ed Sullivan Show in New York; the music world would never be the same.  Scores of artists, not least among them Billy Joel and Tom Petty, have stated that seeing this seminal performance by the Fab Four inspired them to become musicians themselves.
