The end of 1963 brought with it the two most significant events of the 20th Century with the Assassination of President Kennedy and the invasion of America by The Beatles
about three weeks later. The Beatles had a fresh new sound and Beatlemania swept the land. The Beatles each played their instruments in the style of 50's Rock and Roll, loud, hard driving, and fast. One of my most vivid memories was on WKBW radio in Buffalo when the DJ, played the Beatles side by side with the Four Seasons, one of my favorite bands at the time, and I never listened to the Four Seasons again. The Beatles also brought a number of similar sounding bands with them that became the British Invasion. During the 60's they created a new sound with their original songs, mostly by John Lennon and Paul McCartney, on every album, bringing a more Classical structure in the music with Help with strings and orchestra, but also a less obvious, more Classical structure to the Rock & Roll songs. This evolution continued with the increasing complexity of Rubber Soul, my favorite, with George Harrison's introduction of the sitar on Norwegian Wood, and John Lennon's searing vocal on Girl, to Yesterday and Today, and Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. The Beatles were also leaders in creating the Youth Genereration of the 1960's introducing marijuana and LSD, the creation of the Hippie movement and the Peace Movement to bring the end of the Vietnam War.
