It is fair to say that The Beatles are arguably the biggest and most influential bands of all time. 50 years ago, back in February 1964, The Beatles appeared on The Ed Sullivan Show and, following their impressive performance, a whole new generation of musicians were born.
The Beatles in their young days
 
Billy Joel was just 14 years old that night and he remembers, "The Beatles came along in February of '64 and bang! Everybody went crazy. And I said, this is what I want to do. Now my path is clear."
 
Meanwhile, Steve Van Zandt was 13 and he recalled, "February 9th, 1964, it all began for me. Suddenly, maybe there's hope for my life. Because I didn't fit in anywhere. And I was starting to get concerned!"

David Crosby was 22 at the time and already a musician but The Beatles inspired him to become better. He added, "We went out and got the same guitars. I got a Tennessean, just like George had. And we started to figure it out: 'How do you hold an electric guitar when you're playing?"
 
It was not just those young men back in the 1960s that have been inspired by The Beatles, whose music has gone on to last the test of time, as popular today as it has ever been. Many young musicians today, picking up a guitar for the first time, when name The Beatles as their biggest influence. The Beatles were a unique talent and their music will live on forever.
