The Beatles: On this day in music history

February 6

Most music mavens know that The Beatles were a UK band founded in 1960. They were one of the most critically and commercially successful acts in history. The line-up from 1962 on included: John Lennon (guitar, keys, and vocals), Paul McCartney (bass, keys, guitar and vocals), George Harrison (guitar, keys and vocals) and Ringo Starr (drums, percussion, piano and vocals).

On this day in music history, there were several noteworthy Beatles-related moments.  The events date from 1958 through 1995.


The Beatles 1964

On this day in 1958 Harrison joins the Quarrymen. The group was named after Lennon’s school and included Lennon, McCartney, Len Garry, Eric Griffiths and John Lowe.

On this day in 1964 tickets for the Ed Sullivan Show (on which The Beatles will appear) sell out.

On this day in 1965 Beatles ’65 is in its fifth week at number 1 in the US.

On this day in 1968 The Beatles are in the studio overdubbing and remixing “The Inner Light”.  They also record Harrison’s vocal for the song.  The session is interrupted because Starr is appearing on Cilla Black’s live BBC TV show “Cilla”.

After the show The Beatles resume work and work on overdubbing, mixing and remixing “Lady Madonna”.  They also record “vocal brass impersonation and brasses” for the track.

On this day in 1971 Harrison’s All Things Must Pass reaches its 6th week at number one in the US.

On this day in 1981 BBC Books publishes The Lennon Tapes, which is a transcript of Lennon’s conversation with Andy Peebles on December 6, 1980.  Also on this day Lennon’s widow Yoko Ono’s single “Walking On Thin Ice“/”It Happened” is released in the US.   The A-side includes Lennon on guitar.

Meanwhile, Harrison, McCartney and Starr record Harrison’s song “All Those Years Ago” which is a tuneful tribute to the late John Lennon who was shot the previous December.

On this day in 1984 The ABC television program “Good Morning America” starts a four day flashback celebrating the Beatles first trip to America.

On this day in 1995 McCartney, Harrison and Starr begin to work on the Lennon composition “Real Love”.  (At some point in the recording McCartney had to imitate Lennon’s vocals because of the low level of the original demo.)
