The Beatles: On this day in music history

February 12

Most music fans know that The Beatles were a British band founded in 1960. They were 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 1964 through 1990.


The Beatles 1964

On this day in 1964 The Beatles play two 25-minute performances at the New York Carnegie Hall.  Extra seating is arranged surrounding the stage.  The ticket prices go from $1.65 to $5.50.

Also on this day British Prime Minister Sir Alec Douglas-Home and US President Lyndon B. Johnson meet at the White House in Washington, DC.  President Johnson comments: “I like your advance guard. But don’t you think they need haircuts?”

Also on this same day, the New Street Music record store offers to send anyone who purchases a Beatles record to a barbershop next door to get a free Beatles haircut.

On this day in 1966 the Rubber Soul platter reaches its 6th and final week at number one in the US.  Meanwhile in France, the song “Michelle” reaches its 2nd week at number one.


Paul McCartney 1990

On this day in 1967 police raid the home of The Rolling Stones’ Keith Richards. George and Pattie Harrison had been visiting at the house but word has it that the authorities were instructed to wait for the Harrisons to leave Richards’ home so that they would not have to arrest the holder of an MBE award.

On this day in 1990 McCartney performs at Riverfront Stadium in Cincinnati, Ohio as part of his “Get Back Tour”.
