    The change in the Beatles’ appearance from 1966 to 1967 was amazing. Can you really blame the teens interviewed on “American Bandstand’ after viewing “Strawberry Fields Forever” for being shocked? It’s easy for us now(nearly 50 years later) to say that those kids were square but their change WAS really amazing. The hair. The clothes. The music.

  3. The late ’66 – mid ’67 photos of them are priceless. The Fool was tossing all kinds of clothing at them to wear in that period. and all 4 of them said sure why not.

    Oh boy… Do I need to say for the 1000th time how much I LOVE 1967 photos??? I remember every item of clothing, badges, etc. he’s wearing, his hair, everything. Their clothes were stunning, their hair, all the scarves and badges. Super!

    And now a half-century later, I can’t tell you enough how much I miss the 60’s. Maybe it’s just the nostalgia of a kid who remembers when hippies were REAL, but we will never see its like again. So much of it seems primitive now, but it may be looked back on as the real peak of our civilization, despite all its faults and problems. At least then we had hope we would overcome. Now it’s all greed and electronic isolation and people dying on pleasant Autumnal evenings in Parisian cafes. Nothing was Beatleproof back then, and I just miss it all so much.

    You’re right mccarp!
    I recall one of the last interviews John & Yoko gave and they spoke about the power of dreaming the same dream and of wish fulfillment. I’d like to believe that our positive thoughts and positive energy for the goodness and the excitement of and for life will prevail.
    My wish for all of you is one of peace & thanks for all that we have & for one another.

    How influenced my life was by them. The songs played on the record player and in my head. Pictures leaked now and then, and I was hooked. My mother thought me “old enough” and gave me money to go clothes shopping without her (had a closet full of stodgy gray and blue). Oh, how free I felt. I came home with a bright yellow flowery shirt and burgundy corduroy pants. Looked great with the white shoes! She let me keep it all. I was ready to become a teenage Beatle-boy. LOL

  13. So many heartfelt messages in this post. It makes the time and effort all worthwhile x

    The lads have been bringing so much joy to my life for such a long time… it never ends! So many wonderful friends… So much love! So much beautiful music! Right now I’m listening to John Pizzarelli’s Beatle album. Perfection. It rains in Rio de Janeiro (but it’s hot) and I have a pile of papers to type for my boss. I love you all! <3
