This February marks the 50th anniversary of Beatlemania taking hold of popular music following the band's appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show on Feb. 9th, 1964.

They revolutionized many creative media surrounding their careers, including their great impact on fashion. The launch of concerts in a stadium venue rather than in a concert hall came about following their August 1965 concert at Shea Stadium in New York City. They were part of the forerunners of music videos, with their filmed song segments in A Hard Day's Night and Help! They looked at the album format as a creative whole rather than as a collection of singles, and with that focus came The Beatles' pushing the technical boundaries of the recording process itself, including multitrack effects, early versions of sampling and using classical string instruments as part of the orchestration background.

I have been a Beatles fan from the moment I was born. I was a 1964 baby with Beatles tunes on the radio as I came into the world. I was also born with a shock of thick black hair, and the nurses called me The Beatle Baby while I was in the hospital.
