Virtual Event: When the Music Died, the 50th Anniversary of the Beatles Break-Up
Saturday November 7 @ 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM
It was 50 years ago in the spring/summer of 1970 that the Beatles called it quits. Incredibly, it was only 6 years earlier that the Beatles exploded in America on the Ed Sullivan Show. However, in that brief period they became – and remain – the world’s most iconic band thanks to a treasure chest of memorable songs and an uncanny ability to chart fresh musical direction with every new release.
Using performance and interview clips we’ll explore the reasons it all fell apart 50 years ago and what – if anything – could have been done to keep the band intact.
Gary is an adjunct professor at the College of DuPage/CE teaching a number of Pop Music History Classes.
