Zoom webinar

It was 50 years ago in 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 investigate the reasons it all fell apart 50 years ago and what – if anything - could have been done to keep the band intact. It was 50 years ago in spring/summer of 1970 that The Beatles called it quits.  Using performance and interview clips, we’ll investigate the reasons it all fell apart and what - if anything - could have been done to keep the band intact. You will receive the Zoom link by email 3 days before and the day of the event.
