Now it can be told -- on Sunday, February 9, 1964, I was the only teenager in America who DIDN'T see The Beatles on the Ed Sullivan Show.
The short version: I was sick as a dog, running a 102 degree temperature, and my parents forbade me from leaving my bed. I did get to hear the show, as my bedroom was down the hall from the TV in our den, but still.
It is perhaps an amusing irony of history that George was apparently sick as I was on that evening, but at the time it wasn't much of a consolation.
Have a great weekend and we'll talk again on Monday.
