Beatles Week: Part III -- Shiny Happy People

The Fab Four invent Death Metal at Shea Stadium in 1965.



I particularly like the gun shots in the crowd at the beginning and end.

UPDATE: Perhaps the lads were inspired by this terrifying encounter.

Did Ed Sullivan just call us douchebags?

So that's what they really sounded like behind the screaming and mass hysteria. Wow? How different it is once the spell is broken.

That's proof to me that Sgt. Pepper was none other than Aleister Crowley.:-)

BTW, how come New York girls look so square? Is this the best the cameraman could find in the crowd? Really?

Are you an idiot? IT WAS 1965.

And what did Marianne Faithfull look like in 1964? Look at the styles that girls wear in Seventeen Magazines from 1965. I'm sorry, many of, but not all, the girls in the Beatles video are frumpy and behind the times in their look. Exceptions are found in the first two seconds of the video. Those girls must have been from California.:-)

Uh, I was a teenage boy from New Jersey in 1965, and those girls at Shea looked fantastic.

Sorry, Vicki.

Steve: OK. Just some unfounded and provocative regional poking:-)
