50 Years Ago: Tragic News Inspires the Beatles’ ‘A Day in the Life’

Decades before Law & Order was “ripped from the headlines,” the Beatles did the same thing for “A Day in the Life.” Three of the verses from the epic song that would close Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band were inspired by newspaper articles that were printed on Jan. 17, 1967.

In late November, 1963, Walter Cronkite of CBS News was looking for something positive to report after the assassination of President John Kennedy in Dallas, TX.  He chose to re-run a report on "Beatlemania in the U.K.".  After the broadcast, a 15 year old girl named Marsha Albert immediately requested her local radio station play the band's album.  Inciting a chain reaction in what would become the beginning of Beatlemania in the U.S., this event marked the tipping point of the British Invasion. Almost overnight, The Beatles changed the American music scene.

Ringo Starr was inducted into the Modern Drummer Hall of Fame in 1998. In 2011, Rolling Stone readers named Starr the fifth-greatest drummer of all time. Starr, who was previously inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a Beatle in 1988, was inducted for his solo career in 2015, making him one of 21 performers inducted more than once.

Happy Birthday Ringo!

He was always my favorite Beatle.

I had just read yesterday that 60 years ago on July 6th is when Paul and John first met.

When Brian Jones of the Rolling Stones drowned in 1969, Eric Clapton wanted to take his place.  Though Clapton was a very good guitar player the feeling among Jagger and Richards was that Clapton could surely handle to guitar playing but he wouldn't be able to handle the bad boy image (most true, some false) of the Rolling Stones.
