For once, bordercollie is correct and I agree with some of those bands.
I've heard or read a lot of times that if xxx didn't do this then that wouldn't have happened but there is no human way possible to determine that.
The point is, it did. In my life, (pun intended) The Beatles weren't the first music I was ever exposed to, but I was there. It hasn't been properly explained (at least in my experience), but ungodly intricacies had to 'come together' (one more) for this event in History to happen. Other groups could've done this, that & The other thing, but they didn't, The Beatles did. My next door neighbor, Kristy Norman, got a Beatle wig, soon after the Ed Sullivan Show episode, Feb. 9th, 1964, and of course she had to have me over to try it on! Wish I could get my hands on the photo her Mom took of that!
I had a Bakelite type AM radio my parents let me have, and the local AM station, CKLW, out of Windsor, Canada was THE Station in our area as far as 'Top 40' pop was concerned and even with Detroit being 'Motown' with all that implies in the R&B part of Music Land, you heard at least two Beatle songs per hour, and most times, three! Nobody has ever come even close to that since,barring "All 'band X'" weekends and such type playlists on Radio/webnet. I am genuinely saddened by those of you who have to put down other things you don't like for whatever reasons, (Jealousy?) but there is one thing you can't refute. It's recorded in HISTORY. It happened. So stick that in your pipe and smoke it, haters!
My Bakelite radio was similar to this one....
