Washington, DC - 'Before the Ed Sullivan Show 50 years ago, before Beatle Mania created a frenzy in the United States and before the Mop-Tops introduced the world to a new genre of music, the awesome foursome spoke to our reporters at the American Forces Network-Europe," according to AMAC contributing writer John Grimaldi who was a reporter/newswriter at AFN.
The historic interview, now available at the Web site of the Association of Mature American Citizens [http://amac.us/historic-beatles-interview], aired on the Weekend World show hosted by Jim Stutzman. The Beatles were the newest sensation to hit Europe and were in Paris for a live concert when the GI network caught up with them.
According to Paul McCartney, what triggered it all half-a-century ago was "a little bit of a different style." If that was the case, that "little bit" was enough to set the world on fire and change Rock and Roll forever.
