50 Years After the Band Arrived in America, Writers, Musicians & Other Fans Remember
Penelope Rowlands

Can you remember how exciting it was to see The Beatles on The Ed Sullivan Show? Were you at the concert here at Crosley Field? Rowlands (one of the girls on the book cover) pens a nostalgic love letter to the musical group whose popularity has rarely waned in half a century. Musicians like Cyndi Lauper and Billy Joel join writers, photographers, and fans to explain why The Beatles merited the emotional response they got in the United States and why Beatlemania ran rampant.
