British rock band "The Beatles" formed in Liverpool in 1960. Nicknamed "The Fab Four", they led the "British Invasion" into the US pop market. Interestingly, their recognition is not significant in Grammy history. They were "the Best New Artist of 1964" in the 7th Annual Grammy Award and Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hears Club Band became the Album of the Year in 10th Annual Grammy in 1967. And blank for several decades... Tonight, fifty years after their first Grammy, the group's enduring impact was clear in the 56th annual Grammy Awards, receiving a high honor for the 2014 Grammys as recipients of the Lifetime Achievement Award. Ringo Starr was singing "Photographs" with images of The Beatles showing in the background. Paul McCartney took the stage, after being introduced by Julia Roberts, to sing his song "Queenie Eye," joined by Ringo Starr on the drums. The last surviving members of rock's legendary quartet reunite for concert; marking the 50th anniversary of The Beatles' Ed Sullivan appearance on the 27th at "The Night that Changed America: A Grammys Salute to The Beatles" followed by a packed touring schedule. This is legendary! Their influence has prevailed in the pop music world for over 50 years!   For Beatlemanias, here are the event highlights and articles released in 2013 and 2014.
