In the spring/summer of 1970 The Beatles called it quits. Incredibly, it was only 6 years earlier that the Beatles exploded in America on the Ed Sullivan Show. However, in that brief period they became - and remain - the world’s most iconic band thanks to a treasure chest of memorable songs and an uncanny ability to chart fresh musical direction with every new release. Using performance and interview clips music historian Gary Wenstrup we’ll explore the reasons it all fell apart 50 years ago and what – if anything - could have been done to keep the band intact. Presented virtually in a zoom webinar by well-known speaker Gary Wenstrup. Gary is teaching a course, "The History of the Beatles" at the College of DuPage this fall.
