In February, while touring Florida, I met a couple from Rockford, Illinois at the Wyndham Ocean Walk hotel in Daytona Beach. I mentioned I would be speaking on the Beatles at the Rockford library in May, and they expressed an interest in attending. Hopefully tomorrow I'll meet those friends again:

The Beatles: Band of the Sixties
Explore the music of The Beatles in this 60-minute multimedia presentation (part history and part musical analysis) spanning the full 1960's: beginning with the band's seminal visits to Hamburg, continuing through Beatlemania, and concluding with Abbey Road. The program will be supplemented with audio clips of music and excerpts from interviews with the band members.
This blog is a workshop for developing my analyses of The Beatles' music.
