"The night the Beatles first played 'The Ed Sullivan Show,' boy, that was something. Seeing them on TV was akin to a national holiday. Talk about an event. I never saw guys looking so cool. I had already heard some of their songs on the radio, but I wasn't prepared by how powerful and totally mesmerizing they were to watch. It changed me completely. I knew something was different in the world that night." - Joe Perry of Aerosmith _ On February 9, 1964, four young lads from Liverpool rehearsed for what would later be recognized as one of the biggest nights in pop-culture history.

~17 years ago (when I was 5) I had a temper tantrum at the Ed Sullivan Theater because I wasn’t allowed to stay for @wilco’s taping on David Letterman. Last night, the Tweedy fam band played there, on @colbertlateshow, for my dad’s new solo record, WARM 👶🏻🌌
I really dig playing music with @maggierogers , @annewilliamsxn , @rodgerbrian , @rosieugly , and @jonbatiste and im stoked we got to play this tune yesterday. Also, a little added tidbit, during the pre-show Q&A someone asked Stephen Colbert what his 2ND favorite Beatles song is. Stephen quickly answered “Eleanor Rigby, but only because thats the first song to come to mind and if you give me a little more time I’m sure I can think of one that I like more.” For some reason, I thought that was super funny.. thats all.. Lastly, big thanks to these folks: @paistecymbals @remopercussion @skbcases_music @bigfatsnaredrum @snareweight @lowboybeaters
