Ed Sullivan Rehearsals

Some great photos of the Beatles rehearing for the Ed Sullivan Show in 1965.   The Beatles didn't perform on the show in person ever again.    They sent promos of songs after 1965, but never came to the studio and performed live.    This 1965 performance is often overlooked and forgotten because the 1964 show overshadows it, but it is actually really good.   It is because of the rehearsal photo, we see that Paul played "Yesterday" for the first time in the United States with live strings.


  1. the live strings photo is aweseom! thanks for posting.

  2. Whoah! The violin players! While the others hang on the drum riser! Groovy!!!
