Thanks John! Good list! I especially like The Everlys and Dion. I've seen B.B. live several times.

Joyce,
When I was 14 I liked a girl named Sue Brent. I called her Runaround Sue.

John, Cool! When I worked for Gibson there was a rumor, one day, B.B. was coming through but he never did.

He was also on their "Winter Dance Party Tour" with Buddy Holly and was originally going to be on their plane that crashed but gave up his seat to the Big Bopper because he had a bad cold and their tour bus had no heat.

Joyce, I hope it isn't true. I'm in trouble if it is. I didn't know you're a fan of Jerry Lee.

Music Luver says:
Their initial popularity is what got us and kept us interested, even some 40+ years later. We wanted to see what they would do next, and it appears many of the groups that came after them did too.

Hinch, your right, it absolutely...wasn't.

Hinch says:
Dion, who was also on the tour, had also decided earlier to get his own rooms and do the tour in a car. I believe he thought it was too chaotic traveling with the others.

One of the things that made The Beatles so popular, besides their great music, was the natural sense of humor they showed in interviews and press conferences. I don't think that could be created or rehearsed. The media loved them. The Beatles were seen as a single unit, all 4 equal, with no apparent 'leader' as opposed to other bands with a frontman and back-up musicians. Not even the other British bands were seen in that light. Are there ANY, even today, who are seen that way?

Dear Hinch:
yeah, like Mick said, when they walked into the speakeasy nightclub, they were like a 4 headed monster...they were always together in those days, and you never saw one, without the others! lol!
(he also said they had on long, black leather coats, and he thought they were soooo cool, that he thought he and Keith could try and write some songs, if he would then be able to buy one of those coats! :)
love,
joyce :)

Mitch,

I'm curious. If not The Beatles, exactly WHICH band do you think could have generated the same enthusiasm?

I suppose, in an alternate universe in which "Please Please Me" and "I Want To Hold Your Hand" bombed, Gerry & The Pacemakers might have gone on Sullivan first with "How Do You Do It?".

Or perhaps Herman's Hermits. After all, Peter Noone WAS the Justin Bieber of his day!

But neither of these groups was musically flexible enough to sustain a career beyond 3 or 4 years as evidenced by their limited "shelf life".

I suspect the Stones were too "dark & threatening" to be the FIRST British Invasion Band. They needed someone more "acceptable" like The Beatles to pave the way for them.

Probably the same with The Animals.

Dave Clark 5? Billy J. Kramer?

Keep in mind that, in early 1964 all of these groups had a limited repertoire of mainly cover songs and, without the Beatles' influence on their look, their hair and their music may have looked and sounded quite different.

So, who do YOU think, if The Beatles hadn't existed in February 1964, could have had a comparable impact, including the mobbing of airports and hotels etc, etc?
