48 Years Ago: The Beatles Finish ‘Rubber Soul’

When the Beatles took the stage fifty years ago today (Oct. 13 -- ignore the date on this video) to appear on the variety show 'Sunday Night at the London Palladium,' they were four lads armed with the simple tools of their early classics--a bass, two guitars, drum kit.

The psychedelia, the massive studio productions, the brilliance and adoration, suspicion and disintegration -- those were years away. In this moment, cited widely as the birth of Beatlemania, it was simply John, Paul, George and Ringo, setting their homeland on fire.

44 Years Ago: The Beatles’ ‘Paul Is Dead’ Rumors Hit the Papers

Paul McCartney is alive and well, but a well-placed rumor in 1969 had some thinking otherwise. On September 23, 1969, the Northern Star newspaper of Northern Illinois University published a story claiming that McCartney had been killed in a car crash a few years earlier and had been replaced by a look-alike. A radio station in Detroit picked up on the story and ran with it. Within a month, the story had gone global and Beatles fans worldwide were collectively scratching their heads.
