About

The day after the 56th Grammy Awards, Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr were back together on stage, joined by many friends and artists, for an event named “The Night That Changed America: A Grammy Salute to The Beatles“, to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Beatles’ first appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show.

What can I say about this evening, it’s just amazing. At first when I was asked to do the show, I was wondering if it was the right thing to do. Was it seemly to tribute yourself? But I saw a couple of American guys who said to me, ‘You don’t understand the impact of that appearance on the show on America.’ I didn’t realize that.

We were in a band. It’s called The Beatles. And if we play, John and George are always with us. It’s always John, Paul, George and Ringo.
