“The Beatles changed my life and their arrival in Pittsburgh started my 40 year concert promotion career,” said DiCesare. “The Beatles came into our lives at a time when we needed them, the talk about war, love and loss.”
In a career that lasted less than a decade, the Beatles changed the course of rock and roll and popular music.
After launching the British Invasion of the United States and scoring 20 Number One hits, the Beatles went on to indulge their creative energies in the studio, layering sounds and crafting songs, in a way that was experimental yet still accessible. This retreat from the ceaseless mayhem of pop celebrity yielded such musically expansive and lyrically sophisticated albums as
- Rubber Soul (1965) and
- Revolver (1966). The group retired from touring in August 1966, and 10 months later, they released
- Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, an album that has almost universally been cited as the creative apotheosis of rock and roll, a watershed event in which rock became “serious art” without losing its sense of humor. The group continued to break new ground with the
- White Album and
- Abbey Road before calling it quits in 1970. All of the band members went on to successful solo careers.
- The Beatles were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1988.
