1. The Beatles’ performance on the Ed Sullivan Show is considered to be one of the “most storied in rock”. Why? What circumstances and twists of fate allowed this to happen? Do you think that it is possible to happen again?
2. Compare and contrast these London-based bands: The Rolling Stones, The Yardbirds, The Animals, and The Spencer Davis Group. What are their similarities? What are their differences?
3. Early in their career, The Who had been labeled a “mod” band, putting them into a category as part of rival gang warfare between Mods and Rockers. Compare that to contemporary groups and artists whose music often is shadowed in gang warfare. Is it fair to judge them due to the circumstances?
