The British Invasion’s Golden Anniversary!

The Invasion begins -- New York City, February 7, 1964

The invasion begins:
New York City, February 7, 1964

It's been a half century since the Beatles stepped off the plane at Kennedy Airport!

The British music invasion of the early Sixties is a hazy memory to most of us who are old enough to remember it at all. For many of us, it's the kind of memory that makes us smile and remember a time when things were less complicated... when we shared with each other the pure joy and energy of the new music playing on our radios.

We've created this website to rekindle those memories... and to introduce the people and songs of the British invasion to anyone not lucky enough to have experienced it first-hand.

Each page is devoted to one of the bands which gave us all of that great music. And because some of us are curious about whatever happened to those musicians, we let you know what they're up to, what they look like after all these years and what kind of music (if any) they're making now.

We've added a section to feature memorabilia from the era of the British invasion -- things like guitars, posters and ticket stubs. And to share our memories and opinions, there is a blog page open to everyone without the need to register.

Our goal is to create a community of British pop and rock music lovers to keep the music and memories alive... and we hope you'll be a part of it.
