40 Years Ago Today

The Beatles on the rooftop happened 40 years ago today.  It was their last live show as a band. Thanks to Youtube we can watch a whole bunch of it.  Check out all the facial hair!  Reminds me of that Simpsons episode where Homer starts a Barber Shop Quartet,  The B-Sharps (Scene not found on Youtube).  According to Chuck Klosterman, The Beatles were the 4 most accurately rated band of all time (that is neither overrated nor underrated).  Also for those of you who have nothing better to do here is an Abbey Road Webcam.

Part 1 (Get Back/Don't Let Me Down)

Part 2 (I've Got a Feeling/One After the 909)

Part 3 (Dig A Pony/Don't Let Me Down (Redux because John screwed up the words in the first part...probably Yoko's fault))
