And what seems to me to be the VERY recent 50th anniversary of the Beatles landmark performance on the Ed Sullivan show illustrates just how quickly the lads did what they did. If you were to transpose their career to place the Sullivan gig on its fiftieth anniversary (Feb 9, 2014), they would have broken up last year. Not a bad little run.
