It’s a BIG day in Rock History, actually music history in general! Today is the 50th anniversary of the day The Beatles arrived in America!

It was Pam Am Flight 101 and it arrived at JFK Airport in New York at 1:20 p.m. Over 4,000 screaming fans were there to welcome them!

I’ve heard in countless interviews over the years that when the guys saw the crowds of fans, they figured there was a dignitary arriving at the same time they were. They just couldn’t imagine that all those people were there for them!

Of course you probably know I am and have been a huge Beatles fan! Even though I wasn’t born when they first arrived, I love watching how everybody went crazy for them! I can so see myself being one of those screaming girls welcoming them to the U.S.! Actually, I probably would have been one of those girls that fainted and missed everything! LOL!

Check out the video below of the Beatles arriving at JFK.
