Book #500: The Beatles Invasion (2014, Bob Spitz)

Day-by-day account of The Beatles first trip to the USA. Nothing special but since I was one of those millions who watched the Ed Sullivan Show on February 9, 1964 the story does have meaning for me.
Interesting that one of their last jobs before they went home was to meet Cassius Clay (for publicity photos). It turns out that Clay did not even know who they were. And the Beatles didn't know that Cassius Clay had just recorded "Stand By Me". I'm sure if they were properly introduced they could have had something to talk about.
