trivia tuesday.

In January of 1962 the Beatles had no record deal and auditioned for Decca Records.  Beatle manager, Brian Epstein, was told by Dick Rowe of Decca, "Groups of guitars are on their way out, Mr. Epstein.  You really should stick to selling records in Liverpool."  He told him electric guitars were "old hat"...!
He became known as "The man who turned down The Beatles"!
Luckily for him, on George Harrison's advice, he signed The Rolling Stones to Decca...
Still think he blew it!

So, fifty years later and The Beatles still hold the record for most number one songs within a one year time period and their influence on popular culture still remains monumental.
happy tuesday, joy choosers.  ali
