We're taking a trip back in time on my blog.. one video from 45 years ago.. and the other one from 25 years ago.
Write me and let me know first of all.. if you watched the Beatles film clip from the "Ed Sullivan Show" before Sir Paul McCartney came on on stage and on the marquee on the "Late Show" last night. Having Sir Paul perform and chat about his family history, and the story of the Beatles was a real coup for Dave and nearly a once in a lifetime thrill for all us old (and young) Beatles fans!
On the very same day, US Magazine came out with the first public look at the Michael Jackson Pepsi commercial filming in 1984. The infamous commercial session went well on the first five takes.. but on the 6th try, the pyrotechnics set Michael's hair on fire.. an accident we have heard about for the past quarter century, but never saw.. until now. I had always thought a small spark touched his head, but as you can see from the film, it was much worse than that. There's little doubt Michael's need for painkllers started that day.
Would love to have you share your thoughts on these videos and what you thought of them! Ralph
