It was 40 years ago today

...or last Saturday, to be precise - that Paul McCartney officially confirmed the inevitable break-up of The Beatles. That concluded an unbelievable journey that saw the fab four evolve from talented crafters of catchy, yet naive pop hits to progressive, sometimes avantgarde rock artists an in less than a decade. In the process they opened up an explosion of creative paths for future bands to explore - which they still do. Their influence on rock and pop history since then simply cannot be overestimated.

These two videos exemplify how they practically invented the music video. In a word: classic!
