It was 50 years ago today The Beatles played their last gig on the rooftop of their Apple Corps headquarters. They didn’t announce it or promote it in any way. Basically, friends, employees and office workers from the surrounding areas witness history. People gathered on the street.
They weren’t rehearsed. They flub lines. John jokes. The harmonies are beautiful. Billy Preston is tucked away and playing his heart out.
Just watch the band perform “Get Back” and you’ll be instantly transported to a simpler time. I find it akin the magic.
They didn’t know it was goodbye, but it probably wouldn’t have mattered it they did. They were The Beatles and their songs will live forever.
