The Beatles: Six Days that Changed the World. February 1964 (B. Eppridge)

Afin de commémorer le cinquantenaire de l'arrivée des Beatles aux Etats-Unis, The Beatles: Six Days that Changed the World. February 1964 arrive aujourd'hui dans les librairies. Son auteur, le photographe Bill Eppridge, était en mission pour le magazine Life pour couvrir l'arrivée du groupe à l'aéroport JFK le 07/02/1964. Par la suite, il a pu poursuivre son reportage dans leur chambre de l'Hôtel Plaza et durant les jours qui ont suivi, au Ed Sullivan Show, dans Central Park , à Washington DC (à l'occasion du concert du Washington Coliseum), à l'ambassade britannique, ainsi qu'au Carnegie Hall. The Beatles: Six Days that Changed the World. February 1964 constitue sans aucun doute le compte-rendu de cette première incursion américaine des Beatles, marquant le début de ce phénomène célèbre qu'est la British Invasion !
