01.01.1962 - Im Plattenstudio von DECCA Records GB machen die Beatles erstmalig Probeaufnahmen. Dick Rowe, der angestellte Produzent, lehnt die Beatles ab. Der Sound gefiel ihm nicht und im allgemeinen vertrat er die Ansicht, die Zeit der RnR-Gitarrenbands sei vorbei. Irren ist menschlich ! Wenn man jedoch die Aufnahmen heute hrt, fragt man sich, ob Dick Rowe nicht vielleicht doch richtig lag, als er die Beatles in der damaligen Form ablehnte.
