First appearance: Ready, Steady, Go!
The Beatles made their first of three appearances on TV's Ready, Steady, Go! on October 4th, 1963. The band mimed to three songs: Twist and Shout, I'll Get You and She Loves You.
A friend was designing sets for Ready, Steady, Go!, and he invited me to their first live TV performance. They were wearing the famous grey, buttoned-up suits, which really stood out at the time. I was the only one at the rehearsal when they played this song. To me it sounded like very good rock 'n' roll. But it wasn't just the music, it was their personalities, the way they looked, the whole thing.
