(FOX19) -

50 years ago today, The Beatles made their American television debut on the Ed Sullivan Show and changed the course of music history forever.

Their debut also sparked a revolution as young people at that time around the world grew their hair long, began playing music and sang about love. 

Starr says, "It made such an impact when we landed all across America; but when we did the "Sullivan" show, 70 million people watched it." 

A monument was erected at the JFk Airport where they first landed in the states.
