Capt Dan Geary, morning DJ at WMCE 88.5FM said the Beatles music will always live on. He said WMCE plays more than 8 thousand Beatle's songs a year. One Beatle's song every hour.
We spoke with Erie resident Chet Bixby who is a huge Beatle fan. He told us he sat down with Pete Best a few years ago and talked about how Best wondered "what if"
Best was fired as the Beatles drummer, Ringo Starr took over.
Eric Compton is another Erie resident who was a mammoth Beatle fan. He was lucky enough to see the Fab 4 in concert at Shea Stadium in 1964.
All three agree, the music of the Beatles will never fade away. After all, look what the first 50 years of the Beatles in America. Their music is still alive and well.
