I had recently posted about two concerts, each performed on rooftops in the center of a major city by a leading band of the day. The more well known one was by The Beatles on the roof of Apple Records headquarters in London on January 30, 1969. The other was by The Jefferson Airplane on the roof of The Schuyler Hotel, near Times Square in New York City on November 19, 1968 (see my post here – https://roymusicusa.com/2019/02/13/up-on-the-roof-two-rooftop-concerts-same-ending/).
As a follow up, here are two videos that go into the backstory of the Beatles rooftop concert. The videos go into the haphazard way it came about, from grandiose plans to just “whatever . . “. and shows how sometimes great art comes from just going out and doing it.
