1964 - At the age of 38 years old, Sylvester was alive when on February 9th, the Beatles appeared on The Ed Sullivan Show. 73 million people watched - although the Beatles couldn't be heard because of the loud screaming of the female teenage audience.

People brought tools and took parts of the hated wall.
