August 22nd was a big day in The Beatles’ history. In 1962, their first TV appearance was recorded as they played The Cavern Club in Liverpool.

In 1963, Billy J. Kramer and the Dakotas were at number one on the UK singles chart with “Bad to Me,” a song written for them by John Lennon.

In 1968, Ringo Starr quit the band during the recording of The White Album. He returned in September.

And in 1969, The Beatles met at John Lennon’s home for their final photo shoot.
