June 2 1953 The coronation of Queen Elizabeth II, who is crowned Queen of the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Her Other Realms and Territories & Head of the Commonwealth, the first major international event to be televised. Queen Elizabeth will enter her 61st year in the monarchy on the day of the release of “Don’t Look Back.” It is clear she has witnessed countless moments in history for her country from her position, but for me, the one that changed it all was the British Invasion of MUSIC when the Beatles performed on the Ed Sullivan Show on Feb 2, 1964. On “Don’t Look Back,” a certain key figure’s father may or may not have been influential in that significant moment in Rock and Roll, oh and World History as well…..
