We have been hearing about albums leaking online since the turn of the millennium. However, premature releases to the public date back half a century. The “I Want to Hold Your Hand” single was leaked to radio in advance of its planned debut late in 1963. Capital Records attempted to legally prevent DJs from spinning the track, but finally relented and dropped the record early. By the time the Beatles played Sullivan, it had sold in the seven figures.

  1. that was the second most viewed TV thing to be viewed by people, beside the Elvis aloha from Hawaii concert in 1973.

    1. I agree with you, when it was said, it was a joke. If it wasn’t for Ringo Starr, no one would care about the drumming. He could just drum the song and you would know which song it was, he’s that good. Has his own style, by being left handed and I love it.

    1. I have heard so many drummers say Ringo is why they drum. I love his style, he said he plays left handed on a right handed kit and it just sounds great. I think Fennon or Faul said that as a joke. Ringo is for real.
