Beatlemania and the Rolling Stones
Young people are crazy about the Beatles and not just because of their music - much to the bemusement of many older Berliners.
The Rolling Stones give a legendary concert in the West Berlin venue, the Waldbühne. The fans leave a trail of destruction in their wake.
East Berlin quickly uses the incident in its propaganda war against the West, classifying beat music as a decadent, Western influence and banning numerous bands.
