In late 1963, at the age of seven, Vasquez had begun paying attention to a new musical sound while listening to the radio. During that year (and prior), it was highly unusual to be listening to present-day rock/pop/R&B music that originated from Europe. In the United States, top contemporary recording artists in 1963 included about a dozen new artists from Detroit’s “Motown Records”, The Beach Boys, Leslie Gore, Bobby Vinton, Peter, Paul & Mary, Bobby Darin, Dion & The Belmonts, The Orlons, The Four Seasons, Lou Christie, The Crystals, The Shirelles, Roy Orbison, Elvis Presley, Bobby Vee, and many more American recording artists.

However, throughout 1964, his collective musical attention shifted across the pond, to the newly released music from Britain, that had reached the American airwaves. Music enthusiast at the time, had coined this period as “The British Invasion”.

Besides The Beatles, other new British recording artists soon followed and caught his attention including, The Dave Clark Five, Peter & Gordon, The Animals, Gerry & The Pacemakers, Billy J. Kramer, Manfred Mann, The Zombies, The Kinks, The Searchers, Herman’s Hermits, The Mindbenders, The Moody Blues, The Rolling Stones and many more that came along shortly afterwards, like The Who, Yardbirds, Dusty Springfield, Petula Clark and The Hollies.

In addition to his work as a Beatles historian and author, Vasquez is also a sought-after speaker on the topic of the Beatles. He has given talks with students, sharing his knowledge and passion for the group, with audiences young and old. Vasquez’s contributions to the field of music history are invaluable, and his dedication to the Beatles is unwavering as seen in this YouTube video interview, with the staff from Finances, The Other “F” Word.
