Dieter Bohlen, the German pop titan, celebrates his 60 birthday. One who is getting better as he is getting older. Those who wanted to get anywhere with their music in Germany after 1972, had to appear for the German audience on Saturday afternoon, when everyone was watching in a tv show called ‘Musicladen’. Those who want to pick the pop titan’s brain will have to watch every season of the German talent super star show DSDS on tv with Bohlen as one of the jury members.
Fifty years ago today, on February 7, 1964, the Beatles made their famous appearance in America. Hidden in their well-documented history is also invaluable business lessons. Even though their actions are now a half a century old, today’s business leader could learn from The Beatles’ tour-de-force in building creative environments, alternative market strategies and teamwork cultures.
