Busy Day In The Beatles History Book
On this day in 1964, The Beatles played the Hollywood Bowl. A mediocre live recording of the concert was finally released in 1977.
On this day in 1966, New York police managed to talk two teenagers down from a 22nd-floor ledge where they had threatened to commit suicide unless they met The Beatles. Instead, the girls were sent to Roosevelt Hospital to get their heads examined, then were charged with disturbing the peace. And all they really wanted was a little Beatle love!
On this day in 1968, a day before their sixth anniversary, John Lennon‘s wife, Cynthia, sued The Beatle for divorce after discovering Yoko Ono living in their London home. Definitely not the kind of anniversary gift or home accessorizing she had in mind.
On this day in 1969, The Beatles were together for the last time in one room. The four gathered at John Lennon‘s Tittenhurst Park home just outside of London for a photo shoot for the cover of the “Hey Jude” album.
