IN 1964 THE BEATLES CAME TO HOLLYWOOD

Photo: Bob Bonis

Rolling Stone featured some Lost Beatles photos in their last issue and we love this one from their first visit to Los Angeles. They arrived her in August, 1964, for their concert at the Hollywood Bowl. The Ambassador Hotel cancelled their reservations because they were afraid of the mobs of fans that followed The Beatles. British actor Reginald Owen saved the day and rented his Bel Air mansion (above) to them for the four days they were in town.

    Man, I look at the photo and see those incredibly young and talented kids with an amazing future ahead of them…….and of course, one that will be silenced far too early.

    I saw this pic a while back in either the L.A. Times or S.F. Chronicle.
    Excellent snapshot of the Mad Men era.
    Ringo is hiding a doobie in his right hand.
    American? W.T.F. Beatles, Stones, KinKs,Yardbirds/Zepplin!
    If it ended at Moptops that would have been sad indeed.
    Now go back to waving your arms like a seagull and staring at the lino.

    PIT: I agree with you completely! And I feel sorry for the kids and youth of today who can never feel or experience what we grew up thru. It truly was a magical time.

NEW UPDATE CHECK IT OUT - HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT!

  • Blind Item: America’s Sweetheart Battling A Drug Addiction?
    |

    BLIND_ITEM_NEW_#CUT

    One of America’s Sweethearts is battling a serious drug addiction- not hers, but her best friend’s. Through the years these two have been stuck to one another like white on rice and her fame rubbed off on her pal. They’ve been roomies, have worked together on set, and even launched a business venture together. But all that success has come with a price. After years of being sober, the less famous friend has fallen HARD off the wagon and our gal doesn’t know what to do. She’s hosted an intervention, hired an addiction specialist, and even threatened to end the friendship, but nothing seems to work. What’s a girl to do?
