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!

  • HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT: LOOK WHO’S NOT TALKING ABOUT HARVEY WEINSTEIN !
    |

    We love every one of Harvey Weinstein’s female accusers – but what about the actresses who AREN’T talking? One actress who won an Oscar in the 90’s has been CONSPICUOUSLY SILENT about the casting couch scandal. It’s because SHE has had a long-term “arrangement” with Harvey in which she traded sex for showbiz favors and it must have been awful, but her career prospered. Now this A-lister is horrified at the prospect of being found out! And, guess what – she’s NOT the only one who’s conspicuously silent!
    Any guesses?
