“She said to me, ‘I must touch you as you’ve been in the same room as The Beatles’.”
[David Magnus, on the effects of Beatlemania]
More ‘unseen’ photos taken by David Magnus from ‘The Beatles Unseen: Photographs by David Magnus’ exhibition at Proud Chelsea next month (though, I’m sure you will have seen some of these!). These photos were taken on the 24th and 25th June, 1967, during the rehearsals and recording of the BBC’s ‘Our World’. programme.
The exhibition starts 16th March 2017 and runs until 14th May 2017.
I think the top photo of George and John is my new favourite picture of them!

George photographed in Studio Three, EMI Studios, Abbey Road while the Beatles worked on All You Need Is Love on the 19th June 1967, in preparation for the upcoming Our World Live broadcast on the 25th June.
“Because of the mood of the time, it seemed to be a great idea to perform that song while everybody else was showing knitting in Canada or Irish clog dances in Venezuela. We thought, ‘Well, we’ll sing “All You Need Is Love”, because it’s a subtle bit of PR for God.”
