What The Beatle Girls Taught Me
  • Cynthia Powell: The first boy you fall in love with might not be with you forever.
  • Linda Eastman: You don't need to wear makeup to be beautiful
  • Pattie Boyd: You can always be flawless if you believe you are
  • Maureen Cox: If it's your dream to marry someone in a band, never lose hope
  • Yoko Ono: Stand by your man no matter what people say about you
  • Jane Asher: If a guy wants you to give up your dreams and ambitions to be with him, don't do it

“Maureen’s not gonna be my wife, but I have other ideas for her. Maureen is to be my personal secretary. She can give my Mum and Dad a hand with the fan mail.”

[Ringo, 29th May, 1964]


“We’re not getting married, that’s for sure!”

[Maureen Cox, 29th May, 1964]


Ringo and Maureen hold a press conference and pose for photos at Whaddon House on the 29th May, 1964 to answer rumours they were to be married. Instead of his wife, Ringo said Maureen was to be his secretary. They’d just returned to London after a holiday in the Virgin Islands with Paul and Jane. Look at these photos! Who were they trying to kid?!

John and Cynthia and Ringo and Maureen getting a bite to eat in the bar of the Saville Theatre, on the 17th February, 1966. 

Brian Epstein was a leaseholder of the theatre and they’d just attended what was Brian’s directorial debut; a reading of A Smashing Day by Alan Plater at the nearby New Arts Theatre. They’d gone back to the Saville Theatre to celebrate. 

The play was unfortunately a resounding flop (although it’d done well in Stoke-On-Trent the previous year, before Brian got involved) and was to be Brian’s only foray into theatre direction.
