#OTD #1963 The band has a promotional photographic session with Angus McBean at EMI House, for what would become the cover of Please Please Me: 窶弩e weren窶冲 even allowed into the control room, then. It was Us and Them. They had white shirts and ties in the control room, they were grown-ups. In the corridors and back rooms there were guys in full-length lab coats, maintenance men and engineers, and then there was us, the tradesmen. (窶ヲ) We gradually became the workmen who took over the factory. In the end, we had the run of the whole building." - Paul

50 years ago, #OTD, George and John set off for Maharishi Mahesh Yogi's #ashram in #Rishikesh, #India. Ringo and Paul arrived a few days later. 縲ーク Paul: 窶廬 think by 1968 we were all a bit exhausted, spiritually. We窶囘 been The Beatles, which was marvellous. We窶囘 tried for it not to go to our heads and we were doing quite well - we weren窶冲 getting too spaced out or big-headed - but I think generally there was a feeling of: 窶郎eah, well, it窶冱 great to be famous, it窶冱 great to be rich - but what窶冱 it all for?窶吮 縲ーク Whilst they were there, they created many of the compositions that would become songs on the 窶#WhiteAlbum窶. 縲ーク John: 窶弋he funny thing about the camp was that although it was very beautiful and I was meditating about eight hours a day, I was writing the most miserable songs on earth. In 窶郎er Blues窶, when I wrote, 窶露窶冦 so lonely I want to die,窶 I窶冦 not kidding. That窶冱 how I felt. Up there trying to reach God and feeling suicidal. (窶ヲ) I think we all go through heaven and hell everyday; just accept that. To feel is to live.窶 Photo ツゥ Apple Corps Ltd.

#OTD #1964 #TheBeatles perform live for the first time in the US - on CBS窶冱 Ed Sullivan Show. "Seventy-three million people were reported to have watched the first show. It is still supposed to be one of the largest viewing audiences ever in the States." - Paul "We were aware that Ed Sullivan was the big one because we got a telegram from Elvis and the Colonel. And I've heard that while the show was on there were no reported crimes, or very few. When The Beatles were on Ed Sullivan, even the criminals had a rest for ten minutes." - George

#OTD  #1964 #TheBeatles begin their first US visit with a (hilarious) press conference at Kennedy Airport, New York. 窶廬t was so exciting. On the plane, flying in to th airport, I felt as though there was a big octopus with tentacles that were grabbing the plane and dragging us down into New York. America was the best. It was a dream, coming from Liverpool.窶 - Ringo
