Something I'm curious about.
@LikeASir Yes, The Beatles did have groupies. They were called Apple Scruffs.
Here's a link to one of Joe's pages that mentions them.
You will find them mentioned in various threads around the forum.
Hopefully someone (hint, hint @AppleScruffJunior ) will add a little bit more to this thread to give us a little more insight about them.
Did you call?
Pretty much what everyone else said, the Scruffs were the more innocent fans who hung outside the Apple building, Abbey Road and Paul's house (and breaking into Paul's house, obviously). They were just avid fan girls (and boys) who basically used to stalk them (meaning no harm- of course).
Some of them eventually ended up working with the lads and kind of becoming their friends. They weren't 'groupies' in that their main aim wasn't to sleep with one of the Beatles, they just want to be a part of their world. However, one of them, Carol Bedford got close to George but nothing happened because she rejected him().
Of course if I was back in the 60s I would have fecked off no bother to London to become an Apple Scruff!
Speaking of which if anyone has a PDF of 'Waiting For The Beatles: An Apple Scruff's story', I will send you a cookie!
Seriously though- I want that book!!!
Stalking and breaking into houses... Lovely! The way you put that just seems funny, but they seem interesting, I bet it was a lot of fun....
