What period in The Beatles history would you go back to, if you could only stay for a day? Here are some examples
Would you:
See one of the first Quarrymen performances with only John?
Go back to July 6th 1957 and see the first Quarrymen performance that Paul saw?
Befriend them and go back to a Quarrymen/Silver Beetles rehearsal at Paul's house?
See George audition for The Quarrymen on the bus?
Go to Liverpool art college and stalk John and Stuart a-hard-days-night-george-10
Go to Hamburg 1960 and watch one of their early performances?
See them at The Cavern?
Go to The Ed Sullivan show performance?
A recording session at Abbey Road?
Be in "A Hard Day's Night/HELP!/Magical Mystery Tour?
Go to the Shea Stadium pe

^ Sorry my phone is being annoying
See Shea stadium concert?
Go to India with them in '68?
Go to a party/club which they/other celebrities are at in the 60s?
Watch a "Get Back/Let It Be" session ?
Or be in the background when they were
taking the Abbey Road album cover?
^^^^ These are just examples.
So what would you do?
Oh and if you're in A Hard Day's Night/HELP!/Magical Mystery Tour you are an extra i.e no speaking parts

I would say all, but that wouldn't be fair.

I've always wanted to go to the Shea Stadium concert or Ed Sullivan.

I'd say go to India with them, because it be just relaxing and an exciting trip to see new things with the Beatles, and it would be an easy way to just talk to them. Though I'd like to sit threw their recording of every song and yell at them "YOU'RE DOING IT ALL WRONG!" No, nevermind I'm not that cruel.ahdn_george_06

Same here. I'd go on a different night and we could compare notes: how many guitar solos in Roll Over Beethoven; how many fights there were; the many ways that the 5 (would need to see Stu playing) insulted the German audience. I'd need to go with either a couple of burly minders or in a impenetrable bubble to ensure i came out alive.

Me too :) or maybe see a Quarrymen/Silver Beetles rehearsal and secretly tape it with a high quality recorder and sell it for millions back to Paul a-hard-days-night-george-10 (why is my mind always on money at the moment O.o )

I would go to the Abbey Road cover photo shoot and yell, "LOOK OUT!!! A CAR!!!!" every 10 seconds. They'd probably get annoyed and make me go away. Oh, well. :D

And I'd also like to go to India with them. :)

I wouldn't have wanted to go to India, as I've suspected Something Happened between John and Paul that accelerated the break-up.

But I would have liked to have been one of the photographers for Mad Day Out. Any photo shoot, really, but especially that one.

It's too funny that this thread went up today because:

Choosing from the list, I would have to go with India.  I'd have to get Jane out of the picture…  ahdn_paul_02  but that would be easy enough.  a-hard-days-night-paul-7

I agree with Parlance, I would LOVE to have been there for the "Mad Day Out" photo session..  That would have been very excellent.

 

The meditation dome?  That would be sweet!  a-hard-days-night-john-1

"Please don't bring your banjo back, I know where it's been..  I wasn't hardly gone a day, when it became the scene..  Banjos!  Banjos!  All the time, I can't forget that tune..  and if I ever see another banjo, I'm going out and buy a big balloon!"

Tough question, I'd just pop up at the toilets while they're smoking pot before the MBE thingy, or on second thought any trip session. I'd slap the cig out of George, warn John about being popped off by some looney, tell Paul about what smoking's gonna do to him, and tell Ringo to go easy on the alcohol. Some time later they'll probably think I am just a hallucination a-hard-days-night-john-1. I might ask them to sign a few albums or two. But this would impact the world big-time.

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8I was watching the Anthology earlier, and it was just a cig that they smoked at the MBE, the pot thing was just a rumor.

It would be fun to be around while filming HELP, speaking of being baked…a-hard-days-night-john-1

The Delmonico Hotel in New York. 28 August 1964. Retreating to the bathroom because of all the police outside, Bob Dylan hands a joint to Ringo – The Beatles taster, expecting he'd know the etiquette. Ringo smokes the whole thing. What a night! According to Paul, there were at least seven levels…

LongHairedLady,  LOVE that Back to the Future reference.

A 'must' movie for anyone who hasn't seen it.

One of the (many) funny scenes in the movie was seeing a Florida baseball team in in the World Series. A Florida baseball team? What a crazy thought!

They were playing the Cubs – and alas, that's still preposterous.

I would go to The Dakota on December 8, 1980 and save John, so he and Yoko could make more amazing songs like "Walking on Thin Ice."

The movie that introduced lots of people to Johnny B. Goode, which I heard appears in the movie, because I haven't watched the movie yet.
