John Lennon apologises for assaulting Bob Wooler

Two days after he assaulted Cavern Club DJ Bob Wooler for insinuating he had had an affair with Brian Epstein, John Lennon sent a telegram to apologise.

The incident took place at Paul McCartney’s 21st birthday party on 18 June 1963.

The telegram was sent on Epstein’s orders, and read: “Really sorry Bob. Terribly worried to realise what I had done. What more can I say?”
