@skydiamonds Welcome to the forum.

The man in the bow tie is television and radio presenter Brian Matthew:

Brian-Matthew.jpgImage Enlarger

He hosted Saturday Club and Top Gear on BBC Radio, and Thank Your Lucky Stars on ITV.

The picture looks to be 1964, so I would suggest it likely that it was taken backstage during an appearance on one of those three shows (Matthew also presented Easy Beat for BBC Radio, but all The Beatles appearances on that show were in 1963, which looks too early for me).

I hope this is of some help.

Hi Ron

I have had a look at pictures of Brian Mathew with the Beatles in 1963-4 online and he looks a lot older than the chap in my photo. There is an uncanny resemblance. he does looks like a younger version of Brian Mathew. Any further ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Best Regards

 

Chris

Isn't this the same guy?

The guy above is Bernie Andrews.

I will admit I find it difficult to identify anyone.

Hi Meanmistermustard

 

Thank you for the pic and info. Another presenter who looks a bit like him (however, on closer inspection of the facial features, I do not think he's my man)! Did they clone presenters in the 60's!

Thanks

Chris

Glad you put them all back, @BeatleSoul. I was all a-hard-days-night-ringo-6 when I came back to find all but the first gone.

The first:

x2.jpg

was taken during an enforced stopover at the Key Wester Motel in Key West, Florida on 10 September 1964.

(They were meant to be having a day off in Jacksonville, but were diverted due to a hurricane. Interestingly, when Paul sings, "What about the night we cried / Because there wasn't any reason left to keep it all inside," in his tribute to John, Here Today , he is referring to that night. Read about it all in Joe's article.)

The next two photos of George, while the exact date is uncertain, are from Astrid Kirchherr's first photo session with The Beatles at the Hamburger Dom Fairground in October 1960.

One of my favourite Beatles photos ever was also taken that day:

Hamburger-Dom-Fairground.jpgImage Enlarger

I will get onto some of the others later, if I'm not beaten to it.

I did some checking - that was taken in Japan, during their 1966 tour of Japan. 

I also believe that was taken at the Budokan, from what I found.

Hope that helps!

@The Hole Got Fixed was pretty close. It's John returning to the Tokyo Hilton after a shopping trip and a visit to an art exhibition with Neil Aspinall on 1 July. Despite all the talk that they couldn't get out of the hotel during this trip, they did. On the same day Paul managed to sneak out with Mal to do some sightseeing, as shown by these photos of Paul and Mal near the Imperial Palace:

Here's another picture of John returning to the hotel:

Pool and elevator written in English in a Japanese hotel in the 1960's.

While in Japan on that 1966 tour, John had no idea he would meet a woman of Japanese heritage (Yoko) just 4 months later.

A picture of John on a bicycle in a pool in this article: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/ne.....llery.html

The caption says:

A never-before seen image of John Lennon riding a bike in a pool at a party in Los Angeles (pictured) will be one of many rare items on sale at Darryn Lyons' new gallery

Which party do you think it is? Do you think the caption is right that it is a party in LA?

There's a picture of John and Paul further down in that article.

That pool actually reminds me a lot of that scene from Help ! where they're in the pool...

My thought is that it doesn't look like a party, @Ahhh Girl.

It looks more like they're doing something and it's attracted a crowd of onlookers, many of whom look like tourists.

My suggestion would be filming Help in the Bahamas in late February/early March 1965.

The second picture could also well be from the Bahamas Help filming.

Second photo is 100% from filming Help! in the Bahamas, here's another photo of Paul and John at the Bahamas in which they're both wearing the same exact outfits.

I wouldn't doubt it if the first photo was taken in the Bahamas as well.

We're right. That news site is wrong.

You can see the same sloped roof in this picture.

Looking lead me to this picture. This could be a picture of McCartney on his vacation last year.
