I live about 6 miles north of Golspie where John had a car crash in 1969 and often think of the great man when I drive through, wondering whereabouts he came off the road. The Lawson hospital is still there and I have made the odd unscheduled visit there myself, although I doubt my attendance had quite the same impact as his!

I believe he had relatives up here somewhere and really loved this part of the world, although that could have been a sales pitch by the Scottish Tourist Board, I suppose. a-hard-days-night-john-6

There is an old building in my city that used to be a hotel that was owned by Doris Day, and The Beatles stayed there when they played here. A girl had her face pressed into the glass window of the lobby by the weight of the mob of fans trying to get into the hotel, and she had to go to the hospital to be treated for cuts when the window shattered. I often pass by the building.

A great idea for a thread!

Whenever I am in Hamburg I am feeling so great knowing that the Beatles have been here once and that they would maybe not have become what they became without playing in the Indra and the Kaiserkeller and meeting Astrid, Klaus, and Jürgen. I’ve also seen the stage they used to play on (Indra) it’s so tiny it’s a miracle how they managed to stand there with all their instruments and everything.

Not once does the diversity seem forced -- the genius of the record is how the vaudevillian "When I'm 64" seems like a logical extension of "Within You Without You" and how it provides a gateway to the chiming guitars of "Lovely Rita. - Stephen T. Erlewine on Sgt Pepper's
