I'm curious, did Martin Luther King like The Beatles. It's pretty clear that The Beatles liked him due to both of them opposing the Vietnam War and The Beatles refusing to play to a segregated audience but I wonder if Martin Luther King was a fan of their music or at the very least liked them as people.

Who was Francie Schwartz? I know that she is/was American and she slept with McCartney,but I wasn't sure how that all came about. She was a good looking woman,Macca had good taste a-hard-days-night-john-1

Francie Schwartz was a 23 year old woman who had an affair with Paul McCartney while he was engaged with Jane. Although his relationship with her was short lived she did sing backing vocals on Revolution 1. Sadly she didn't like getting her picture taken so we have very few photos of her and most of the ones we do have of her only show her from the side or only show the top half of her face or only show her from behind etc.. Here's a picture of her.

Her relation started after she went to London to see if one of her movie scripts would get Apple's attention, she walked in while Paul was talking to some business contracts and love blossomed from there.

@Dark Overlord: Thanks for that. So it wasn't just an affair for her,she was actually in love with him? I also read that Jane caught them in bed together,but McCartney wasn't bothered, and carried on making love to her. If true,that seems a little cold

Martin Luther King Jr. had bigger fish to fry. Although the Beatles touched many not all were engrossed in them. He was probably into Otis Redding.

I've never seen her photo before, I imagined her to look totally different.

Who were the suggestions for the Sgt. Pepper album cover that were rejected? I read that John wanted Hitler and Jesus Christ included,but the record label rejected that,as they deemed it (understandably) too controversial.

 

Also,does anyone have any theories as to why Paul stands with his back to the camera? Ive heard that it was because his 'replacement' had scars from plastic surgery on his face (so it would have been obvious if he was facing the camera that it was another guy), and also that it was actually Neil Aspinall standing in for Paul on the day of shooting the pics for the album.....

This is another question whose answer is easily found in @Joe's article on the album.

He quotes Paul recalling for the Anthology project:

The photographer Robert Freeman had taken some pictures round at John's house in Weybridge.

So, the cover shot was taken in the grounds of Kenwood.

Not that I mind answering questions about The Beatles, but may I suggest you'd get an answer quicker to some of your questions by looking at Joe's article on the subject on the main site.

The main site contains a wealth of Beatley knowledge, and I cannot recommend exploring it's articles highly enough. Joe's got quite good Beatles knowledge. a-hard-days-night-george-10
