Great thread title! 

The meeting and bonding between the 'exis' and the Beatles is fascinating to me, because I love the notion (true) that there were all these little mini-countercultures in the early '60s - Greenwich Village folk musicians, avant-garde jazz musicians, beatnik-poets/artists, rock-and-rollers - who basically had little to do with one another; and so the meeting between the Beatles and exis would turn out to be a really important one in the years hence, like the Beatles meeting Dylan, for the way it built a bridge between two little tiny minor scenes. Like two raindrops forming one big raindrop, and eventually becoming one huge puddle by decade's end.

Apologies for being an arsehole but you're using 'ironically' incorrectly the OED defines 'irony' as:

Happening in a way contrary to what is expected, and typically causing wry amusement because of this.

e.g ‘it was ironic that now everybody had plenty of money for food they couldn't obtain it because everything was rationed’
 
The word you are looking for is something akin to 'coincidentally'.

I've always been fascinated with Klaus' importance to the group. A completely underrated musician, he had the same artistic instincts, and the benefit of being around "before". He was trusted by John and George particularly. One of the teary moments for me in the Concert For George is where he quietly plays some bass in the background on a song.

Here's some photos of Astrid with George and Paul from 1963 while on holiday in Tenerife. I will forever be jealous of the time Astrid got to spend with the boys!

beatlemaniacs_02_gifbeatlemaniacs_02_gifbeatlemaniacs_02_gifbeatlemaniacs_02_gif I smiled throughout the entire video, Klaus and Paul are just too cute! When Paul pulled out the harpsichord from Because and then mentioned bringing the instruments from Abbey Road "home"... it all just made my heart happy! I'd give anything to just be able to sit down and listen to those two tell stories for hours.

I must say, Klaus, besides being a fabulous artist and a highly underrated musician, was a very handsome young man and quite adorable old too. He reminds me of some German elfin creature from the Black Forest. 

I confess to a degree of jealousy -- intimates of the Beatles (especially George), successful and fabulous bassist and visual artist -- that sounds like a career I'd be interested in, to say the least!
