The Beatles: On this day in music history

February 18

Most music mavens know that The Beatles were a Brit band founded in 1960. They were perhaps the most critically and commercially successful groups in history. The line-up from 1962 on included: John Lennon (guitar, keys, and vocals), Paul McCartney (bass, keys, guitar and vocals), George Harrison (guitar, keys and vocals) and Ringo Starr (drums, percussion, piano and vocals).

On this day in music history, there were several Beatles-related moments.  The events date from 1964 through 2000.


The Beatles and Cassius Clay

On this day in 1964 The Beatles are photographed with Cassius Clay.

On this day in 1965 The Beatles are in the studio mixing and remixing “Ticket To Ride“, “Another Girl“, “I Need You” and “Yes It Is“.   That afternoon they record takes of “You’ve Got To Hide Your Love Away” and mix “The Night Before” and “You Like Me Too Much”.  That night they also work on “If You’ve Got Trouble” and “Tell Me What You See”.  With the exception of Andy White this is the first time they bring in an outside musician.    They bring in Johnnie Scott to play tenor and alto flute on  “You’ve Got To Hide Your Love Away”.

On this day in 1971, one day before court proceedings,  the papers release three additional reasons why McCartney wants to leave the Beatles:
1. Allen Klein attempted to delay the release of McCartney.
2. ABKCO changed McCartney’s song “The Long And Winding Road” without his consent.
3. ABKCO, transferred the rights of the movie Let It Be from Apple to United Artists without McCartney’s consent.

On this day in 1974 McCartney releases the single “Jet“/”Let Me Roll It” in the U.S.  Also on this day Starr releases the single “Oh My My“/”Step Lightly” in the U.S.


Paul McCartney 1974

On this day in 1993 McCartney starts off his “The New World Tour” by performing at The Forum in Assage, Italy.

On this day in 2000 A U.S. court ordered the release of FBI files relating to Lennon‘s activities and interests including his support for the Workers Revolutionary Party and the Irish Republican cause.   The British Government told U.S. officials they preferred the files remain secret due in part to the fact that their organization, MI5, had files on Lennon which they had sent to the FBI in the 1970s.
