I want to hold their hand-The Beatles

 

 

 

 

 

If you ever saw my Beatles bumper sticker, you would know that these men hold a very special place in my heart. This weekend I  laid low and didn’t go out and instead read my magazines and listened to A LOT of Beatles. And when I say A LOT I mean, my neighbors probably can recite all the classics of the 60’s by now. ( I can, since I was 15, of course).

In 1964, U.K. photographer Harry Benson was invited to accompany the Beatles to Paris. As a result of this amazing journey, a fantastic new book has been published in June by Taschen, titled The Beatles On the Road 1964-1966 Luckily I have gotten a chance to browse this publication (and if anyone wants to pitch in $700, I will gladly purchase it for my collection), with excitement and childish joy. Here, I share some of the images from the book and hopefully you can hum the Yellow Submarine, or, I am sorry to say, we cannot be friends…
