February Beatles Blog # 17

by David Louis

You say it's your birthday? George's birthday too, yeah! 

His 21st birthday on this day in 1964. Some fans even sent him a door to go with the keys girls would send him. There's nothing like 52 sacks of mail to show him he may have been the quiet Beatle, but loved just the same.

They celebrated George's birthday over Chateaubriand at the Ivy Restaurant in London.

Other Beatle Birthdays during the year they invaded America included Ringo's on July 7th, spent on the TV show "Top of the Pops" and John Lennon's on October 9th was spent appearing on a British TV show where they performed "She Loves You". The most infamous birthday that year was Paul's on June 18th. A party was thrown at his Aunt Jin's (Aunty Jin. "Let Em' In"). John got plastered and went after Cavern Club D.J. Bob Wooler , who insinuated John and Brian Epstein had a romantic Holiday. It changed John's life and was the last fight ever had.
