Black and white photographs of The Beatles, including Pete Best, taken by Albert Marrion on Sunday 17 December 1961. Marrion, a local Liverpool photographer, was hired by The Beatles’ new manager, Brian Epstein, to take a few photographs of the band.
On Saturday December 9th, 1961 The Beatles played at the Palais Ballroom, Aldershot with only 18 people attending, but a splendid time was guaranteed for all…
On New Year’s Eve 1961 the Beatles went to London and the following day they were auditioned by Decca producer Tony Meehan.
The Beatles’ audition tape that was infamously rejected by a record company boss – because he thought guitar groups were ‘on the way out’ – is now to be auctioned with a pre-sale estimate of £30,000.
