The fact of the matter is that this strange book someone got all of Datebook magazine photographs from the North American 1966 tour and published them in this book. I have been spending all night scanning and have found some real gems in this book that I will be sharing with you because you all know that I am obsessed (and I mean obsessed) with the North American 1966 Beatles tour. One of the gems I found in the book was this cute one of John with a journalist. It was taken in Seattle before the press conference. Don't you just adore the look on John's face???

This is what it says at the "Something about Pattie Boyd" (yahoo group) about this photograph.
Ruth Taciniewski & her sister, from Germany, spent over 45 minutes visiting with George & Pattie at their home. Pattie said she often had problems with the neighbors because of the fans and that it was difficult to shop anywhere unidentified so she would have to escape quickly. George confided that he & the Beatles bought their sunglasses at Biba's - very cheap! Ruth took 20 photos & offered them for sale thru Bravo mag. From the German mag Bravo, July 24, 1967. .

I found this photo on the Jane Asher Photo Blog (where I noticed items I posted on my flickr account with my captions word-for-word). Obviously the photo originally was off ebay and so I think the blogger just took the caption the ebay seller wrote. But here is what it says,
PAUL McCARTNEY AND GEORGE HARRISON WENT TO MALMOE, SWEDEN IN OCTOBER, 1967...TO GO AND "MEDITATE" UNDER THE GUIDANCE OF MAHARACHI MARESH...AND PAUL TOOK A "COMPANION" WITH HIM FOR THE COURSE, NAMED ELISABETH ARONSSON. ...
To me it looked like a fan photo from Magical Mystery Tour (the sweater....). The time-period is right (Oct. '67) but this is the first I ever heard of Elisabeth Aronsson.

I went on down to Paul's house, but he wasn't there. I and some other girls thought we might as well go when all of a sudden Mal Evans' car pulled up. We walked up to the car and saw that John Lennon was in it.
At first he was annoyed with us - I can't remember why exactly; something to do with Yoko Ono - but when he got out of the car one of us made some joke and that made him laugh. He then did a sort of quick step or sexy shuffle, and then he came back over to us, bowed and said 'Thank you.' Then he went into Paul's house.
Then a Mercedes drove up and out stepped Paul. One of the girls said, "you've got nice eyes, Paul.'
And he fluttered them and said, 'Thank you.'
Then one of the girls made a remark about his yellow socks and his pink suit being nice. And he said, 'do you really like them?' and this girl said that she thought the yellow socks were really great and went with the pink suit.
Paul said, 'oh really? No one else thinks so.' Then he lifted up his trouser leg to show the girls his yellow socks. He was so funny and it was so good to see him in that mood.
Then George arrived and he beckoned to me to come over to him. He said, 'I remember you. You'd been up to my home in Surrey last Sunday. Well, see you around.'
And I said, 'More than likely.'
George went into Paul's house and then Ringo drove up in typical good humour. He saw us all waving and he said, 'hello and goodbye,' and he went in.

Everyone was so upset when Ringo announced that he wasn't going to be signing any more autographs. I told everyone that Ringo wasn't going to be signing autographs for people who mail in requests. He was still going to sign autographs now and then (with peace and love). And guess what Ringo was doing here in this fan photo taken before the 2010 Grammy Awards Sunday night? Yep...signing autographs for charity. All hope isn't lost friends...
