After completing their second concert at New York’s Shea Stadium on August 23, 1966, The Beatles promptly flew to Los Angeles, arriving in the early hours of August 24 for a day of well-deserved rest. During their brief stay in Beverly Hills, they lodged at 7655 Curson Terrace, a property rented by their manager, Brian Epstein.

The Beatles were visited by several notable guests, including their former press officer Derek Taylor, as well as David Crosby, from The Byrds, and Brian and Carl Wilson, from The Beach Boys.

Later that evening, The Beatles held a press conference at the Capitol Records Tower and were presented with gold records by both Capitol Records and the RIAA for their latest LP, “Revolver“. The celebrations continued with a party organized by Capitol Records’ president Alan Livingstone.

On August 25, The Beatles flew to Seattle for two performances at the Coliseum before returning to Los Angeles that evening for another two days of rest on August 26 and 27.

The Beatles Diary Volume 1: The Beatles Years

"With greatly expanded text, this is the most revealing and frank personal 30-year chronicle of the group ever written. Insider Barry Miles covers the Beatles story from childhood to the break-up of the group."

We owe a lot to Barry Miles for the creation of those pages, but you really have to buy this book to get all the details - a day to day chronology of what happened to the four Beatles during the Beatles years!

If we like to think, in all modesty, that the Paul McCartney Project is the best online ressource for everything Paul McCartney, The Beatles Bible is for sure the definitive online site focused on the Beatles. There are obviously some overlap in terms of content between the two sites, but also some major differences in terms of approach.
