On this day, Paul McCartney visited the Robert Fraser Gallery for the opening of an exhibition by American sculptor Claes Oldenburg. John Lennon was present as well; it was the second time he met with Yoko Ono.
Tuesday, November 22nd, 1966 John and Yoko re-entered each other’s orbit shortly thereafter, once more through the influence of the art world; this time it was at the Robert Fraser Gallery on Duke Street. John remembered, “The second time I met her at a gallery opening of Claes Oldenburg in London. We were very shy, we nodded at each other and we didn’t know—she was standing behind me, I looked away because I’m very shy with people, especially chicks. We just smiled and stood frozen together in this cocktail party thing.” Yoko recalled the contrast in his appearance: “John was probably up all night. I don’t know what he was doing but he looked like a totally different person—unshaven, looking very sort of, uh, angry, and he was — I just was amazed at — it was the person I met in the Indica Gallery.“From “Lennonology” by Chip Madinger, Scott Raile

"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!
