Today In Beatles History

July 28, 1968

Paul McCartney hired esteemed war photographer Don McCullin to spend a day photographing The Beatles. The group was in need of new publicity images and wanted to get away from the recording studio temporarily. The chosen day for the photo shoot was 28 July 1968. The Beatles were joined by not only McCullin but five others with cameras – Ronald Fitzgibbon, Stephen Goldblatt, Tom Murray, Tony Bramwell and Mal Evans – plus Yoko Ono, McCartney’s girlfriend Francie Schwartz, and Gary Evans, Mal’s six-year-old son.

You took that coloured photo from koolkitty9. Stop stealing, fag.

1) No I did not. I saw last night what truthaboutbeatlegirls (I think that’s how the URL is) commented when they reblogged the post and I’ve been going through the photos I’ve liked on Instagram, looking for the post, which the account posted at least a week ago.

2) That word, “fag”, was completely uncalled for. Stealing, giving hate or anything else, there is no good situation where it is good to use that disgusting word. I’d say that I expect an apology but seeing how stubborn people on here tend to be, I don’t really expect anything from you. Especially since you’re on anon which I guess magically gives anybody the right to use those words.


Please don’t use that word against anybody else.
