Unpublished early color photographs of the Beatles’ first U.S. tour will be sold at a U.K. auction. The photos were taken during the band’s 1964 visit to the U.S., when color film was expensive and most images of the group were in black and white. The collection of 65 slides contains many stage shots, including George Harrison with his legendary red Rickenbacker guitar and close-up portraits from a Las Vegas Sahara Hotel press conference and Las Vegas Convention Centre gig. The images were taken by Dr. Robert Beck, who died in 2002 and left them in an archive of photographs and slides in his Hollywood home. Omega Auctions said Sunday the images will be sold March 22nd – exactly 50 years after the Beatles released their first album.
The Smoking Gun brings us an inside look at what it took to host the band at a concert venue back in the day. Most interesting of the 'demands' is #5. Documents HERE
The son of John Lennon says that the lead singer of U2’s eyesight is deteriorating. Julian Lennon told the Irish Daily Star that Bono’s eye condition, which makes him particularly sensitive to light, is getting worse. “Bono actually has a condition with his eyes,” said Lennon. “I don’t know the exact issue but the brightness of the sun hurts them and it’s a deteriorating issue.” He added of the singer’s trademark sunglasses, which are in part to combat the condition, “It’s part of his image. In some senses it was lucky but not really of course. Maybe it’s part of his process now and without the image he can’t be Bono.”
