"One day while John was recording, the studio receptionist brought in a litter of kittens. John immediately knew what I was thinking and said, "No, we can’t, we’re traveling too much." I picked up a black one and put him over my shoulder. When I came back into the recording room with him, John rolled his eyes and said, "Now you’ve done it! Now you’ve done it!" I had a moment of wondering what I’d done, when he came over, started petting him, and said, "Well I guess we have to have a cat" At the end of the day when we were leaving the studio, John asked if there were any left. We went back to get the only kitten that remained- a white one that no one wanted because she was so loud. John christened them Major and Minor. He loved those cats. They reminded him of his days with Aunt Mimi (whom he playfully referred to as the “Cat Woman”).” -May Pang

all-about-history:

Rare photos of The Beatles that will be featured in a book titled “Some Fun Tonight” which will be released February 7, 2014.

The photos were taken in Los Angeles, during a break in their final tour in August 1966. (Although the photo of John certainly doesn’t look like ‘66).

"This fiery halo appeared over Julian’s head as the polaroid developed, which prompted John to quip, ‘My boy’s pretty hot stuff.’" -May Pang

Feb. 1981. Montserrat.

"These are two people kissing me: it looks like Paul and Linda.

I can even recognise them without their heads! Who took these shots? They are the worst shots ever; nobody’s got a head!
My friendship with Paul goes way back. He was in that band we put together with John and George. I don’t know why they were kissing me. Maybe they just couldn’t help themselves. I’m dressed really smartly here, look at this: a tie with a pin.”

"Each person has to find for himself a way for inner realisation. I still believe that’s the only reason we’re on this planet. It’s like going to school again: each soul is potentially divine and the goal is to manifest that divinity. Everything else is secondary." - George Harrison

"This was taken by Mum or Dad. What I remember best of this time are the cozzies [bathing costumes]. They were made of wool, and as you went through the water they became heavier and heavier until they’d start slipping down and eventually the bloody things came off.
We were typical brothers, always fighting (and we still are). Paul was bigger and stronger than me at first, and when he started to put on some puppy fat, the only way I could get back at him was by calling him ‘Fattie.’”
- Mike McCartney

Ringo at home: “I’m still wearing all the rings, and this is the St. Francis necklace that my auntie got me, which was ripped off in New York. That necklace has a story. My auntie bought it for me, but when we were in New York, kids jumped on our backs and stole it. I went on [local DJ] Cousin Brucie’s radio show and said, ‘I’ll give you a kiss if you bring me back my necklace.’ A girl turned up with the necklace, so I gave her a kiss, and I’ve still got it. The fans didn’t really attack us a lot, so these kids just got lucky. We would go out quite a bit, in those days, but it would start getting really crazy later on.” [X]
