Was the press conference held in the locker room?
Excellent group shots.
Yep…the 1966 Washington D.C. concert was held in the “backstage” area which was a locker room. What I never understand is what is that Beatles poster hanging up behind them?
Probably made by a fan and presented to them backstage and someone hung it up as a backdrop for the photo/press conference.
no pickguard for beatle paul. love, a friend.
