Lizzie's gift to John and Yoko




Here are some photos from Lizzie's files. Obviously she did not take these photographs because she is in them. Lizzie knitted some baby items for Yoko (who sadly lost the baby) and John's new child and they are smiling because of the gifts.




It is also worth mentioning that today marks 42 years since Lizzie and Gayleen sang with the guys on "Across the Universe." What a wonderful day to remember!

  5. hi everyone! i just saw that article, two friends sent it to me. it was nice, but they called us apple scruffs and the scruffs didn't come about until 1969 so i wrote them a comment. i hope sean ended up wearing the knitted items, they were made with much love. have a great day!

  6. Had wondered about the tag as its now applied to 1967 pictures,I know Apple existed then but only odd references like Pepper sleeve.
    But Id wondered if George had invented it on ATMP,but no.
    When did the term first catch on/appear,in print presumably?

  7. Over the years the term "Apple Scruffs" seems to be used to mean any of the fans who hung around the Beatles recording studios / homes regardless of the year. I think this is because so little true information about the Scruffs is out there. So people (including myself at one time) just lumped all of the fans who were there as "Apple Scruffs." That is why I have been trying my best to research the truth about this small group of fans and post my findings here. I believe the term first was used in late 1969???

  8. you're right, sara. late 1969. i can't remember the exact month. maybe some of the anonymous scruffs who write here could give the precise answer... but the name certainly didn't apply to all fans.

  9. Yes the name Apple Scruffs came about in late 1969 and included some Regulars from earlier years. I was one of the Regulars too. Apple Scruff Anonymous.

  10. I just saw something in my diaries. It mentioned a "Cavendish Union" and "EMI Regulars". I certainly belonged to both! And you, my dear Apple Scruff Anonymous, whoever you are, certainly must have too!
