Ed Logan meets the Beatles

A very nice reader of this blog, Oak Kelsey, sent me a link to this photo. The guy who is NOT wearing the BBC jacket is Ed Logan, who was a saxophone player that ended up playing with Elvis on my favorite Elvis song, In the Ghetto as well as playing on many other well-known songs. But here Ed (who passed away in 2000) is posing with The Beatles. Does anyone reading this know the event and the other guys with the Fab 4?

    1. Ed Logan is on the bottom right.We went to high school together and were room mates while he played with the Bill Black Combo.I almost got to go on the tour.

  3. I attended school at Levi with Ed in Memphis in 1955 where he and I began music lessons. We later attended school at Whitehaven High. I remember Ed being allowed to finish school early to go on tour with Elvis. I last saw Ed in 1987 playing sax with a country band. Who would have ever thought it?
