Paul at 2 in the morning

Here is another story from Bravo magazine  (#43 from 1968) that Andrea from That Eventuality  sent to me to share on this blog.  She is so sweet because she sent me several of these and even translated them for me.   

Ringo in the crowd

Johann snapped this photo of Paul at the Beatles party.  He had to wait!
"Paul came at two in the morning

. When I was in London recently, I by chance got hold of a ticket for the party The Beatles were having hosting for the launch of their film "Yellow Submarine."

The party began at around 11 p.m. at the Royal Lancaster Hotel. In front of the entrance to the basement party room, a man dressed as a "Nowhere Man" stood and greeted people. He only allowed people with invitation cards to enter.

Among the guests were The Marmalade, Jane Asher and many models. There was as much of a cold buffet and champagne as you could eat and drink. At around 1 a.m., the first of the Beatles to appear was Ringo with his wife Maureen. He seemed to feel - at least that was how it appeared to me - a little lost among the many guests. Which is why he didn't hang around at the party for very long. At around 2 in the morning, Paul McCartney and John Lennon showed up. Paul was immediately surrounded by lots of people. He felt visibly more comfortable in the throng than Ringo had. Unfortunately, George Harrison did not attend the party. That was too bad, because I would have liked to have seen all of The Beatles "live." But even so, it was a great experience!"
