Out there with Mal Evans

It was 50 years ago today that Paul McCartney and Mal Evans left the hotel room and saw some of Japan---for something like 6 entire minutes.  


  1. Wow! Rare photos. Never knew these existed. Even in 6 minutes there was a photographer? Maybe it was Robert Whittaker? (MarkZapp)

    1. These are photos that I have had in my files for a very long time, but just today I found ones in better quality and new ones from this set! Some reason I don't think it was Whitaker taking the photos, as they have never been in any of his photo books that I recall. Maybe someone from the Japanese press?

  2. It’s really interesting to see rare photographs and footage of them during their touring days and these photos belie the long-held belief that they were “confined” to their hotel rooms for security reasons.

    For years, it never occurred to me that, according to Ringo, The Beatles never intended to cease touring for good.
