The Beatles backstage at Busch

The Beatles had about four hours to kill backstage at Busch Stadium.   The first locker room they settled into didn't have air conditioning, so they had to switch with the supporting acts.   It was during the switch that a fan gave John Lennon a gift of a rubber chicken!  

The press conference originally been scheduled for that time had been canceled and the press group that traveled with them had gone out for dinner on the Hill and so the Beatles were left to talk to some people from the local newspapers, a DJ from Denver, the St. Louis fan club, George's sister Louise and her kids and Larry Kane who had came by to visit.
