Beatles and Boxing

 

 

– and –
     

The Beatles were huge boxing fans. So much so that they added former heavyweight champion Sonny Liston to their iconic Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band album cover at a prominent place right alongside the Beatles on the left. (CLICK PHOTO TO VIEW VIDEO)

For many fans, it was the beginning of the end – less than two years later, the band would sign the document that effectively dissolved The Beatles forever – but for a brief moment, the band’s appearance on The David Frost Show gave a glimmer of hope that maybe all really wasn’t lost, after all. Filmed at Twickenham Film Studios, “Hey Jude” was paired with “Revolution” as a promotional film for the band, and required at least three takes over the course of a day to capture the final, most commonly seen version that debuted on September 8, 1968.)
