“A couple of nights later, I was in their room again and Brian Epstein comes in to tell them they had just gone to N°1 in America with I Wanna Hold Your Hand and they had been booked to go on the Ed Sullivan show in New York in a few days.
“They were all so happy, and I said, ‘How about a pillow fight?’ They all said, ‘Yes’, but then John said, ‘No’ because they didn’t want to look ridiculous, and they all agreed.
“But then John slips away and, while Paul is drinking a brandy, John comes up with a pillow and smacks him in the back of the head with it, and from then on it went from room to room and all the rooms were messed up. The worst was George’s”. Harry Benson
this is my favorite story about them.
