On This Day – Hell Hath No Fury.

The Fab Four at their most Fab.......

The Fab Four at their most Fab.......

On this day in 1966, The Philippine police pulled their security of the the Fab Four (those impish mop tops so beloved of my mother….) Their crime? They forgot to go and see Imelda Marcos’ collection of shoes. It would seem that when they arrives in the Philippines they were sent an invitation to a party being given by Imelda (wife of the dictator/president). Whether they never received it or ignored it is unknown. In any event they did not go and so earned the ire of the government. Without the police protection the irrepressible leaders of pop culture beat a hasty retreat in the face of press anger, bomb threats and riots.

For the rest of us who do not have £160 to spend on the Fabs I think that Revolver is their best album…
