All four Beatles attended the UK premiere of ‘Yellow Submarine’ at the London Pavilion, in Piccadilly Circus. Other guests included Mick Jagger, Donovan, Sandie Shaw, Twiggy and Tony Blackburn. John Coates remembered them coming in for the screening: “When we finally got all The Beatles along to a screening of the completed version, they all seemed very pleased until they got outside. Paul was the first one to come up to me, and he said, ‘Listen, I think you did a great job on the other three, but my voice sounds awful. Can’t you do anything about it?’ Then, one by one, they all came up and said the same thing. ‘They sound great, but I’m all wrong!’ So, I guess we must have got it right!”
