Start of The Roy Orbison Tour. Ringo said: “It was terrible following him. He’d slay them and they’d scream for more. In Glasgow we were all backstage, listening to the tremendous applause he was getting. He was just standing there singing, not moving or anything. As it got near our turn we would hide behind the curtain whispering to each other, ‘Guess who’s next folks, it’s your favourite rave.”

It was during this tour that the Beatles started causing riots, with all the crazy ladies trying to get a piece. But it still went largely unreported in the press. is not affiliated with or approved by The Beatles, Apple, MPL, EMI or Capitol Records.
