George remembered arriving into Houston in his book, ‘I Me Mine’. “Our advance man advised the police on the problems they might meet,” he said. “And their chief said, ‘That was Dallas – we’re not like that down here. Mind your own business.’ So he only put five cops on duty to wait for our arrival at the airport. As the wheels touched the runway, our pilot had to switch the engines off and coast, because there were ‘thousands’ of people all running down the runway. The pilot just parked up and within minutes, with us all inside, the crowds had climbed on the wings and they were knocking on the outside of the windows, and then falling off the wings!” is not affiliated with or approved by The Beatles, Apple, MPL, EMI or Capitol Records.
