Recording session at Chappell Recording Studios (19:00) during which they recorded Your Mother Should Know.

This was the last session that Brian ever attended (because he died four days later). They were working on the song ‘Your Mother Should Know’. By now, Brian’s daily routine had become truly bizarre – often not arriving into the office until well-after tea-time. He was getting more and more depressed with every passing week, and was relying on sleeping pills to get him through the night. Pete Shotton remembered John saying: “Brian’s in a terrible state. The guy’s head is a total mess, and we’re all really worried about him. But we just don’t know what the fuck we can do about it.” is not affiliated with or approved by The Beatles, Apple, MPL, EMI or Capitol Records.
