“I remember going to Chicago,” said George. “There had been riots in the black ghettoes, and as we drove through, the cops, tense, trying to be smart, directing the traffic, no hands on the handlebars, were falling off their motorbikes. As we came through in a limousine, one would go ahead to the next junction, stop the traffic, we’d then cross and the other one would go ahead and so on. They were so ‘into the mania’. They drove those big Harleys, holding both hands up, with a loud whistle in their mouths, sun-shades on, braking and skidding off their bikes.” is not affiliated with or approved by The Beatles, Apple, MPL, EMI or Capitol Records.
