1960 - The Beatles perform at the Indra Club, Grosse Freiheit, Hamburg, West Germany.
1961 - The Beatles perform a lunchtime show at the Cavern Club, Liverpool, and a night show at Village Hall, Knotty Ash, Liverpool. This will be their last performance for two weeks, with John Lennon and Paul McCartney about to take a trip to Paris.
1962 - The Beatles perform at the Oasis Club, Manchester.
1964 - The Beatles in the recording studio (Studio Two, EMI Studios, London). Recording songs for their fourth album, "Beatles For Sale".

1967 - The Beatles in the recording studio (Studio Two, EMI Studios, London). A particularly inventive mixing session, with John Lennon actively involved, preparing 17 mono mixes of "I Am the Walrus" before the master tape is finished, it being a compilation of two separate mixes. One of those mixes features the sound of a radio being tuned through numerous stations, coming to rest on a BBC production of William Shakespeare's "King Lear". After the completion of "I Am the Walrus", John (playing organ) and Paul (playing bass), complete "Your Mother Should Know", returning to the original recording from August 22-23 after rejecting the Sept. 16 re-make.

1996 - It is announced that Julian Lennon is the anonymous buyer who purchased Paul McCartney's handwritten recording notes for the song "Hey Jude" at auction for 25,000 pounds ($39,030). The song was written by McCartney for the young Julian when the boy's father, John Lennon, separated from his mother, Cynthia, in 1968.
