1960 - The Beatles perform at the Casbah Coffee Club, West Derby, Liverpool. This appearance marks the 4th and last time that temporary bassist Chas Newby plays with The Beatles.
1962 - The Beatles perform at the Star-Club, Hamburg, West Germany. This is the final night of their fifth, and final, visit to Hamburg. The Beatles' performance is recorded by Ted 'Kingsize' Taylor (of The Dominoes). The recording has since become known as "The Star-Club Tapes", and the tracks, first released in 1977, have been extensively re-issued. The ex-Beatles opposed the release of the recordings, due primarily to their very poor sound quality. The recordings do, nonetheless, provide a fascinating glimpse, however slight, of the early Beatles. The original tapes were auctioned in August 1992. Their apprenticeship in Hamburg completed, The Beatles were ready to move into national, and then international, fame.
1963 - The Beatles perform at the Astoria Cinema, Finsbury Park, London. Appearing in one performance of "The Beatles' Christmas Show".
1964 - The Beatles put on two performances of "Another Beatles Christmas Show" at the Hammersmith Odeon in London.
1970 - Paul McCartney institutes court proceedings in the London High Court to end The Beatles partnership. His suit requests that a receiver for Apple be appointed until the case is settled, charging Allen Klein with mismanagement of Apple funds. The other three Beatles oppose Paul's action.
1979 - John and Yoko dissolve most of their companies, including Bag Productions Ltd. and Joko Films Ltd.
