February 20th

1962:  Brian writes to Bert Kaempfert, asking him to release The Beatles from their contract. 
“Brian and George Martin must have hit it off quite well, for Brian felt sufficiently boosted to send a letter on February 20 to Bert Kaempfert, the Hamburg producer, asking that The Beatles be released from their commitment to record again with Tony Sheridan1, and it would seem unlikely that a chance with Polydor Records should be dismissed so easily if Brian's faith in George Martin was not strong. Nevertheless, Martin later wrote that he most certainly would not have offered The Beatles a recording contract before an audition2. Therefore, it seems that Brian was continuing his boldness, believing firmly that, once Martin heard the lads live, a contract was forthcoming.” http://comprehensivebeatles.blogspot.com/2010/10/1962-june-6.html

1964: The Beatles attended an all night party at singer Alma Cogan’s Kensington flat the evening after they arrived back in London from America during which neighbors threatened to call for police due to the noise. Jane Asher and Paul McCartney were photographed by the press leaving the party about 4:00 a.m. (Feb. 24). Earlier that day, without even a day off to get over jet-lag, the Beatles had taped an appearance for Mike & Bernie Winters’ variety show Big Night Out before a live audience at ABC TV’s Teddington Studio Centre.

1969: Nemperor Holdings was sold to Triumph Investment Trust. Triumph will now collect Brian Epstein's 25 percent of The Beatles' performance royalties. The Beatles, claiming that they are no longer represented by NEMS, instructed EMI to pay all royalties directly to Apple Corps, not to Triumph. Triumph filed suit, freezing 1.3 million pounds in royalties due to be paid by EMI to The Beatles. The money cannot be disbursed until the lawsuit is resolved. http://history.absoluteelsewhere.net/February/february24.html
