Beatles barber turns shop into tribute to Fab Four
Beatles fan Gerardo Weiss ran a typical Buenos Aires barber shop until he had a dream that the Fab Four dropped in for a haircut.
Seven years later, Weiss has made Beatles-inspired cuts his specialty."The dream got etched on my memory," he said at the modest salon, the walls plastered with photos of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr."I decided to get rid of the pictures these places usually have and just put up photos of The Beatles ... so people could see them and ask for their haircuts," he said. One picture shows Lennon cutting someone's hair, another is of Harrison with curly locks down to his shoulders. It is the stuff of inspiration for Weiss.http://uk.reuters.com/article/2011/07/29/us-argentina-beatles-idUKTRE76S4FD20110729
