I didn't really think this deserved its own thread, so I chose this one to post in. Just read in a fictitious novel about a former nightclub in 1960s NYC that was named after George's nickname for his haircut, "Arthur." Just Googled this and found out it's true. (I bet most of you already know this, but thought I'd share anyway, just in case..). It was founded by Sybil Christopher (see obit clip below; she just passed in March).
I thought "Arthur" was one of the cute remarks made during the Beatles' first trip to America, but according to the obit it's in AHDN. (Hard to keep Beatle facts straight sometimes!)
Ms. Christopher, the first wife of the actor Richard Burton — both were Welsh-born — first became widely known in the United States in 1963 as the injured party in the first of Mr. Burton’s several divorces. He left her to marry Elizabeth Taylor after months of intense gossip about their affair, which at the time was considered a shocking scandal. Ms. Christopher (Ms. Burton at the time) and Mr. Burton had been living in Southern California.
Ms. Christopher apparently inherited most of the friends from their marriage, at least those in New York, where she moved soon after the divorce to settle with her two young daughters in an apartment on Central Park West. When she decided to open a discotheque in 1965 on the site of the old El Morocco, at 154 East 54th Street, she raised money from hundreds of people, most of them New York friends, including Roddy McDowall, Julie Andrews, Leonard Bernstein and Stephen Sondheim.
They called it Arthur, she said, in honor of a George Harrison quip in the Beatles’ 1964 film, “A Hard Day’s Night.” After someone asked him the name of his hairstyle, he replied, “Arthur.”
