When The Beatles met Elvis
A new exhibition documents the meeting
A new exhibition at the Beatles Story Museum in Liverpool tells the story of the one occasion when the Beatles met their once hero Elvis. The exhibiton charts Elvis' influence on The Beatles, from their early days as The Quarrymen, through to their meeting in 1965.
It goes on to document their subsequent careers through to Elvis' campaign to have John Lennon removed from the country for his anti war protests. The exhibition features lots of original artefacts which have never been on display before. http://www.bbc.co.uk/6music/news/20111223_elvis.shtml
