The Beatles Keep Their Leather Jacket Image. What Happens Next?
« on: December 01, 2016, 05:31:34 AM »

The Beatles tell Brian Epstein to f*** off, they're not changing their image. They ARE the savage young Beatles. Eppy agrees and does everything else the same. George Martin decides to take a chance. They are still lovable mop tops but in leather.
They write the same early songs. Does it change anything?  Is their path altered in any way?

I  think their clothes and hair made them different,  so no it wouldn't have had the same effect especially on young girls,they were clean and loveable,  the first boy band.
But the boys liked them as well, I bugged my mum rotten  for a Beatles jacket with round collar in 1963,  they had so much their own style, it mattered a lot imo.

It was a fellow named Dougie Millings who designed their collarless suits.  He had a cameo in A Hard Day's Night...








I reckon The Beatles didn't care much for the suits he designed...

Wow, Barry, you're doing a great job supporting your opinion! There's even some pictures there that I've never seen, which is always nice. As for the picture you posted of those guys in the classroom, well, most of them look incredibly bored, and like they could even turn rebellious and break someone's records.  ;)

The Shadows were savage in 1960...

I just heard Peter Noone say on his radio show that Herman's Hermits were the first boy band. Since George Harrison made a similar proclamation about The Beatles it must be a somewhat coveted title. :)

Aw, so the plot thickens. The world may never know for sure. But that was very cute. I didn't realize that Frankie Lymon wrote that song in addition to singing it. What a talented young man.
