It's covered in The Beatles Off the Record: The Dream Is Over by Keith Badman with quotes from Paul and Denny. That book's based on interviews and newspaper clippings and seem quite reliable from what I've seen.

Yes, magazines, media, books. etc. Name or direct me to one which I can read for myself that has direct quotes from one of the 200 people in attendance. I know how prone you are to arguing about unsubstantiated opinion. In this instance can you just provide a real piece of information? I have seen and read all the quasi second hand acccounts/rumors that you have provided thus far.

2 minutes google will get you on the road and the books I have where it's in are not e-books, they are books of paper, sorry, and as said within Beatles land it's a known event, nothing new about it. If you want to call that quasi 2nd hand and rumors, fine.

You know what I enjoy? Collecting albums. I have become quite authoritative on identifying albums and their value. When someone inquires about an album, I am thrilled to share my knowledge. I don't argue w people for being uninformed. So far that's all you've done. Unless you have actual information that you can share, you are just contaminating this thread.

Don't waste my time. You know exactly what I'm talking about, in this topic and in that other topic where we had to delete several of your posts that were completely over the top.

Read the rules of the forum. Get it or don't post, it's very simple.

I'm afraid I don't. I simply made the mistake of posing a legitimate question on a board comprised of alleged experts, when I evidently should have just Googled. But I won't waste any more of your time.

Hmmm. You don't understand? Let me try to explain then. How about telling another member to fuck off? How about calling somebody a complete idiot? Or a douchebag?

Are those just simple mistakes too?

This post brought a smile to my face.

The wavy hair was a Harrison trait.

Speaking of height, we all know George was a shade under 6' tall. Miss O'Dell, in her eponymous book said that Harold Sr. was not a very tall man and that George and Harold Jr. were taller. Peter was a chip off the Harold Sr. block and he was not as tall as the other Harrison boys.

Interesting, when you consider Peter was 12 lbs at birth and George clocked in at 10 lbs.

So five years after this post, I meet Denny at his show last night and pose the question myself to him. The story is even more fascinating than the myth.

It was 29 years ago today (May 19th, 1979) that a select group of party-goers witnessed the closest thing to a live Beatles reunion when Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr reunited to jam at Eric Clapton's wedding reception at his English estate.
