FOR BEATLES FANATICS During the November 4, 1963 Royal Command Performance, in the presence of the Queen Mother and Princess Margaret, John dared to utter his famous line, “For our last number I’d like to ask your help. The people in the cheaper seats clap their hands, and the rest of you if you’d just rattle your jewelry.

Only George Harrison performed on his acoustic guitar, apparently the Gibson J-160 E.

He was the only musician who ever replaced one of the Beatles in the studio!
