THE STORY BEHIND THIS INCREDIBLE
PIECE OF BEATLES’ HISTORY…
BOB EUBANKS and the BEATLES
…Press Conference at the Cinnamon Cinder
August 23, 1964
In the early 60s, Bob Eubanks worked as a radio dee jay on KRLA, a local Los Angeles station. The first Beatles record he ever heard was “Please, Please Me.” Beatlemania was beginning to spread and the folks at KRLA could feel a change brewing in the music industry.
Bob admits he wasn’t the greatest at predicting hits, but he had a keen business sense. He knew that he wanted to do something with this group called The Beatles.
That ‘something’ eventually turned Bob into a concert promoter. With a partner and a second mortgage on his house, Bob Eubanks became one of only six people to promote and finance a Beatles concert during all three of their North American tours. The Hollywood Bowl for one night in 1964… the Hollywood Bowl for two nights in 1965… and Dodger Stadium for two nights in 1966.
…wait in line to buy a ticket to see the Beatles at the Hollywood Bowl in 1964. The line stretches for almost a mile.
