Lennon and McCartney give interviews to US press
John Lennon and Paul McCartney undertook an unusual business meeting: it took place aboard a Chinese junk, sailing around the Statue of Liberty. The meeting was with Ron Kass, the record company executive who had been recently appointed the US head of Apple.
John Lennon, Ringo Starr, Derek Taylor, “Magic” Alex Mardas, and The Beatles’ old school friend, Ivan Vaughan, meet at Apple to plan the founding of an idealistic school for the children of The Beatles and their staff.
It is reported that The Beatles have been warned that they will have to remove the psychedelic paintings on the Apple Boutique's wall. Public outcry about the painting from nearby businesses was quite intense.
