The Beatles at EMI on 6th June 1962 – the day it all changed!

When The Beatles went down to EMI Studios on 6th June 1962, were they under contract or was it an audition?

This was the day that would change the story of the Beatles forever. It would lead to the Beatles obtaining their recording contract from Parlophone and working with George Martin.

It also led to the end of the road for Pete Best in the Beatles.

Examine the evidence with me now in this video.


The Beatles EMI Audition

David and Rod Davis in Germany

On 20th May I flew out to Germany with Rod Davis from the Quarrymen.

Rod, like many people, didn’t realise that I play guitar and sing a bit too! So he suggested that ge would do a talk with songs, I would do my talk, and then we would sing some songs together. What an honour that was for me and we had so much fun too!!

Have a look at the video I’ve just uploaded to our YouTube channel and I hope you forgive the camera work from those watching and my singing too!
