Luxury Parisian hotel traces link to the Beatles in photo exhibit

Tuesday, May 27, 2014

Beatles fans who are Paris-bound this summer may want to add the Four Seasons Hotel Georges V to their itinerary, as the luxury landmark -- where the band wrote one of their most iconic songs -- will pay tribute to the music legends in a photo exhibit.

The photos, taken by Harry Benson, capture intimate moments of the quartet at the hotel, including an impromptu jam session at the piano between John Lennon and Paul McCartney, which led to the writing of their hit song “I Feel Fine,” Benson, who was the tour photographer and was in the suite at the time, immortalized the moment on camera. The George V also bore witness to another moment of Beatles euphoria, as it was while gathered in one of their suites that the band learned that their song “I Want to Hold Your Hand” had topped the charts in the US and that they were invited to appear on “The Ed Sullivan Show.” After learning that the band had broken out into a pillow fight a few nights earlier, Benson asked them to recreate the playful event.
