To celebrate the 50th anniversary of The Beatles landing in America, Morrison Hotel Gallery has a special exhibit of Beatles photos on display curated by Julian Lennon.  25 photos are on display in New York and a further 25 are being shown in Los Angeles.

Many of these photos have never been seen before and as you can see in the above photo of Paul McCartney, it is absolutely stunning.

Pattie Boyd, who took the above photo of the Beatles circa “The White Album” was in attendance at the opening night reception.  More on Pattie in a moment.

The Morrison Hotel Gallery is located in its new space at 116 Prince Street, Second Floor in Manhattan.

As a bonus photo, the Ed Sullivan Theater, where the David Letterman Show now tapes, commemorated the Beatles 50th anniversary by posting this flashback sign above the theater, which I froze my little buns off to photograph for you, my dear readers 🙂

Now back to Pattie Boyd.  Pattie was married to George Harrison and was with George on the night that George and John Lennon took LSD for the first time, which is arguably one of the most important events in music history as the night totally changed the Beatles sound into something much more experimental which of course has influenced every band to come out since.  She is the inspiration behind tracks such as “Something” and “For You Blue” and as she was later married to Eric Clapton, she is also the inspiration for “Layla.”  WOW!  She attended the opening night reception and was extremely nice.  See what the gorgeous (and still gorgeous) Pattie Boyd looks like after the jump.
