EDITORS COMMENTS
The Beatles proudly display their MBE medals, a symbol of their remarkable achievements and recognition by the British Empire. This iconic photograph captures the Fab Four at the height of their fame, just moments after receiving their prestigious honors at Buckingham Palace on October 26th, 1965. As members of the Order of the British Empire, John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr stand united in this news press conference held at the Saville Theatre. Owned by their manager Brian Epstein, it served as a fitting backdrop for this historic occasion. Little did anyone know that four years later on November 29th, 1969, John Lennon would return his MBE in protest against various political issues. His act was fueled by Britain's involvement in Biafra conflict and support for America's role in Vietnam War. In jest or not, he also expressed disappointment over his single 'Cold Turkey' slipping down the charts. In this image from Tony Eyles' lens capturing an era defined by music revolution and cultural transformation; George Harrison stands tall on top left while John Lennon gazes confidently from top right. On bottom left is Paul McCartney with his signature charm while Ringo Starr completes the quartet as drummer extraordinaire on bottom right. This print serves as a timeless reminder of The Beatles' indelible mark on music history during one unforgettable moment in time.
