The Beatles’ “Revolver” was released on this day, Aug. 5, way back in 1966. To celebrate the anniversary of this revolutionarily “weird” album, here are eleven super weird things about The Beatles.
1. The Beatles concerts were said to smell heavily of urine due to overexcited girls.
Multiple people have claimed Beatles shows were known for their urine. Notably, John B. Lynn, son of the owner of a venue The Beatles played, told The Washington Post that the concert hall smelled like the pee of over-excited girls after the show. Bob Geldof told Q Magazine in 2010:
The Beatles was a case of watching females in excelsis. It’s the old cliché, but you couldn’t hear them for all the screaming. I remember looking down at the cinema floor and seeing these rivulets of piss in the aisles. The girls were literally pissing themselves with excitement. So what I associate most with The Beatles is the smell of girls’ urine.
