Beatles Stories – Ringo Starr and the Apple Scruffs


The Apple scruffs were a loosely-knit group of hardcore Beatles fans who were known for congregating outside the Apple Corps building and at the gates of Abbey Road Studios in London during the waning days of Beatlemania, in the hope of seeing or interacting with one of the band members. The name was first coined by George Harrison, who also recorded a song as a tribute to the scruffs for his 1970 triple album All Things Must Pass.
