Hard days and nights with the Beatles
As a young man living in London, Richard Lush had a habit of staying out all night.
When his mother found her exhausted son stumbling in the front door around breakfast time, she would click her tongue and say: “Oh, those Beatles — God, they’ve kept you up again!”
The year was 1968, and the world’s most popular band was recording its ninth album.
Although the double LP was self-titled, the collection of 30 songs would come to be known as The White Album, thanks to its stark cover design.
