Manila, the Republic of the Philippines, July 3rd, 1966. The second stop of the Far East leg of the Beatles’ 1966 tour starts out weird and ominous, and gets worse from there. By the time the tour sputters to a halt - late August in San Francisco - the boys are almighty sick of it. An offhand remark by John Lennon to a British journalist gets taken out of context and blown out of proportion. The ensuing controversy in America only confirms something The Beatles have been thinking for a...
