John Lennon, 1966
Incredible footage of The Beatles from a 1966 concert at the Circus Krone in Germany. These four youngsters look young, unblemished, and at the cross-over between experience and knowledge. But even in these short clips its John’s band and he is their leader – the one who had the drive to get The Beatles to the “toppermost of the poppermost.”
