Dave Dee, Dozy, Beaky, Mick & Tich

Don’t ask me which is which.

Some of you might remember George’s introduction to “I Me Mine” on the Anthology discs where he name-checks this 60s band—which was, apparently, internal Beatles slang for each other.

Now, thanks to this post from Dangerous Minds, I think we perhaps know where The Beatles crossed paths with them…Vic Lownes‘ Playboy Club.

“But,” you say, “John, George, and Ringo were all married.” To which I respond, “They only went there for the articles.”

(PS—Just last week, I bought a copy of Playboy from December 1966—a business expense, I assure you—which has a hilarious article about Swinging London, and some photos taken concurrent with this newsreel.)

    I remember seeing a playboy magazine from either late 1963 or early 1964, and the playmate’s “likes and dislikes” was basically that she hated the “Beatles and their fans.”
    Which hit me like a slap on the face.

    I believe The Beatles first crossed paths with Dave Dee et. al. in Hamburg at the Star Club and the Top Ten Club.

    Back then they were known as Dave Dee and the Bostons.
