David Bailey documentary: Four Beats to the Bar, and No Cheating

MIKE GERBER • In the process of relinking and refurbishing this site, I was reminded of a David Bailey documentary that I watched late last year. I think you might enjoy it — it’s called “Four Beats to the Bar, and No Cheating.” Well worth your time.

Will I ever get enough of the BBC? Probably not. And I know I won’t get enough of Bailey’s work. We’ve covered it before on Dullblog, and if you haven’t seen his photos of John and Paul or Brian Epstein, you’re in for a treat.

    Does anyone know the story behind the Bailey L/M shoot?

    I’ve read in the Beatle grapevine that it was intended for John only but that he brought Paul along for moral support. Also, I’ve heard that Bailey said he wanted to catch the inherent tension (sexual?) between them. I would love to know the true story.
