Eric Clapton and his new wife, the former Mrs. George Harrison, Pattie Boyd had a wedding reception at their English estate on May 19, 1979. It turned out to be the closest thing to a live Beatles reunion when Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr played together. There are different stories why John Lennon was not there including he was living in the US at the time and also one that says he never got his invitation.
Clapton had set up an outdoor stage for a mammoth jam session which featured the three ex-Beatles, a reformed Cream, the Rolling Stones’ Mick Jagger and Bill Wyman, Elton John, David Bowie, and many more.
There are very few pictures of the reception. Here is one that shows Paul, George, Ringo and Lonnie Donegan.
If we had a ‘way back machine’….. we’d set it for 39 years ago today. We’d probably need an invitation too…..
Ok, any of you there for this?
