George Harrison was miserable from frame one to frame 500,” says Ethan Russell. “He was so over it. I don’t think he did anything but scowl for three hours.”
The photographer is recalling the day he unknowingly took the last ever shot of the Beatles together. It was 22 August 1969, and they were all at John Lennon’s countryside estate near Ascot.
“Paul was trying to hold it together,” he adds. “He had his arms crossed like, ‘Come on, lads!’
But the concept of the Beatles just didn’t sync with who they were any more.
I could have asked them to smile, but it would have been totally fake and I’m glad I didn’t.
This marriage had come to an end – and boy does it show.”
