David Magnus’ Beatles Photography at Morrison Gallery

I am at the David Magnus show at the Morrison Hotel Gallery. He shot the Beatles in the early days before they became Psychedelic. I love this gallery. It appears small at first, but blooms throughout the entire Sunset Marquee hotel. David is a jolly chap–he said he had not been in the states since the 1960s. Back then he rented a blue Mustang, and awww, he loves his American memories.

The opening was well attended. Fans of the Beatles still cram in for a glance at the Fabulous Four. David Magnus’ photographs are collected in a book called “All You Need is Love,” by Steve Turner. A copy of this treasure costs $279.00. Life-long Beatle fans will say its a must have. After meeting David and seeing his work, I’d say it would be a valuable asset to your moptop collection.
