The Beatles were met with open arms today in 1964

February 18, 2018

The Beatles attended the training site

of heavy weight boxing champion Sonny Liston

for a publicity photo-op on February 18th of 1964

Sonny Liston refused to pose with "those sissies"

The group was then driven to Cassius Clay's gym

where they were welcomed with open arms

In an odd twist

it would be Sonny Liston not Muhammad Ali

who would later be included among celebrities

on the cover of Sgt. Pepper"s Lonely Hearts Club Band
