The Beatles and Muhammad Ali

A cross post with The Glass Onion Beatles Journal:

Sad news today about the passing of the great Muhammad Ali.

The fighter, like the Beatles, was an icon of the 1960s and both entered the public consciousness at around the same time.

The group and Ali, then known as Cassius Clay, met and posed for a series of publicity pictures in February 1964 in Miami, as Clay trained for his triumphant fight against Sonny Liston and the Beatles appeared a live broadcast of "The Ed Sullivan Show."
