Beatles Pillow Fight, Hotel George V, Paris, 1964 - At about 3:00am after a performance, the Beatles manager, Brian Epstein, came to tell them "I Want to Hold Your Hand" was number one on the US charts, which meant that they would be going to America to perform on the Ed Sullivan Show. They were elated with the news. I had seen them have pillow fights before and when I suggested it, they all said it was a silly idea. Then John sneaked up and hit Paul in the head and the fun began.
