Trinkets from Shelby County’s Attic

Shelby County Register Tom Leatherwood’s office is a treasure trove of historic tidbits from just about every aspect of life in Memphis and Shelby County.

His office recently dug up the first page of an old Memphis City Council resolution urging the Beatles not to go forward with their 1966 concert at the Mid-South Coliseum. It was around the time the Beatles were tacking flak for anti-religious comments like John Lennon’s statement that the Beatles had become “more popular than Jesus.”

Also included below is the link to a letter from a fan urging the City Council not to cancel the Beatles’ concert. “I do not approve or like what John said, but you can like the Beatles without liking what they said or say,” the letter reads.

In other words, Mr. City Council-person, all you need is love.
