Harrison’s letter about Beatles’ hatred of jelly babies pelting up for grabsMay 15th, 2009 - 5:36 pm ICT by ANI
London, May 15 (ANI): A letter that late Beatles member George Harrison had written to a fan, detailing that the band hated being pelted with jelly babies on stage, is expected to sell for 800 pounds at auction next month.
After Harrison revealed that he loved eating the sweets, the band was often bombarded with them.
However, in the letter Harrison wrote in 1963 to Lynn Smith, then a 15-year-old schoolgirl, he revealed how the Fab Four hated them.
“We don’t like jelly babies, so think how we feel standing on stage trying to dodge the stuff. Besides it is dangerous,” the Mirror quoted him as having written.
“I was ecstatic when he wrote back,” Smith, from Salisbury, Wilts, added. (ANI)
