Geldof's Grim Beatles Memory
Bob Geldof feels squeamish every time he remembers THE Beatles - because he witnessed screaming girls soiling themselves in excitement at seeing the Fab Four.
The former Boomtown Rats singer saw the legendary band in concert during the height of Beatlemania in the mid-1960s.
And he is adamant apocryphal tales of teenage girls wetting themselves over John Lennon and Paul MCCartney are true - he saw rivers of urine running down the aisles of the venue.
Geldof tells Q magazine, "The Beatles was a case of watching females in excelsis. It's the old cliche, but you couldn't hear them for all the screaming. I remember looking down at the cinema floor and seeing these rivulets of p**s in the aisles. The girls were literally p**sing themselves with excitement. So what I associate most with The Beatles is the smell of girls' urine."
