When The Beatles first came to America in 1965, Elvis was the only person they wanted to meet. On August 27, they got their wish. According to John Lennon, they spent an entirely enjoyable evening at the Presley home in Bel Air, California, talking, singing and laughing with each other. Afterwards, Lennon said they enjoyed his company very much. Ironically, Elvis thought the Beatles were a bad influence on America's youth.
