The Beatles rooftop concert: ‘People loved it but there were complaints’ – Sir Ringo Starr

Sir Ringo added: “People loved it but there were complaints from the bank next door so the police came and pulled the plugs out of our amps – and George just put his back in.

“And I was playing away and thinking, ‘Just come and drag me off the drums!’” ⁠

Right at the end as the police shut then down, John Lennon said: “I’d like to say thank-you on behalf of the group and ourselves and I hope we’ve passed the audition.”

The moment can be heard at the end of The Beatles’ final track Get Back on their last studio album Let It Be.
