When the Beatles leaped into the limo on their first visit to America,  Benson sat on John Lennon's lap, snapping away at the mad fans. He captured their immortal hotel room pillow fight, the moment when Paul McCartney and Lennon, nose to nose at the piano, composed "I Feel Fine," and scenes never before seen, except in Benson's book. Call 323-931-1168 for information, and take a peek at what Benson saw at the dawn of Beatlemania.
