On this day: Elvis Met The Beatles

On August 27, 1965, Elvis Presley met The Beatles at his L.A. mansion. The English quartet were on a break from their US tour, and manager Brian Epstein negotiated with Col Tom Parker for them to meet The King. After the ice was broken a short jam session broke out, which would likely be one of the world's most famous recordings, if only it had been committed to tape.
