Bobby Talks about the Beatles tour with
Q - How did you get the tour with The Beatles? Were you approached by Brian Epstein?
A - No. Sid Bernstein. That's who did that. Sid did that for me.
Q - Where did you go with The Beatles?
A - The U.S. tour. The last tour that they made. We opened up in Chicago and I think we ended in 'Frisco.
Q - How were you received by The Beatles audience? Were they screaming for The Beatles?
A - Oh, no. They listened to me.
Q - That's impressive.
A - Well, that was one of the highlights of my entire career, to have 50,000 people there and actually being heard. I loved the audience. They loved me very much and I'm very happy over that. That was one of the greatest things that I felt during my whole career.
Q - Had you ever performed before 50,000 people before?
A - Not 50,000, but with Roy Acuff And The Smokey Mountain Boys, there were some large crowds of people.
Q - How did touring with The Beatles help your career?
A - Well, it gave me a little encouragement and motivation on things that I thought I needed to do to continue correctly, even though I wasn't as strong as I wanted to become in certain areas. But once again, no one would listen to me. They wanted me to do what John Doe was doing.
Q - You can never be like the next guy.
A - That's true. That's an old Biblical statement there. Did so and so die for you? You must be yourself.
Q - What did you follow up "Sunny" with?
A - "A Satisfied Mind".
Q - After The Beatles tour, you went on tour with who?
A - Gary Lewis And The Playboys. And I did something with Gary four or five years ago. I'm a good friend of Gary's. He's always been a hard worker. I did something with Chuck Jackson. The Temptations.
