“You gotta stick it out though. That’s all there really is at the end of the line in this business. B.B. King and Chuck Berry are still working. Little Richard is as good now as he was then.”
~Bob Dylan to Edna Gundersen, August, 1990

Al Aronowitz drives Dylan from Woodsrock to New York to meet the Beatles. Dylan and Aronowitz end up introducing the Beatles to the delights of cannabis at the Delmonico Hotel in New York.
~Clinton Heylin (Bob Dylan: A Life in Stolen Moments Day by Day 1941-1995)

On 28 August 1964 Bob Dylan introduced The Beatles to cannabis.

The two parties were introduced by a mutual friend, the writer Al Aronowitz, at New York’s Delmonico Hotel. Upon arriving at The Beatles’ suite Dylan asked for cheap wine; Mal Evans was sent to get some, and during the wait Dylan suggested they have a smoke.

I don’t remember much what we talked about. We were smoking dope, drinking wine and generally being rock’n’rollers and having a laugh, you know, and surrealism. It was party time.
~John Lennon (Anthology)
