Photographer, Reporter Remember The Beatles' First Arrival to the U.S.

Photographer Harry Benson was one of the Beatles' first photographers. He captured many iconic images that would later be featured on posters and magazine covers all over the world. Arguably his most famous photo is of the fab foursome having an impromptu pillow fight. He shares the story behind that image and some lesser-known details about how the Beatles felt coming to America for the first time.

New Day also spoke with Larry Kane, one of the first American reporters to follow The Beatles on their U.S. tour. He shared a historical decision that the band made on segregation while touring.
