Not really a Beatles fan, she was only there as a chaperone to her younger sister Marjorie, as Barbara preferred the music of Aretha Franklin, Ray Charles, and Bob Dylan.
Coincidentally, another future Beatle wife, Linda Eastman, was also at the Shea Stadium concert.
They married just over a year later on April 27, 1981, shortly after the film’s release.
Ringo and Barbara were dating and spending a holiday together in December 1980, when the news broke about the murder of John Lennon.
But the reason it actually garnered quite a bit of attention was that this isn’t the first time that it’s been speculated Paul Mc Cartney died back in 1966.
