It was also the release date of the Beatles' second album, "With The Beatles".
But where were the Beatles? They were playing in Stockton.
Tony Bramwell remembers the day: "50 years ago on November 22nd I was in Stockton-On-Tees doing two shows on The Beatles huge British Beatlemania Tour. Between shows we were informed that President J.F.Kennedy had been assassinated in Dallas, Texas. The mood for the second concert was definitely subdued, although of course the audience had not heard the dreadful news!"
Gazettelive.co.uk takes us back to that day.

What's hard to fathom is that it was only 17 years between the murders of the two namesakes, president Kennedy and "our own" John.
