Mal Evans notebook containing Beatles lyrics and doodles goes on display in Liverpool

A notebook kept by Beatles assistant Mal Evans containing draft lyrics to "Hey Jude" and other songs is going display at the Beatles Story museum in Liverpool, the BBC reports.

The book, compiled between 1967-1968, features Sir Paul McCartney's draft of the famous song alongside poetry and doodles squiggled by the music legend.

Stephen Maycock, a specialist in Beatles memorabilia, said the book provided "a fascinating insight into the Beatles' creative process."

It will be exhibited at The Beatles Story in Liverpool from 22 February.

The notebook also contains a part-lyric for Sgt Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band, recording notes by George Harrison for All You Need Is Love as well as verses for other songs including For The Benefit of Mr Kite, Good Morning Good Morning and All Together Now.

It belonged to tour manager Mal Evans, who was a part-time bouncer at Liverpool's Cavern Club when he was enlisted as a bodyguard and roadie for the band.
