Apple Scruffs

A great Beatles fact is that Beatles fans who assembled outside Abbey Road or Saville Row during the latter days of the Beatles career as a group were known as "apple scruffs." Two "scruffs," Lizzie Bravo and Gayleen Pease, actually were used for a version of "Across the Universe" that Lennon detested. "She Came in Through the Bathroom Window" is allegedly about a few apple scruffs who climbed into an upstairs window at McCartney's house looking to "score" pair of his pants. After the Beatles broke up, Harrison wrote a song for All Things Must Pass called "Apple Scruffs."
