Ernesto Juan Castellanos was born in Cuba in 1963. Four years before that, in 1959, was the Cuban revolution. One year after that, in 1964, was the Beatles first world tour. Also in 1964 the communist government banned the Beatles in Cuba. Anyone caught with Beatles records, listening to the Beatles on the radio could go to jail.
Despite all this, despite the threat of jail, despite living his whole life under a communist government, Ernesto grew up to be a huge Beatles fan. And in 1996 he created an event that would change the status of the Beatles in Cuba forever, and lead the repressive government to put up a statue of John Lennon in the middle of Havana.
