"Penny Lane never heard in Cuba"

The man who banned the Beatles from Cuba's communist-run island's radio and television stations has paid a visit to George and John, state television said on Tuesday.

Jorge "Papito" Serguera, who at the time was president of the Cuban Institute of Radio and Television, pulled Beatles music from the airwaves in the 1970s even though he later admitted he enjoyed listening to the Rolling Stones in private.

Serguera, who was 76 when he caught sight of John Lennon motioning for him to come over to him for some saved up spleen, said in a 2001 interview he was following orders from high government officials who viewed the British band's music as a threat to the revolution.

"We sang 'Revolution'", replied John.

"I was only following orders", stated Seguera.

"Like we've never heard that excuse before", quipped George.

"Mick....Mick Jagger will defend me when he gets here!" yelled Seguera.

"Mick will tell you one thing", stated John, who immediately began singing "Hey! You! Get off of my cloud!"
