The great violinist Erich Gruenberg died earlier this month at the age of 95. Erich played on A day in the life, and on She's leaving home. An obituary says that he wore a 'prop gorilla paw' on his bow hand, at the Beatles' request ! If anyone has any further info on this story, I would be interested. Erich had a long and distinguished career based in Britain after escaping the Nazi menace in his native Austria, finally retiring last year.
