News via The Examiner from the revised edition of Dean Johnson's The Beatles and Me:

The compilers of the book “The Beatles And Me” announced the discovery of a document Jan. 10 that reveals new information on Paul McCartney's early history and show him dabbling in drama in the years before Beatlemania, author Dean Johnson tells Beatles Examiner.


Also on that list are newsreader Peter Sissons, former Tory cabinet Minister and London Mayoral candidate Steven Norris, plus someone called Brian Wilson! Bit of a mixture? I was wondering if my Uncle was on that list as he was at 'The Inny' then.

Article on a new photography book by Bill Eppridge, Six Days That Changed the World. Eppridge, btw, is the photographer I met last year at Photo LA. I spotted the book yesterday at a record store, and it's beautiful ($30). [x-posted to the news thread]

This book has been mentioned upthread – Sylvia Nightingale was on the Magical Mystery Tour, and her book will come out in February. The Examiner did an interview with her.

I have to say, as non-insider Beatle memoirs go, I'm really looking forward to this one. I hope she's a decent writer.

An update on the book, which has been delayed:

I have been chewing things over and decided that I do not want any money out of my book sales, so decided the local Hospice will have 50% and the remainder will go to my two granddaughters to help with their careers. I was never doing this for the money anyway, simply to document a piece of Beatle History. If any profits can help my granddaughters with their future, then my job will be done…….

Don't think so. What exactly do you mean? That there's posts missing?

If you mean other new book releases then possibly but it would be incredibly difficult and time consuming to keep up with all the new Beatles books that come out.

I'll post the ones I come across but i don't go searching.

No, I felt like we had a discussion on Sex And The Beatles. Guess it was at the news thread.

It was a great talk, he showed about 150 photos and told the stories behind them. I posted a few pics at my Instagram account.
