Leslie Woodhead, the award-winning film-maker who shot the historic first footage of The Beatles in the Cavern Club (sure you’ve seen the clip!), has a new book out on April 25: How The Beatles Rocked The Kremlin. 

There’s a Facebook page for it: http://on.fb.me/ZPqT84. You can ‘Like’ it to get Beatles trivia, enter a draw for free a signed copy, and find a link to a free 30-page extract. Let me know what you think of it!

Mod addition: For context, after the thread title was changed later AppleScruffJunior said:

 

For posterity the original title of this thread was:

 

‘New Book by the Man Who First Shot The Beatles’

 

And here I was thinking only John was shot!

 

(Yes I dug up an 8 year old thread to say this stupid joke…deal with it >.>)

Maybe a thread title change is required as I was wondering why the person who shot the Beatles was writing a book about it.

I concur. I at first thought the guy who shot John actually wrote a book, before I remembered he died too. 

Suggestion: “New Book by the Man Who First Recorded the Beatles on Video”

He’s still very much alive, last I checked?

If no one objects I shall change it to this

Can’t we call it by the name of the book, ‘How The Beatles Rocked The Kremlin’ “, so people know what the thread is about when clicking on it?

Wonder if @DominicW is Dominic Woodhead (son or grandson)?

Should be noted that Leslie Woodhead did a documentary of the same title, How The Beatles Rocked the Kremlin, about a decade ago (I think?).

Book would seem to be based on that. Looking forward to it.

  Me and my historical inaccuracies. I’m getting senile. Thanks for the revisions, much appreciated

The initial post is from 2013, the book is available to buy online and has been for 8 years. ASJ has revived it to celebrate it’s 97th month anniversary. 

I’ve changed the thread title to the name of the book as it makes the most sense.

Didn’t someone threaten to shoot Ringo for being a Jew missing the one main point being Ringo isn’t a Jew? And I’m sure George was shot at as a kid when stealing apples or cars, he says it in some interview (‘RSG’ or the bbc maybe). Or was that John?

The book is currently for sale on Amazon UK for £4 for anyone who is interested in it – good bargain.
