After reading a post by @Necko, I realized we don't have an appreciation thread about Neil. Until now.

What an incredibly loyal servant to the Beatles. It's just a shame we never really got to access all those great Beatle anecdotes that he must have had stored away in his head. A Neil Aspinall memoirs book would have been incredible.

To be honest, I think some people probably breathe easy that Aspinall never did his memoir. He certainly was the gatekeeper.

Right. We all know the "whats" (what they were and what they did). He knew the "hows" and the "whos". Many a secret died with him.

I think even a cleaned up version would have been great.
