Beatlefan #213!

 I'm proud to have two book reviews in the new issue of Beatlefan out now.

More good stuff:
Sporting a great front cover shot of Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr taken by Rob Shanahan and a back-cover Macca shot by Bob Gannon, Beatlefan #213 features Ken Sharp's new interview with The Beatles' drummer in which he talks about such wide-ranging topics as his days with Rory Storm and the Hurricanes, his evolution as a songwriter, his drumming on "Rain," and recording and writing with members of the All Starr Band. Plus, we hear from Todd Rundgren about writing the title track for "Postcards From Paradise" with Ringo. Also in this issue is Bill King's appraisal of Ringo's new album, Rick Glover's review of the All Starrs in Birmingham, Ala., and a complete wrap-up on Ringo's touring plans and recent media blitz. 

This issue also features Tom Frangione's interview with Gary Wright about his work with George Harrison and Ringo, a full report on Macca's Valentine's Day concert and tour news, Howie Edelson tracing McCartney's creative wanderings in the 1980s, a detailed report on the new Beatles BBC bootleg collection, Bruce Spizer's look back 50 years at the recording and release of "Ticket to Ride," the tale of how a German fan got a box load of autographed items mailed to him by John Lennon in the mid-1970s, and a younger fan's viewpoint on Macca working with Kanye West. Plus, four pages of reviews and all the latest news!
