New Beatlefan Mag Out Now

The new issue of Beatlefan is out and includes my take on how the upcoming Beatles biodocs from director Sam Mendes could be structured to tell the band's story over the course of the planned four films.

Order/subscribe here.


In Beatlefan #268, Kathy Urbanic looks at how 1964 was the best year for U.S. fans of The Beatles, while Reed Pitkunigis writes about a unique collectible that resulted from the Fabs’ tour Down Under. 

Also, veteran British journalist Ivor Davis, who traveled with the band’s first North American tour, tells how The Beatles eventually saved his life. 

Elsewhere in the new issue, we have a review of Ringo Starr and his All Starr Band in Vegas, Dennis Adkins offers a fan’s report on one last time seeing Cirque du Soleil’s “The Beatles LOVE,” Bruce Spizer discusses the recent debut of the restored “Let It Be,” John Firehammer takes a speculative look at how the upcoming four-film Beatles biopic series could be handled, Bill King continues his look back at the first year’s issues of Beatlefan 45 years ago, Rip Rense makes the case for Peter Jackson “demixing” more tracks, Wally Podrazik makes an interesting comparison between the Fabs and Taylor Swift, and David Persails winds up his look at The Beatles’ relationship with Bob Dylan. 

Plus, of course, we have the latest news, as well as reviews of recent video, books and recordings!
