I became a friend of the Beatles in Hamburg and later travelled with them throughout the world in the heady days of Beatlemania and we spent a lot of time in each other's homes. I set up (and, of course, attended) their meeting with Elvis Presley in 1965. I want to thank all those Beatles fans (you know who you are) who helped jog my memory when it came to writing my new book (May 1) THE BEATLES: Messages from John, Paul, George and Ringo. It features on the cover an interesting postcard John sent me from Genoa on which he had drawn Stuart Sutcliffe into a photograph of the group. I am planning to have this auctioned for charity.The book is available now via Kindle on Amazon U.S.
