This is an excellent Beatles book. Richard has made contact with fans throughout the world and they have told their stories of how they saw The Beatles live. It covers The Quarrymen 6/7/57 at St Peters Church Woolton when John & Paul met right through to Candlestick Park 29/8/66. Well done Richard.

Great read and so interesting to hear from Beatles fans and their stories about seeing the Fab Four. The photos and ticket stubs in the book really take you back in time.
