If you have the original BBs it is still well worth buying, if you don't - you simply can not afford not having this.
Thanks 'Johnny' for putting this edition together and entertaining us fans through the decades. Top work as always!
Suddenly, 1983 saw me buying any Beatles product I could lay my hands on, singles, eps, lps, posters and videos. I bought my first guitar because I wanted to be George Harrison (I still play to this day). My eyes caught sight of the Beatles Book Monthly in WHSmith on Fargate in Sheffield and I was absolutely hooked. I thus got my fix of Beatles news, past and present along with some glorious photographs every month until the magazine's editor published its final issue in 2003.
I was shocked when I picked up that last issue, totally unawares it was to be the very last one, looking at the wording on the cover 'Last Ever Issue' in utter disbelief and sadness. I felt like I'd lost an arm, or that an old reliable friend I had grown up with during my teen years and into adulthood had waved goodbye only to leave memories that would fade at the edges and disappear.
I found my first serious girlfriend through the Beatles Book Monthly, having placed an advert seeking Wings/Beatles mad pen-pals (in that order, with Wings first!). I received correspondence from across the world but I fell in love with a girl who lived an hour's drive away from where I lived, in the beautiful city of York.
We'd place romantic messages in the magazine's Classified Ads section.Read more ›
I emigrated to the UK in 1972 so it goes without saying, that there was a profound influence The Beatles had on me but musically and culturally.
For me coming to Britain was like discovering Aldus Huxley's "Brave New World".But now after reading this book I've got Beatlemania all over again!See you in August at The Beatles Festival in Liverpool.Gear FAB.
