Unlike some of the other Beatles associate’s books, Ellis has not written this book in a sensationalist way with stories of sex and drugs and rock and roll. Rather, he concentrates on the business side of things, such as how the Beatles tax affairs, publishing and merchandising ventures were run. It’s not all heavy stuff though. There’s anecdotes of how he was with the Beatles and Brian Epstein in New York in 1964 during the madness of that first US tour; going with them to the Bahamas during the filming of Help; plus looking after Ringo Starr in Rome when he was making the film, Candy.
He also pays homage to another often-forgotten Beatles’ associate, namely Wendy Hanson, who was Brian Epstein’s PA for a time in the 1960’s. Sadly, she died in tragic circumstances in the 1990’s, but the book includes a fascinating account from Wendy of what it was like being on tour with the Beatles in the USA, during the height of Beatlemania and the dangers that involved.Read more ›
