George with Stan Perkins

Son of Carl Perkins, Stan recalls meeting the Beatles:

“They were huge fans of my dad’s and I was a fan of theirs,” he said. “After all, they were The Beatles and it was 1964.”

Stan said it didn’t take many meetings before he realized they were a great group of guys, who just happened to be the most popular band in the world.

“George was as down to earth as anyone I knew, which made it easy to get to know him,” he said. “Now, for me to have the opportunity to be a part of an effort to re-establish the importance early Rock and Roll played in the lives of The Beatles and the development of their style of music is exciting, very exciting!”
