What goes on: Spring 2016 MTBRF update
Hello Beatle friends!
There isn't a Wednesday review this week because I am reading Phillip Norman's new Paul McCartney biography and it is a long book. So I figured this would be a good time to do an update on the blog.
As we head into the summer of 2016, I am excited to share photos and stories from the 1966 Beatles tour. If you have any rare photos or stories from any concert from 1966 PLEASE share it with me! Remember that these stories and photos are part of history and need to be preserved.
As you most likely have realized, I typically post five new blog posts a day Sunday - Thursday. Things in the summer tend to get a little more sporadic and I might not be as predictable with updating the blog as I am during the school year. Just know that I am still here!
If you have seen Paul during the One on One tour or Ringo on his All Starr tour and have stories or photos to share from the concerts, please send them in! We all love new photos as well as the old ones.
Lastly, I am going to have another plea to buy my book "Happiness is Seeing the Beatles: Beatlemania in St. Louis." I thought that someone that reads this blog would order the book after I posted about it last week, but nope. I understand that the Beatles in St. Louis might not be a topic all of you are interested in. Fair enough. However, I want to tell you that I put just as much work and care into the book as I do into this blog. I interviewed fan that shared some amazing stories that include sneaking on planes and on the field to fainting and screaming. I also interviewed members of the opening acts and various other living insiders. And most importantly, I searched archives far and wide to locate and license RARE PHOTOS for the book! Some of these photos were brand new to me when I discovered them. Even if you don't care about the city of St. Louis, the photos alone are really amazing. The book is 8 1/2 x 11 in size with 150 pages with color photographs (if available---many Beatles photos are black and white). Books cost $25 each and shipping within the United States is $3.25. You can pay through paypal and get a signed copy of the book at firstname.lastname@example.org or you can order it through Amazon.
If you have any questions about the book you can email me at either the beatlesbusch email address or my regular Starshyne9 address and I will be happy to answer your questions.
Peace and Love,
