An online Beatles fan club for and about Beatle fans
Brian Sommerville was my uncle. if anyone has photos or negatives with him, I would love to see or purchase. thanksJames Sommerville
James, I met your Uncle when I was an art student in London looking for work. I was introduced to him by someone I met and he asked me to draw a caricature of him. While I was sketching him we talked and I couldn’t believe it when he told me that the Beatles could walk in at any moment, sadly they didn’t! He seemed pleased with my final drawing and paid me 5 guineas, which in 1963 was a lot. I don’t know what he did with it but I still have the rough sketches that I did and I’d be happy to scan them and send them to you. My family are sick of me pointing out Brian whenever he appears in a documentary about The Beatles and saying “I met him !” I’ve always wondered what happened to him.
love how people connect on this site
Sadly I haven’t had a reply from James, I’m disappointed.
