THE BEATLES: Messages from John, Paul, George and Ringo THE postcard on the cover of this book says it all. The card was written by John Lennon and sent to his friend Chris Hutchins. On the card’s photograph of the Beatles, John had drawn a fifth member – the founder of the group Stuart Sutcliffe who John went on to describe as the best friend he ever had. This is the kind of confidence John, Paul George and Ringo shared with writer Hutchins who they befriended in their days as ‘unknowns’ in Hamburg. He shared their adventures during the heady days of Beatlemania; he was with them during their American tours in the 60s, sharing their euphoria and their sad moments. It was, for example, at Hutchins’ Chelsea apartment that Paul met the actress Jane Asher, who he later became engaged to. And it was Hutchins who arranged a party with Elvis Presley, the man they had always wanted to meet – alas, a meeting which was to cause a cataclysmic feud between Presley and Lennon which the author explains in detail along with how President Nixon and J Edgar Hoover got involved. This is the Beatles story from the inside . . .Über den Autor:
CHRIS HUTCHINS is an established author of highly acclaimed biographies of the rich, the famous and the royals. His first, FERGIE CONFIDENTIAL, was an intimate biography of the Duchess of York and chronicled her troubled marriage to the Queen’s favourite son. This was followed by a revelatory biography of the late Princess of Wales, DIANA’S NIGHTMARE, and an acclaimed psychological profile of her, DIANA ON THE EDGE. ATHINA, The Last Onassis penetrated deeply into the world of the Onassis dynasty. ELVIS MEETS THE BEATLES was about the night he took the group to meet Presley and the serious repercussions which followed. More recently Hutchins has turned his attention to matters Russian with fearless biographies of that country’s leader, PUTIN, and best-known oligarch ABRAMOVICH: The billionaire from nowhere. The author returned to the royal stage with HARRY: The People’s Prince.
