This book takes the reader through the sexual highlights (and lowlights) in the lives/careers of the Fab Four from adolescence to the present. It focuses mainly on the Quarry Men and Beatles years, but continues right through the solo era to 2013. Punctuated with illustrations featuring 'the luv bugs'. As humorous as it is salaciously informative, this account avoids opinionating and moralizing, and instead focuses on delivering the goodies ie. the juicy stuff. (Is sex a vital part of life? Was it especially so for the Beatles? Aren't you glad your parents had sex, at least once? Yeah, yeah, yeah!)

Beatles Radio History Tour to Great Britain
Liverpool and London The Beatles' Liverpool Day Tour delivered by Jackie Our full day tour of The Beatles' Liverpool is the most comprehensive tour of its kind. The time spent on the coach is limited to transportation. We will not do a 'drive by' of a significant Beatle sight unless we come across a physical or legal restriction. Our team of Beatle experts have put together a day of true historic and memorable Beatle sights in the city. Each sight has a story to tell that will fascinate even the most knowledgeable fans. We have a great mix of some of the better known sights with those that are little known but weigh heavily in Beatles history. The tour was developed by our staff & our genuine Liverpudlian tour guide, Jackie. You will hear first hand accounts of The Beatles' lives as told by locals that where there when it happened.
The day includes a visit to The Casbah Coffee Club with an exclusive tour of the club delivered by either Roag or Rory Best. You will hear a story of The Beatles' 'true beginnings' directly from the source. You are in direct contact with the people that can give you an eye witness account of the real Beatles story. The tales will amaze you. On display for your viewing pleasure are many of the genuine Beatle artifacts that the [Pete] Best family has preserved over the years. As you can see in a few of our tour photos, Pete Best has been know to stop by and meet the fans on The Beatle Pilgrimage Tour
We'll stop by St. Peter's Parish Hall and meet Dave - he was there when John & Paul met for the first time. We'll see Beatle birthplaces, schools and childhood homes. There's also a roundabout with a banker, barber & shelter and you will be taken down to a place where nothing is real. Dave will show you a picture drawn by John when he was just a toddler... it doesn't get much better than that.
More to follow next week!
