New John Lennon Biography to be Released for Beatles
50th Anniversary

- Tuesday, October 01, 2013

Beatles expert and author Jude Southerland Kessler has announced that the upcoming release of her third book has been delayed to coincide with Beatles anniversary. The much anticipated third book She Loves You, in the highly acclaimed John Lennon Series, which was due to be released on October 9, 2013 has been pushed back by its author Jude Southerland Kessler. The new release date will be February 7, 2014 when the book will make its formal debut at the Beatles Conference in Altoona, Pa.

We ended up in Montreal, which turned out to be a good thing. The interview vividly recalls the musician’s December 1969 peace mission in Canada that culminated with a private meeting between the pop superstar and then-prime minister Pierre Trudeau.

Beatlemania: 'the screamers' and other tales of fandom
- Monday, September 30, 2013

Fifty years ago, Beatlemania shocked the world, drawing hostility and pity from press and public alike. But the screamers were neither the first nor the last to be starstruck… The first time Scottish concert promoter Andi Lothian booked the Beatles, in the frozen January of 1963, only 15 people showed up.
