Ray McFall dead
Ray McFall, legendary owner of the Cavern Club, has died last night. McFall was the man who first booked the Beatles, but also Rory Storm & The Hurricanes, at the Cavern. He bought the club from its previous owner Alan Sytner in 1959 and turned it from a jazz club into a rock 'n' roll venue. The rest, as they say, is history...

NEW BOOK: 'THE BEATLES in my life' by BI!!!
BEATLES INTERNATIONAL, proudly presents its VERY OWN BEATLES PICTURE BOOK!
"The BEATLES In My Life"
This book contains over 250 of my own pictures, (with a few exceptions) taken through the years of BEATLES (-related) people.
Never before seen and therefore unique (LIVE) Pictures of Paul (1987-2012), George (1989) and Ringo (1998), pictures of Beatles' relatives, pictures of people they worked with and band members. The book also includes pictures of Beatles-related historical and memorable places (mainly in The Netherlands) where Beatles footprints were left behind.
I never saw, let alone met John, but to honour him I used a picture of him an Yoko in the Amsterdam Hilton in 1969 and a few, taken by our Liverpool reporter Paul Sherlock: John projected on the Albert Dock building when the city remembered his Legacy in 2007.
To give you an idea of who's in the book, just have a look at the back cover for a selection.
Because it's so unique and a true DIY release, the book, will cost £ 50,- € 55,-.

ACTING NATURALLY: INTERVIEW RINGO
Ringo Starr (Photo by Kevin Winter)
Does the world’s greatest drummer really need an introduction? Not really. Who hasn’t heard of Ringo Starr? The one-time Beatle? The charismatic actor of A Hard Day’s Night and The Magic Christian? The Fab who right out of the gate, following the break-up of The Beatles at the end of the 1960s, defied all expectations by having, at least for a while, the best solo career of his fellow band mates? Despite a dark period marked by drug abuse, alcoholism, and artistic shiftlessness (while simultaneously being a decadent globe-trotting European playboy in the late 1970s through to the end of the 1980s), The Ringed One’s glory days are many, continuing even now, with the 25th anniversary tour of his All-Starr Band which kicked off at Casino Rama in Ontario on June 5.
