Meeting the Beatles

The response of the wider Beatles community to Yeah Yeah Yeah: The Beatles & Bournemouth continues to amaze everyone involved - and even the greatest fans of the Fab Four seem to be surprised at the links between the group and the town.
But for all those unique connections, many observers have noted the real guts of the story is the one aspect Bournemouth shares with countless other towns and cities the world over - the effect The Beatles had on a generation of fans and the townsfolk at large.
There's an endlessly fascinating blog called Meet The Beatles For Real in which fans from all over the world send in their snaps of the Fabs at work, rest and play along with stories of how they met the boys. It's pure social documentary, real window-on-the-world stuff. 
Naturally, they found plenty to interest them in the pages of Yeah Yeah Yeah: The Beatles & Bournemouth. Read the full review here.
Incidentally, if anyone knows the identify of this girl in Harry Taylor's photo of Paul and Ringo at the press reception in the Palace Court Hotel in Bournemouth, probably on 20 August 1963, then please get in touch.
Yeah Yeah Yeah: The Beatles & Bournemouth can be ordered here, as can a selection of rare photos from the book.
