    Author of "The Fab 104"

    Liverpudlian David Bedford's new book, The Fab 104, premiered last February at the NYC FEST. The 104 refers to the number of musicians/friends/others who were involved with the Beatles story from the Quarrymen (July 6, 1957) until the day Ringo completed the band in August of 1962. David's first book, Liddypool, is one of those essential books to own, giving us a great glimpse of what it was like to grow up in Liverpool and how that influenced the Beatles. His always entertaining talks and A/V presentations have become fan favorites.
