Mal Evans’ son, Gary, released this statement when announcing the book about his dad that he worked on with Ken Womack:
“My dad meant the world to me. He was my hero. Before Ken joined the project, I thought I knew the story of my dad. But what I knew was in monochrome; 15 months later it is like The Wizard Of Oz (dad’s favorite film) because Ken has added so much color, so much light to his story. Ken has shown me that dad was the Beatles’ greatest friend. He was lucky to meet them, but they had more good fortune with dad walking down the Cavern steps for the first time.”
Now, the book is here. Gary will be on hand to discuss it and his dad, who has such a prominent place in Beatles history.
