Meanwhile fans will descend on Liverpool’s Beatles Story for an exclusive ‘meet and greet’ book signing on Saturday 18th May between 11am-4pm

Friends and family of The Fab Four came out en masse on Tuesday night for the official launch of Joe Flannery’s remarkable new book, Standing in the Wings – The Beatles, Brian Epstein and Me.

Pivotal figures from Liverpool’s musical past and present joined Joe at the award-winning Beatles Story attraction to celebrate the new book which charts the meteoric rise of The Beatles from their very earliest days in Liverpool.
Joe’s role as Brain Epstein’s business partner is well known amongst fans but he has – until now - kept silent about his vital role in The Beatle’s career. 

Standing in the Wings – The Beatles, Brian Epstein and Me lifts the lid on those heady early days as Joe and Epstein navigated the Swinging Sixties to bring The Beatles to a global audience.

The VIP launch party was attended by Councillor Lord Mayor Sharon Sullivan, Frieda Kelly (Beatles Fan Club), Merseybeat Popstar Beryl Marsden, Beatles and McCartney biographer Philip Norman, Roag Best (brother of original drummer Pete best), Colin Hanton (from The Quarrymen) and DJ Pete Price.

Having launched the book Joe will then make a personal appearance at The Beatles Story (in the Beatles themed Starbucks café) between 11am – 4pm on Saturday 18th May speaking to fans and signing his book for them.

Standing in the Wings – The Beatles, Brian Epstein and Me will be exclusively available at The Beatles Story for one month before going on general release.



There will be a very limited number of signed copies of Joe Flannery’s book ‘Standing in the Wings – The Beatles, Brian Epstein and Me’ available at The Beatles Story’s Fab4 store after the signing session. Visit http://www.beatlesstory.com/shop on 18th May for more details.
