“Liddypool: Birthplace of The Beatles”

FOREWORD BY PETE BEST
Former Beatles drummer Pete Best certainly believes Liddypool is the definitive book on his hometown.
“Without going into too much detail because that would spoil it for when you read the book, I found it to be different in layout, ideas and topics, and, before I forget, here was an author that wasn’t afraid to express his own views and theories and blow some fresh air into early Beatles history.
“Having been a Beatle for two years and not professing to be a Beatle historian, to me this book is totally enlightening.” Pete Best, former Beatles drummer

“At last Liverpool has the Beatles book it deserves. ‘Liddypool’ has been lovingly assembled, diligently researched and lavishly illustrated. I’d pay the cover price for the pictures alone.” Steve Turner, author of “A Hard Day’s Write”
“It’s great to see a book from an author who is trying to sieve his way through all the various myths, legends and half-truths and paint a realistic picture of what really happened.” Rod Davis, The Quarrymen
