Beatles insider Tony Bramwell to publish new book

February 23, 2009

By Katie Hickox, Beatles News reporter

The last photo of Brian Epstein and Tony Bramwell during the "All You Need is Love" taping in late June, 1967.


Tony Bramwell, former Beatles Road Manager and close friend of the Beatles, revealed yesterday during an online chat with Joe Johnson's Beatle Brunch Radio Club members that he has finished writing a second new book after having published the groundbreaking "Magical Mystery Tours: My Life With the Beatles" in 2005.  His co-author will be Rosemary Kingsland and he hopes to have it published in the next year or so.  He didn't reveal the name of the new book but said they are working on finalizing a name.

In the interview, Tony told Joe Johnson that the very last picture of Beatles Manager Brian Epstein that was ever taken, was with him during the "All You Need is Love" taping in late June, 1967.

Tony also revealed that he filmed the Beatles performing at Shea Stadium and that his film has still not been released by Apple!  Tony says he "was in charge of filming Shea and did the final editing and overdubs."  Apparently Apple Records holds a treasure trove of films, promo films and photos that Tony produced while he worked with the Beatles from the very beginning after Brian signed the Beatles to their first contract in early 1962, and asked Tony to come work for him and help him with the Beatles concerts.

Tony says he doesn't know when or if Apple will ever get around to releasing the Beatles Shea Stadium performance.  When asked when the Beatles Shea Stadium film will finally be distributed, Tony says "Apple have all the rights" and that "... remember to do any Beatle project Ringo Paul and Yoko and Olivia have to agree."  So, us Beatle fans need to write to Apple and petition them to release this important film and to also give credit to Tony for everything he produced during his time with the Beatles!  Here's a mailing address for Apple Records in London:

Apple Records
27 Ovington Square
London, SW3 1LJ
England

When asked whether he ever thought the Beatles would get as successful as they became, Tony replied, "Not really, there was always the hope that it would suceed, but they paid their dues. It was Brian (Epstein) who had the push to get it going."

The BeatleBrunchClub is part of Joe Johnson's "BeatleBrunchRadio" which airs weekly on dozens of radio stations around the US and offers members many benefits such as the ongoing exclusive live chats with Beatles celebrities.

The other guy featured in the photo. Time hasn't been kind to Tony. I really like his other book...he had some great stories about growing up in Liverpool and Stones 'Keef', Mick, and Brian. Dana ; )
