Loved ‘Backbeat’ at the cinema, so read the book. This is a much more factual documentation of Stuart's life, well researched and benefiting immensely from the close collaboration of Astrid Kirchherr, who supplied the facts concerning Sutcliffe’s time spent in Hamburg.
Starts out with his childhood in Liverpool, fills in the picture on long-term friendship with John Lennon, then follows the Beatles struggles and success' as a young band. Ultimately though, this is a book that explores the effects of Stuart’s illness in depth, the strengths and strains in the relationship with Astrid and the reactions of his family back home.
Nice little collection of photos including: his artwork in progress/ playing on the beach with John/ Hamburg nightclub with Astrid & Klaus. ( )
