A Shout Out to Good Ol’ Freda

Posted by  on 
October 21, 2014

One of the highlights of my tour of Germany was seeing Freda Kelly again who was Brian Epstien’s Secretary and ran The Beatles fan club. She was over there for a screening of the 2013 documentary about her life as part of our Biography Days event. She has never spoken about it before and has had numerous book offers etc. but has always declined, as she didn’t feel that it was the right thing to do, she was and still is the soul of discretion. She finally decided to tell her story after all these years, as she puts it “I wanted to make a little film for my grandson, Niall, to know what his granny did in her youth. He’s three. I want him to be proud.” She is a very sensitive and caring woman, who I have a huge amount of respect for. The film is really wonderful and I would say it is essential watching for anyone interested in the real story of what went on behind the scenes with The Beatles….

 My friend Violet Benny invited me to this dinner tonight at the Natural Gourmet Institute. I’m so excited for this meal. #NGI  Before I left NJ, I was taken to breakfast @Amy’s Omelettes. What a place, great eggs and fabulous server to try and help me narrow down what I should order!  One more thing that Jesse Colin Young gave away tonight...this bag of coffee beans which I can’t wait to try it. #jessecolinyoungcoffee #dsminc #tobibar19 #thecuttingroomnyc
 @beacontheatre for fundraiser concert Love Rocks NYC! Waiting for the great music to start...Will Lee is MD and bandleader.  On my way to Monmouth University for a talk with Kenneth Womack. Should be a fun night. Ken talking about Sir George. Martin and me...well...can you guess???  Listening to stories by Jesse Colin Young at The Cutting Room. Feels like the old record days watching him speak. Can’t wait to see him perform. #jesseColinYoung #theyoungbloods #maypang
 Went down to the retail store that sells Nest Candles. I love their giant size diffusers. I won’t be running out of this stuff any time soon! The store is located on 252 Elizabeth Street in NYC if anyone wants to pick up some great smelling fragrance candles.  Here’s a motley crew. We were all at The Cutting Room for a one man play called 3 Egg Creams starring Vince Bandille. This play was inspired by & featuring the music of Lou Christie. Nice way to spend my Valentine’s Day. Left to right: Lou C, Ron (Lou’s drummer), Billy J Kramer, Q104.3 DJ Ken Dashow, me, Eddie & David Brigati (The Young Rascals & Joey Dee & the Starlighters.)  Tobi and I are at the Laurence and Chico Fashion Runway for their Fall/Winter 2019 collection. It’s packed here at Pier 59 at 2pm!
