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….

 Saying hello to former ABC NY Meteorologist, Bill Evans, @WPLJReunion last night. He’s now @WLNG 92FM out in the Hamptons.  Dessert: Shaved Ice @PigandKhao on the lower east side with @thelaravee, Christopher Singh and Maria Singh. So full...  Last night @irvingplaza in NYC, I went to see Mike Peters and The Alarm with opening act Ryan Hamilton, who was fun to watch as a one man band. He had the audience in his corner. Mike and his band came out blazing. Everyone sang with Mike all night. Just a fab night all around. My son was born during the making of the Change album. So it was a great reunion. #TheAlarm #theryanhamilton
 @chaseedwardsgallery ... come by if you want something to do June 15th.  A quick catch up with Ashley Davie before he headed back to Birmingham. Have to make the trip longer next time and I’m glad he got to see The Met exhibit Play It Loud.  What a great surprise to run into Debora Francis while I was having a meeting with Hillary @duggalnyc to discuss my upcoming photo show in Bridgehampton.
 Pinball Wizard - The Who with full orchestra. #TheWho #MSG  A break for an easy afternoon lunch to catch up.  In mid-town NYC with Andrew Loog Oldham and his lovely wife, Esther.
