Yes, there was GOOD in 2020...especially in The Beatles World! Hosts Jude Southerland Kessler of The John Lennon Series and Lanea Stagg of The Recipe Records Series selected six of the most outstanding Beatles-inspired media of 2020 and sat down to chat with the creators. You'll hear from noted author (Long and Winding Roads: The Evolving Artistry of The Beatles, Maximum Volume: The Life of Beatles Producer, George Martin, and many others), Dr. Ken Womack, talking about his brilliant new book John Lennon 1980. Then, author and filmmaker, Jim Berkenstadt, fills us in on the new film that's being made from his best-seller, The Beatle Who Vanished on the life of drummer Jimmie Nicol. Nicole drummed for The Beatles in June of 1964 when Ringo was ill. The story is exciting! Then, Rock'n'Roll Hall of Fame lead guitarist for The Cars, Elliot Easton, joins Jude and Lanea to talk about his super-group, The Empty Hearts. The blockbuster band has just released The Empty Hearts Second Album, with Ringo Starr on drums during one number! You'll love this! Next up, Sirius XM's Tom Frangione announces his brand new Channel 18 (The Beatles Channel) weekly radio program, "Way Beyond Compare" that breaks down rare and unheard Beatles songs. And distinguished author, Bruce Spizer, who has published 13 books on The Beatles shares the scoop from his latest Beatles Album Series, The Beatles Finally Let It Be. Bruce has always been a best-seller with works such at The Beatles are Coming! and The Beatles for Sale on Parlophone Records. This new book is no exception! And last but not least, author Andrew Grant Jackson drops by to talk about The Beatles solo careers in his hot new book, 1973: Music at the Crossroads. He also covers the work of The Stones, The Who, Aerosmith, and many more! There's so much to enjoy on this "Best of 2020" episode of "She Said She Said."
