Apple insider's second Beatle book

PRODUCER and former manager of the American division of Apple Records Ken Mansfield (pictured) is to release his second insider account of the Fabs: The White Book - The Beatles, The Bands, The Biz, An Insider's Look at An Era.

A man who stood on the rooftop while The Beatles blasted out their final live performance over Saville Row can certainly say he saw history. There's an excellent website featuring an excerpt and a video interview with the author.

Former president of Apple Records, Jack Oliver, said of the author, who is now described as a Christian comedian and motivational speaker: " He is one of the few insiders left that bore witness to the highs and lows of those insane days when we ruled the world."

This is Mansfield's second memoir of his Apple days following, The Beatles, The Bible and Bodega Bay.

In fact, the author now uses the work of the band as part of his Christian ministry - the luxury lifestyle led to personal disaster before Mansfield was born-again.

As well as The Beatles,
Willie Nelson, the Beach Boys, Stan Kenton, Judy Garland, Merle Haggard, Lou Rawls, Andy Williams, David Cassidy, Dolly Parton, and the Flying Burrito Brothers feature on Mansfields CV.
