Joe Flannery book signing on June 20th and July 3rd


Joe Flannery has been described as the ‘secret Beatle’, and as the business associate and childhood friend of Brian Epstein he became an integral part of The Beatles’ management team during their rise to fame in the early 1960s. Standing in the Wings is Flannery’s account of this fascinating era, which included the controversial dismissal of Pete Best from the group (nothing to do with London, but matters back in Liverpool), Brian Epstein’s fragility, and the importance of the Star Club in Hamburg.

This book is not simply a biography, as it also considers issues to do with sexuality in 1950s Liverpool, the vagaries of the music business at that time, and the hazards of personal management in the ‘swinging sixties’. At its heart, 'Standing in the Wings' provides an in-depth look at Flannery’s personal and professional relationship with Epstein and his close links with The Fab Four.

Shortly before John Lennon’s murder in 1980, Flannery was one of the last people to talk to the great man. Indeed, Flannery remains one of the few ‘Beatle people’ in Liverpool to have the respect of the surviving Beatles, and this is reflected in this timely and revealing book.

Joe will be signing copies of his book in The Beatles Story, Starbucks on June 20th and also on July 3rd from 11:00.

The book is also available to buy through our 'Fab 4 Store', you can find it by clicking here.
