Astrid Kirchherr, Beatle lady https://www.rollingstone.com/music/music-news/astrid-kirchherr-beatles-photographer-dead-obit-1000677/

In the above article, Rolling Stone magazine describes her as "a German-born photographer".

I'm trying to work out why she shouldn't be described simply as "a German photographer".

Mind you, the magazine tells us also that she died of a serious illness.

My medical qualifications are not extensive but fatal illnesses are always serious, aren't they?

In any event, she was there in the early days with John, Paul and George.

And, appropriately for a woman photographer, she was as pretty as a picture.

RIP Astrid.

They said the problem with Stu was he couldn't play well. Cool from a band who proactively brought in Ringo.

Three pop deaths in just over a week and you're still not satisfied.

Songs for the Monkees... I loved it when they admitted to the fans they'd mimed and 'instead of admiring our honesty in confessing, they were annoyed.' Interesting logic. 'I f**ked your wife and instead of admiring my honesty...'

Mory Kante... Just kept knocking out those hits. The Cliff Richard of Africa. How did he do it? What was his secret? I guess we'll never know.
