"With greatly expanded text, this is the most revealing and frank personal 30-year chronicle of the group ever written. Insider Barry Miles covers the Beatles story from childhood to the break-up of the group."

We owe a lot to Barry Miles for the creation of those pages, but you really have to buy this book to get all the details - a day to day chronology of what happened to the four Beatles during the Beatles years!

i'm researching some information on the NEMS Enterprises company of the period 1967 onwards. Specifically i'm trying to find information on one employee Anthony/Tony Howard. He may not have been a NEMS employee but he certainly was an employee working on Beatles PR and marketing at one or another Brian Epstein music/Beatles ventures.
If anyone has any leads on this or recollections i would be delighted to know it.
Thank you

Hi Julian, thanks for your email. I've searched ebooks I have from Peter Brown, Tony Bramwell, Alistair Taylor and ebooks about NEMS - but so far, no Tony Howard showed up. Will let you know if I find anything.
