Who's The Redhead On The Roof

a is for apple

An illustrated history of the Beatles' multimedia corporation

The Beatles' roadie speaks...

It's not often that a member of the Beatles' 'inner circle' tells his or her story - there have of course been books by Derek Taylor, Brian Epstein, Peter Brown, Tony Barrow and a handful of others directly involved with the Beatles; all of which have been very informative in their own right. We at Apcor are proud to announce that we have been granted the exclusive rights to publish in print the biography by Kevin Harrington, who started working as an office boy for NEMS in 1966 and worked his way up, first as a stagehand at Brian Epstein's Saville Theatre to become in charge of the Beatles' equipment from 1968 onwards and acted not only as their roadie for them but was also assigned many other chores and odd jobs. Kevin has written an informative and highly entertaining book about his experiences with the Beatles and takes you through their crazy day-to-day world, from the recording of The Beatles double album to the Get Back sessions at Twickenham, the rooftop concert, onto the recording of the Beatles' final album Abbey Road and finally to George's Friar Park and last, but by no means least, helping out at The Concert For Bangla Desh.


The book is illustrated with many unique and superb photos of Kevin, with or without the Beatles as well as rare documents and other memorabilia. Although Kevin's book has been available for some time already as an e-book, this printed edition will be a strictly limited hardcover edition of 500 copies only, including a bookplate signed by the author himself. Also, this is an expanded version compared to the digital version with a unique extra chapter about his experiences during the Concert For Bangla Desh, not included in the e-book version.



Who's The Redhead On The Roof...? - My Life With The Beatles is now available for pre-order!


This is a beautifully crafted, hardbound book, with a dust jacket and printed on 135 grams high quality paper with many B&W and color photos.


Remember: Only 500 numbered copies will be issued worldwide! The first 250 copies will include a special professional photographic art print of the Beatles during the 30 January 1969 rooftop concert (with Kevin clearly in the picture enjoying the show!). This professionally printed photograph (21x12.5 cm, 350 g/m²) is included at no extra cost, but will only be included with the first 250 orders! All 500 copies will be numbered and will include a bookplate signed by Kevin Harrington!


Apcor Books will now be taking pre-orders for this book - please note that the book will not be shipped before March 2016.


We have made every effort to keep the price as low as possible and we think we can say that at an all-in price of Euros 26.50, which includes worldwide shipping, handling and packing, we have succeeded in that!


Don't hesitate and get your orders in as soon as possible in order to get one of the 250 photographic prints! Avoid disappointment and order now! (Remember that our first publication, A Is For Apple Volume 1 sold out within one month!).
