In the Current Issue (#256)

Beatlefan #256 covers the recent new tours on which Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr returned to touring, with reviews, news and photos. Also in the new issue, we take note of several solo Beatle anniversaries, with Brad Hundt looking back 20 years at the role Macca’s 2002 Driving USA tour played in his career, and John Firehammer focusing on Ringo’s “Time Takes Time” album comeback 30 years ago and the controversies stirred up by Wings’ singles 50 years ago. We also share two differing viewpoints from Rip Rense and Kathy Urbanic on how Yoko Ono is portrayed in “The Beatles: Get Back,” Al Sussman examines McCartney’s “Memory Almost Full” album, and Kit O’Toole talks with biographer Ken Womack about his upcoming books on longtime Beatles aide Mal Evans. Plus, of course, we have the latest news (including Ringo’s honorary doctorate), and reviews of new books.
