Well, I think we may have discovered the all-time absolute bottom of the barrel in terms of Beatles tell-all books.
Ladies and germs, the biography of Jimmy Nicol, the guy behind the drum kit in the photo below...
...whose fifteen minutes of fame only lasted only about as long as a couple of paradiddles.
I don't know which is more amazing -- the fact that somebody actually took the time and effort to write a book about a guy whose claim to history is that he subbed for Ringo while he (Ringo) was having his tonsils out, or that the book comes with a foreword by "former Beatle Chas Newby."
Who is, apparently, a real person, albeit one whose name could have been invented by Monty Python. Seems he played four shows as the Fabs bassist immediately after the departure of Stu Sutcliffe.
All I can figure is that both of those guys must be really pissed they weren't even mentioned in Good Ol' Freda.
