I’ve been reading and enjoying this over the last few days.
For some unfathomable reason, the Tesco near work has a fantastic range of local interest books all at reduced prices, so this baby was just over a fiver despite just having been published in paperback with a new foreword (it originally came out in 2008 but has been updated.)
It seems like McNab has spoken to every Scottish person ever associated with The Beatles or a Beatle, whether they were in Scotland at the time or emigre Scots in London in the sixties.
There are some pretty good pictures, but sadly not the one of John, Yoko and Kyoko outside what was RBS in Shandwick Place – it was originally taken by a photographer for the Edinburgh Evening News or perhaps The Scotsman. That picture has bugged me for years; I first saw it Douglas Healy’s John Lennon in Edinburgh, than as what I assume was a colourised version of the black and white original in an Evening News supplement a few years ago – but all searches of the websites of each paper yield nothing.
Maybe they just lost the negative?
I’ll try to get a good scan soon and add it to the site.
