    A is for Astrid…A very important lady in all of our lives. Did these four friends have the ability to help her with her loss? Did anyone? A heavy burden for such a young beautiful girl. The four boys had lost a dear friend, but Astrid had lost so much more. This picture is a rare photo of that collective heartbreak. And I love her.

    Where is Klaus (…click…) Voormann?

  4. Astrid says:

    @Kwai Chang
    Klaus Vormann wasn’t there, I remember that this was taken during the filming of A Hard Days Night, there are other shots in the train and at Greenstreet with George and Ringo from that time. There is a book with pictures from this shootings, plus others that were taken in Liverpool. That book was called “Liverpool days”.

    And the loss of Stu…well, Astrid married Gibson Kemp (a musician) in 1967, her second husband (whose name I do not know) is still her manager, so I think she managed to get over it. Time heals all wounds you know.

    But you are right…she is a great lady, we all have to thank her. Although she always hated to be minimized to the Beatles connection….she had so much more to give, she was a brilliant photographer.

    It is for her that I love my name…..

    Her moody shadow pics of them are so far out…they’re in! In truth, I have never thought of Astrid for Beatle connection, but rather, the connection they had to her. She was their first ‘Cool’ role model and mentor of the feminine gender. I bet they were more in awe of Stu than ever, when he an Astrid became an item…uh, I meant envious!

    (Time to meditate): Close your eyes. What do you hear? Do you hear the sound of your own heartbeat. The path will only be clear to those who do not seek it. HONK if you love peace and quiet…

    Did Australia sink? Or is Grammy headed to the high country to become a Scotsman?
