A night out with the Bootleg Beatles – and their New John
Can I have another one of my Beatle moments? You’ll know by now that it’s an obsession and last night I got to indulge it in Croydon (!) where I was at Fairfield Halls to see The Bootleg Beatles (if you love The Beatles, you have to go and see them – they’re touring the UK for the rest of March and head to Oz in April).
I first saw the BBs in 2001 and the line-up has changed a couple of times since then. But when we saw them in early 2011, with rumours circulating that founding member Neil Harrison (John) was on the outs, it was a bit of a worry.
We needn’t have been troubled; it’s sad that Neil H hung up his fake ‘tache and round glasses, but the baton has been picked up by Lennon-clone-whipper-snapper Adam Hastings. And he is brill skillz, vocally and visually….
