Mersey Beatles Theatre Severn 25/September/2022 I think the most amazing truth about the Beatles music is the fact that just 18 years after the West and the East met in Berlin to destroy fascism together; The Beatles were riding high at number one with “I wanna hold your hand.” Doesn’t it make you wonder, did the one lead to the other? Would have love been all you need if we had never had the...
