Were you at the Beatles' 1965 Shea Stadium concert? What do you
remember about it?
Dave Schwensen, author of "The Beatles In Cleveland: Memories, Facts
& Photos About The Notorious 1964 & 1966 Concerts," is
putting together a book on the famed Aug. 15, 1965, concert that was
later televised on ABC-TV in the U.S. (You can see a video clip of the
Beatles singing "Help!" from the concert at the bottom of the page.)
He told us it all came about because, "rock photographer Philip
Kamin, (http://www.philipkaminimages.com/) had read "The Beatles In
Cleveland" and contacted me. He was an official photographer for Paul
McCartney around 1979 and same on a few Rolling Stones tours, Genesis,
Van Halen and more. Very respected. He also owns the copyrights for more
than 50 photos from the (Shea Stadium) concert taken by Marc
He said the idea for the book, though, is more than
just pictures. "Instead of this being simply a 'picture book,' we want
readers to feel they're actually at the concert -- what was going on
leading up to that famous event, behind the scenes, back stage, etc. You
know, the full treatment."
He said he's looking to hear from
fans who were there at the show.
"We're only about two weeks into
this and I've done a lot of research, but what I'm looking for now are
memories from fans -- or anyone with a connection, including workers,
security, etc. -- who were at the concert. They can send me an email
with their story and I'm also scheduling phone interviews. The goal is
to put it all together moment by moment - with sights, sounds and
emotions." A website has been set up at www.BeatlesSheaStadium.com.
