Philip Kirkland was born in Derby, England, the day before the Beatles recorded their first album, Please Please Me, and has lived in Mexico since 2001. He has organized trips to the International Beatleweek in Liverpool, and broadcast about the Beatles via internet TV in Mexico. While blogging about every facet of the Beatles’ history, and the members’ solo careers, his main interest is historical research of the group’s early years, and the characters that surrounded them.
