JOHN HIGGS, Love and Let Die: Bond, the Beatles and the British Psyche

JOHN HIGGS, Love and Let Die: Bond, the Beatles and the British Psyche

The Beatles are the biggest band there has ever been. James Bond is the single most successful movie character of all time. They are also twins. Dr No, the first Bond film, and 'Love Me Do', the first Beatles record, were both released on the same day - Friday, 5 October 1962. Most countries can only dream of a cultural export becoming a worldwide phenomenon on this scale. For Britain to produce two on the same windy October afternoon is unprecedented.
This is the story of a clash between working-class liberation and establishment control, and how it exploded on the global stage. It explains why James Bond hated the Beatles, why Paul McCartney wanted to be Bond and why it was Ringo who won the heart of a Bond Girl in the end.

Venerable raver and Whitstable shaman/postman CJ Stone will interview Higgs.
