Astrid Kircherr RIP

Astrid Kircherr became a friend of the Fabs in the Hamburg days, and documented their rise to fame. She was also advisor on the film Backbeat, still the best biopic on the Beatles to this day. RIP Astrid Kircherr

I think we can safely say that there would been a successful Beatles without Astrid. But who knows what that would have looked like.

I suspect that she made a real difference to them and helped make them what they became. And for that I am eternally grateful.
