May 15 – R.I.P. Astrid Kirchherr

Sadly, Beatles author Mark Lewisohn has reported that Astrid Kirchherr, friend (and for a time, girlfriend of Stuart Sutcliffe) and photographer of the Beatles during their per-international fame days in Hamburg, passed away this week on 5/12/20.  She was just shy of her 82nd birthday.  She seemed like a very gentle soul.  God speed, Astrid.

  1. She helped them in so many way…the pictures, clothes, and style. She never asked for anything…great lady. They owe her a lot.
