Some Quotes:
“It’s really good to see Astrid’s great photos, and Klaus’s new paintings put together in one set of books — with all the usual care from Genesis."
— George Harrison
“I am really grateful for Paul McCartney’s memories and assistance, for helping to recreate images of those great times — some wilder than others"
— Klaus Voormann
“Klaus was part of a group of The Beatles' friends in Hamburg. Now he has made some 'memory drawings' of our Hamburg days which are not only beautiful drawings in themselves, but which capture the spirit of the times. The really good thing about Klaus, his drawings, and this book, however, is that — unlike many other people — he was actually there!"
— Paul McCartney
