Tony Barrow, The Beatles's First Press Officer (1936 – 2016)
Our thoughts are with the family and friends of Tony Barrow, who passed away at the weekend.
Tony was the Beatles' first press officer and he played an invaluable role in their early career. At a time when the band had a schedule of uninterrupted touring and countless appearances, Tony managed the ceaseless press activity.
He also fulfilled a multitude of other jobs, from writing album sleeve notes to editing the Magical Mystery Tour strip cartoon book.
With love from all at Apple.
