And now for a little more about our Beatle’s connection…
Stuart Sutcliffe who was born in 1940 was the Beatles original bassist and was credited with coining the name with John Lennon as they both liked Buddy Holly’s band The Crickets. Following successful stints with the band in Liverpool and then Hamburg where he met his fiancée, photographer Astrid Kircherr, Sutcliffe decided to leave the band in July 1961 to pursue a postgraduate scholarship in Hamburg College of Art. Sadly he died in 1962, aged just 21. Although Lennon did not attend or send flowers to Sutcliffe’s funeral, Yoko Ono remembers that that Lennon mentioned Sutcliffe's name very often, saying that he was "[My] alter ego ... a spirit in his world ... a guiding force.
Kircherr was supported by Lennon following Sutcliffe’s death and continued to work as a freelance photographer, maintaining strong links with the Beatles, including taking the behind the scenes shots during the filming of a Hard Days Night in 1964. Many of her early images of the Beatles including several signed copies along with other memorabilia are now on display at the hotel.
