A WEBSITE devoted to random meetings between the public and The Beatles over the years is set to become a book.
The Facebook page, called The Beatles And Me, was set up “for a bit of a laugh” according to its creator Dean Johnson.
But in just a few months it has pictures and stories from hundreds of encounters with John, Paul, George and Ringo over the decades.
It has become so successful that Dean and Jennifer Smedley, the creative director of Liverpool-based Plantapress, now plan to turn the web page into a book.
Jennifer said the idea came up after she met Dean through a mutual friend.
She said: “Dean told me about it and how he thought it would make a good book – and I thought ‘yes, let’s do it’.”
The book will be Plantapress’ fourth title and they believe it will attract wide interest. Jennifer said: “I think it has real global interest and potential. It is so unusual and has such personal stories – I think there will be a massive market for it.”
