Bill Harry and wife Virginia

Publicist (1969-70)

Bill Harry was born in Liverpool, England and attended the Livepool College of Art with John Lennon and Stuart Sutcliffe. He created the Mersey Beat magazine in 1961 to document the Liverpool music scene. This publication was the first to write about The Beatles.

Harry later worked as personal press agent for Led Zeppelin from 1969 to 1970, Suzi Quatro, Pink Floyd, Jehtro Tull, David Bowie, Free and Kim Wilde.

Harry was told by Peter Grant that they wouldn't do TV. He remembered doing just one show with them for TV. They wouldn't do interviews. It was part of a thing he created which was successful. While everyone else was giving interviews for every other paper, the laws of trying to get as much publicity as possible, they didn't. It was more like keeping the press off them.

Harry has written many books on the Beatles and is current Chief Consultant to Rock and Pop Shop, a memorabilia company.
