A fascinating look into Colin Hanton’s formative years and his career with THE QUARRY MEN
PRE:FAB! is the captivating memoir of Colin Hanton, telling of his early years as a musician and his career with John Lennon’s Quarry Men. Colin drummed with the band for three years between 1956–1959, during which time both Paul McCartney and George Harrison joined the group. In 1958, Colin played on the very first single that John, Paul and George ever recorded – their versions of Buddy Holly’s ‘That’ll Be the Day’ and a Paul and George composition: ‘In Spite of All the Danger’.
Co-written over a two-year period by Colin Hanton and Colin Hall, custodian for Mendips (John Lennon’s childhood home), PRE:FAB! tells the story of these history-in-the-making days. Colin Hanton’s memories serve as an insight not only into his early musical adventures with John, but also into the social history of war-time and post-war Liverpool.
PRE:FAB! has been made into a feature-length, documentary film that is COMING SOON!
“PRE:FAB! is a brilliant social commentary as well as being a thoughtful and insightful look behind the scenes of the formation of the biggest band ever – The Beatles!” Bob Harris
