Beatlemania Hamburg closes
Wogblog has reported about this museum since before it opened, and I've had the pleasure to visit it twice. One of the times I was there, Astrid Kirschherr came out of the elevator as I was entering it. I also had the pleasure of meeting Klaus Voormann at his launch of the "Sideman's Journey" project at the museum. The Beatlemania Hamurg was for me a better museum than "The Beatles' Story" in Liverpool, because the German museum had a lot of original memorabilia and artifacts from the sixties, whereas "The Beatles' Story" is full of modern day replicas. BEATLEMANIA will close its doors for the last time on June 30, 2012. We are hoping for a rescue operation...
