Hello, Goodbye In Rolling Stone, France
Hello, Goodbye: The Beatles in Tokyo, 1966 was featured in Rolling Stone, France, with a gallery of photos chosen from the book.
‘A sensitive photographer, Shimpei Asai loves The Beatles and it shows. With its careful layout, and with natural images mixed with still life ones, such as those of the band’s breakfast, the photos tell a truthful story. Bathed in white light, the Four Boys in the Wind are disarmingly natural.’ – Rolling Stone, France
Captions commenting on the photos were provided by author Shimpei Asai, his words offering a snapshot of the text in Hello, Goodbye: The Beatles in Tokyo, 1966.
‘Passing in silence the tumult surrounding these concerts, Asai brilliantly adds hundreds of very beautiful stones to the building of the Beatles myth, only two months before they decided to stop going on tour. ’ – Rolling Stone, France
