Klaus was part of a group of The Beatles' friends in Hamburg. Now he has made some 'memory drawings' of our Hamburg days which are not only beautiful drawings in themselves, but which capture the spirit of the times. The really good thing about Klaus, his drawings, and this book, however, is that - unlike many other people – he was actually there!

This is my second Genesis book – the first one is Concert for George – and I have just one thing to say: what great work you do. The book is absolutely amazing, a book made with love.
