Astrid Kirchherr on NPR

Hamburg-born Astrid Kirchherr met the Beatles in 1960, before they were famous, when they came to perform in Germany.  An art student in Hamburg, she took some of the earliest photographs of the group — now-classic shots that capture the foursome back before Ringo joined the band, back when Stuart Sutcliffe was playing bass. And Kirchherr has often been credited with convincing the band to adopt those iconic mop-tops.

Astrid recently gave a great interview to NPR’s Terry Gross to promote her new book  Yesterday: The Beatles Once Upon a Time. You can download, or listen to, the interview here.
