A big fan of The Beatles growing up in the 60s, Seth Swirsky noticed that whenever he heard someone relating a story about themselves and The Beatles, he was “all ears”. So, starting in 2005, he sought out and filmed those with never before heard, “Beatles Stories,”

Songwriter Seth Swirsky grew up in the 1960s idolizing the Beatles – their songs, their sound and their style. In 2004, he set out, video camera in hand, to talk to people who had crossed paths with his heroes. From Sir Ben Kingsley to Sir George Martin, and Beach Boy Brian Wilson to astronomer Brian Skiff, Swirsky filmed hundreds of personal recollections from people who knew them well to those who just had an unforgettable encounter.

Others who shared their recollections of the Fabs include: actors Henry Winkler (aka “The Fonz”) and Jon Voight; former Beatles recording engineers Norman “Hurricane” Smith, Ken Scott, and John Kurlander; musicians Smokey Robinson, Jackie DeShannon, Graham Nash, Davy Jones, Susanna Hoffs and Art Garfunkel, among dozens of others. Swirsky found stories in unexpected places, getting Beatles’ intimates to open up – neighbors, tour mates, business associates, and even former girlfriends – telling stories you’ve never heard before.
