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, even former girlfriends–all telling stories you’ve never heard before! Longtime Beatles friend and personal assistant Tony Bramwell calls Beatles Stories, “A Magical Mystery Tour de Force!”

Utilizing rare archival footage and insights from the guitarist’s side of the stage, Can't Stand Losing You brings together past and present as the band members reunite, thirty years later, for a massive world tour.
