Hello again Beatles fans. I want to tell you a little about a friend of mine that you may also know if you’ve attended any Beatles conventions over the last few years in the U.S. or U.K. His name is David Bedford (or Dave, or Partly Dave, or Liddypool Dave – he has a few such nicknames). Dave, a lifelong Beatles fan, was born In 1965 in the Liverpool area known as The Dingle and very near the Madryn Street home where Ringo Starr began his childhood. Currently he lives with his family in a Liverpool home near Penny Lane.
Dave was diagnosed with fibromyalgia early in life which forced him to retire from his job in 2000 at the age of 35. He was advised by his doctor to find an interest that would occupy his time productively. With his love of The Beatles, Dave had no trouble deciding what that would involve.
