This month celebrates the 50th anniversary of the Beatles' first single, Love Me Do. To coincide with the event, writer and music journalist Paolo Hewitt has taken the opportunity to create a brand new biography of the band, taking the reader from the group's beginnings in the late 50s to the existing member's reformation in 1996, when Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr recorded and released two of John Lennon's songs.
Love Me Do takes a new approach to the band's story, with Hewitt including little-known moments including the Beatles' audition to be Billy Fury's backing band and George Harrison being deported from Hamburg; to more famous moments such as the band's stint at The Cavern and their 1969 rooftop show. Paolo Hewitt's previous work includes the A-Z of Mod, a comprehensive guide co-written by Mark Baxter with sections from 'Absolute beginners' to 'Zoot Money'.
Love Me Do by Paolo Hewitt is available now, published by Quercus.

London's Somerset House is currently playing host to a unique exhibition, celebrating the work of visionary hairstylist Vidal Sassoon. Creating iconic looks for 60s icons and tastemakers including Mia Farrow and Peggy Moffitt, Sassoon's work played a key part in the decade's fashion and cultural shifts.
Combining photography, artwork and film, the exhibition explores how Sassoon's modernist styles challenged the pre-existing ideals of feminine beauty. From the gamine pixie cut to razor-sharp asymmetric crops, the stylist's aim was to save women from hours of rollers and overhead dryers and provide them with timeless cuts that would stay fresh long after they left the salon.
Vidal Sassoon: Outtakes is taking place in the South Wing of the Courtyard Rooms at Somerset House until Sunday 28th October. Click HERE for more information.
