The Beatles’ former press officer, who coined the term ‘The Fab Four’ to describe the band, has died.

Tony Barrow represented the band between 1962 and 1968 and also wrote sleeve notes for their early albums, as well as the strip cartoon for the Magical Mystery Tour booklet.

Mr Barrow died on Saturday night, aged 80, at his home in Morecambe.

He had also represented other Merseybeat acts such as Gerry and the Pacemakers and Cilla Black. [More]
