He spent 9 years working on his first book which has received international acclaim, and his second book “The Fab 104” has been universally lauded.

He is publishing a new book on The Beatles drummers with Garry Popper called “Looking for the Fourth Beatle” and is associate producer for the film “Looking for Lennon”.

Reviews of “Liddypool”

"The depth of David Bedford's research is unprecedented. This is a fascinating, valuable and devoted piece of detective work which will appeal to any fan of The Beatles."

Janine Ross, Marketing Manager, The Beatles Story Ltd.

"It's great to see a book from an author who is trying to sieve his way through all the various myths, legends and half-truths and paint a realistic picture of what really happened."

Rod Davis, The Quarrymen

"At last Liverpool has the Beatles book it deserves. Liddypool has been lovingly assembled, diligently researched and lavishly illustrated. Casual browser and avid fan alike will discover something they didn't already know about the world's most documented quartet.  I'd pay the cover price for the pictures alone."

Steve Turner, author of A Hard Day's Write.

It's a pleasure to help writers like you, David, and others in your quest for a more honest picture - and I wish you every success.”

Pauline Sutcliffe: Stuart Sutcliffe’s sister.

“David has always been a stickler for detail and passionate for facts. If I needed to know some obscure piece of information relating to The Beatles or Liverpool I knew I could rely on him to provide the answer. With the publication of this book, all the information I could require is now handily available within these pages!"

Pete Nash, Editor: British Beatles Fan Club Magazine
