Default British Beatles Fanclub: Worth joining?

I'm thinking of joining the British Beatles Fan club, and was wondering if the there are any recommendations. Is it good value for money? Are the magazines any good?

My daughter was so kind to bring one of their magazines back from a London visit last year.

If that one is representative for their usual magazines - four a year - I can say it is pretty good. I have seen quite a few from different fanclubs but this one is really good. Good paper quality, so therefore quality pictures..

It has some 40 pages with articles, reviews of recent or other releases of records/books, many advertisements (even interesting ones), a "Diary" about the latest happenings around the Beatles, info regarding Beatles related websites..

They have a website

Seeing as how the former publisher is my friend's husband and I've written for them a number of times, yeah, I think it's a good publication.

I love the "Crap Photo" page - terrible pictures people have taken of the Beatles (far away, out of focus, back of his head) with snarky captions. It always cracks me up.

hey cool .. I wrote for Beatles Unlimited a couple of times

That "Crap Photo" page is indeed cracking material

there is one of Paul where he looks.. like he just came from writing "Yesterday" and one of Ringo on keyboards from an audience position, and if someone would have said it is Billy Joel I'd also had believed it..

I'm going to move this to Paperback Writer where more magazine readers might see it.

It does sound interesting. Do you have to live in the UK to join?
