Who should I interview at The Fest?

I just booked my hotel for LA’s edition of The Fest For Beatles Fans, and am incredibly psyched. I plan to spend this coming weekend immersed in sun-drenched SoCal Beatledom, writing down things to share with you. I also hope to interview as many people as I can, but I want to know who you’d like most, so I’ve embedded a poll below. Vote for the guests you’d like me to try to corner, and I’ll make a special effort to chat with your favorites.

Put suggestions for questions in the Comments!

    Are they all passing themselves off as Fifth Beatles? Talk to Mr. Badfinger. Their story is every bit as interesting as the Fabs; if not more so.

    Not sure if Joey Molland has anything valuable to say; the most interesting members of Badfinger are long gone.
    I’d like to know more about what John Lennon was planning post-1980.

    I voted for:

    Bruce Spizer (whose books are as well-researched as Mark Lewisohn’s Beatles history);

    Denny Laine (the most interesting ex-Wing, IMO);

    Freda Kelly;

    Peter Asher;

    and Andrew Grant Jackson, whose book on the solo Beatles I found interesting.

    I think Joey Molland could be interesting too. And please find out what “Michelle My Pelle” is. Send photos if possible!

    • Email me questions Nancy — I’ll be able to do some research before Friday, but not as much as I’d like. Freda Kelly I know about — or as much as the doc showed. The others, I’ll try to swot up on a little beforehand, and any intelligent questions will help.
