The Beatles world lost another personality this week, when it was announced that Alan Aldridge had passed away. Aldridge is best known to Beatles fans as the author of the book ‘The Beatles Illustrated Lyrics’ – which is in the collection of many thousands of Beatles fans. What isn’t so well known, though, is that Aldridge also did the lettering for the Beatles ‘Apple’ record label. The Apple design itself was by Gene Mahon.
Aldridge also designed the cover of ‘The Who’ album ‘A Quick One’.
RIP Alan Aldridge.
