IN THE NEWS:
The Fifth Beatle is still making waves, and this week Vivek surfed them to SiriusXM Radio's "The Michelangelo Signorile Show." You can listen to them ON DEMAND until next Tuesday (click thru to page 3 to "view available episodes" of The Michelangelo Signorile Show).
ICYMI: Vivek wrote an essay about Brian Epstein for CBS's glorious Beatles minisite celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Beatles' first American television appearance on "The Ed Sullivan Show."
The Miami Herald digs The Fifth Beatle: "The art is clever and functional, limning a narrative that flows nicely from a script that’s sympathetic and mostly fact-based. Additional artist Kyle Baker imparts a page or a panel amid the proceedings with great effect and impact. The result is fun for fab four fans and perhaps even those who may not have been seduced by the timeless music or the legendary era."
Thanks for the support!
