Author Bob Kealing takes us through the momentous two weeks the Beatles spent in 1964 Florida: Miami Beach, Key West and Jacksonville. His lecture will include their seismic influence on a fraternity of future Rock and Roll luminaries in and around Gainesville: Tom Petty, Tom Leadon, Bernie Leadon, Don Felder, Ronnie Van Zant and others.
Kealing previewed his book in October at Tom Petty Weekend. It includes more than thirty new primary-source interviews and access to Beatle letters, artwork and historic documents from the Hard Rock Collection and the Flagler College Digital Civil Rights Collection.
