Twisted Sister founding member writing new Beatles column

Goldmine's April 2017 issue with Jay Jay French's Beatles column debut.

Jay Jay French, founding member and guitarist and manager of Twisted Sister, is the author of a brand new Beatles column for Goldmine, the long-time magazine for record collectors. The column, called “Now We’re 64!,” made its debut in the current (April 2017) issue and will run every other month. The magazine can be purchased in a Kindle version on Amazon.com and also can be found at Barnes & Noble stores until March 20. 

“Adding The Beatles to the list is really exciting for me,” French told the magazine. “Although it seems that everything that could be written about The Beatles has been, I believe that there are more stories to tell. More and unique ways to express how this ‘little rock and roll band’ managed to alter the 20th century."

French also writes for other magazines and is a motivational speaker.  "Goldmine has run many articles on my band Twisted Sister over the years,” he said, including a profile on him in 2014.  "Goldmine editor Patrick Prince knows that my favorite music topic — besides Twisted Sister, of course — is my endless fascination with everything Beatles.”
