On Saturday, November 12 at 2:00 p.m., the Westfield Memorial Library will present “The Beatles Next: The Solo Years” by rock historian Vince Bruno. The library is located at 550 East Broad Street.
Bruno will focus on continuing the highlights of the “solo” post-Beatles careers of John, Paul, George and Ringo. He will explore the aftermath of The Beatles legacy and how they established themselves as solo artists and collaborated with each other on many of their solo projects. The talk will be enhanced by visual backgrounds and short audio clips.
Vincent Bruno is a rock historian with focus on The Beatles and the Sixties. Recently retired as rector of First-year programs at LaGuardia Community College (City University of New York), he holds an MAP from Baruch College, and as an adjunct professor for the past 25 years, he has taught courses in numerous disciplines including Humanities, Management and Cooperative Education.
As a Beatles scholar and storyteller, he looks to embrace not just their legacy, but to present an entertaining, interactive, and informative session for both the casual listener as well as the hard-core Beatles fan.
