Copenhagen 4th of July 1964. Photographer Johan Brun from the Norwegian newspaper Dagbladet is in town to take pictures at the Beatles concert.
The one who is not there is Ringo Starr. He is sick after having his tonsils taken out. In his place, the temp Jimmy Nicol is playing the drums of the World´s greatest band.
Johan Bruns unique pictures from The Beatles first concert with the temp behind the drums has been laying as negatives in a drawer for 54 years. Now they are on public display.
For Lars Saabye Christensen it was impossible not to write about them. The result is a beautiful, funny and thought-provoking blues for Jimmy Nicol, the temp that for a brief moment was the drummer of The Beatles.
