Our thoughts are with the family and friends of Tony Barrow, who passed away at the weekend.

Tony was the Beatles' first press officer and he played an invaluable role in their early career. At a time when the band had a schedule of uninterrupted touring and countless appearances, Tony managed the ceaseless press activity. 
He also fulfilled a multitude of other jobs, from writing album sleeve notes to editing the Magical Mystery Tour strip cartoon book.

With love from all at Apple.

We will always miss and remember him with admiration and love. “If anyone earned the title of the fifth Beatle it was George” - Paul

It was with great sadness that we learnt of the passing of Robert (Bob) Balser on January 4th aged 88.

Bob along with the late Jack Stokes were the two immensely talented Animation Directors on the 1968 film Yellow Submarine.

In 2012 Bob generously gave us his time and expertise as a consultant on the restoration of the original film. A delightful man, he was considered a true friend of Apple.

We send our sincere condolences to his wife Cima and all the family.
