Kristofer Engelhardt's first public appearance was on January 20, 1952, in Bay City, Michigan, where he still resides. Kris attended both of The Beatles' performances at Olympia Stadium in Detroit in 1966 which inspired him to begin seriously collecting their records. Today he has one of the largest collections of The Beatles records in the world. Kristofer's first book `Beatles Undercover', CG Publishing 1998, was voted one of the top five best books on Rock music that year by Record Collector Magazine. The late George Harrison sent the author a handwritten note saying, "What a book! A massive job." The producer of Ringo Starr's All-Starr Band tours says, "It's my guidebook for the All-Starr Band concept." Discoveries Magazine called it, "The definitive look at the Fabs' extracurricular work." Goldmine remarked, "Outstanding - It deserves to be added to the library shelf of every serious fan of the group." Q Magazine in England said, "Tirelessly catalogued and exhaustingly comprehensive - THREE STARS!" Kristofer is considered a leading authority on rock music and The Beatles.
