Stuart Sutcliffe

Deciding to concentrate on being an artist rather than a musician, Sutcliffe opted to stay in Hamburg and lived there with his girlfriend Astrid Kirchherr.

Stuart died on 10 April 1962 from a brain haemorrhage, at the age of just 21.

The Beatles learned of his death when they arrived a couple of days later to start a seven-week residency at the Star Club in Hamburg.
