At 21 years young, college art student Stuart Sutcliffe dies in the arms of his fiancé Astrid Kircherr on his way to the hospital. Since his death in 1962 it's been a mystery as to how a spry man like Stuart can succumb to a brain hemorrhage in Hamburg, Germany. But more than that, his story is one that's often overlooked and even forgotten in The Beatles lore.

Join me today to learn about who Stuart was and how tragedy befell him.
