Chuck Gunderson was raised in San Diego, California, the site of the Beatles 8th stop on the 1965 North American tour. He was too young to attend the show, but fondly recalls his older siblings spinning the records of the Fab Four as he grew, which perked a life-long love for the band.
He has worked in the outdoor advertising industry most of his life although his true passion is history; he obtained his B.A. at San Diego State University and an M.A. at the University of San Diego both in the field of history. Having published a few articles over the years, Chuck turned his sights to researching and writing the critically-acclaimed, “Some Fun Tonight! The Backstage Story of How The Beatles Rocked America: The Historic Tours of 1964-1966.” He has consulted on a number of various Beatles related projects such as director Ron Howard’s recent documentary, “Eight Days a Week.”
Chuck and his wife Christina live in Carlsbad, California and are the parents of four children, each a self-described Beatles fan.
