Kirchherr met the Beatles for the first time in 1960 at Kiserkeller, one of the many club on the Reeperbahn in which young British band where aired to play Rock ‘n’ Roll. Back than the line up of the band was John Lennon, voice and guitar, Paul McCartney, voice and guitar, George Harrison, guitar, Pete Best, drums e Stuart Sutcliffe, bass guitar, five boys from Liverpool – Harrison was still underage – who had met at school and ware looking for places to play and earn some money.
 
Kirchherr at the time was a student at Hamburg Design Institute and assistant to famous photographer Reinhard Wolf, from whom she was learning photography. She came to knew the Beatles thanks to her friend - and then boyfriend – Klaus Voormann and immediately was stricken by the stage presence and music quality of the band that use to alternate their first songs to the great Rock’n’Roll classics.
 
The Beatles on their part ware attracted by the girl that was a door to a different end more sophisticated European culture, and soon Sutcliffe and Kirchherr felt for each other. The relationship between Astrid and The Beatles grew quickly and steadily. Kirchherr introduced the group to existentialist art and literature, leading to a drastic change in their style: leather jackets, texana boots and rockabilly hair left early on to make room for suits, jackets and the hair cut which the photographer also sported and would soon become one of the band's symbols.
