About Ivor Davis
London-born Ivor Davis first came to America in the early sixties and was appointed West Coast correspondent for the London Daily Express in l963. His first big assignment came the following year: to hang out, travel with, and get to know the four members of a new pop group from Liverpool: the Beatles. He was the only British daily newspaper correspondent to cover the Fab Four’s first American tour from start to finish, given unparalleled access to John, Paul, George, and Ringo. Fifty years later, Davis wrote The Beatles and Me on Tour.
Over more than five decades as a writer for the Express and the Times of London, Ivor covered major events in North America. He penned a weekly entertainment column for the New York Times Syndicate for over fifteen years, interviewing some of the biggest names in show business, from Cary Grant to Elizabeth Taylor, Richard Burton to Tom Cruise and Muhammad Ali.
In l969 Davis co-wrote Five to Die, the first book ever published about the Sharon Tate—LaBianca murders, and covered the trial for the Daily Express. Fifty years later he wrote Amazon’s #1 New Release MANSON EXPOSED: A Reporter’s 50-Year Journey into Madness and Murder. As a foreign correspondent, he traveled throughout the western hemisphere covering riots, floods, earthquakes, and politics. As Editor-at-Large for Los Angeles Magazine, he and his late wife, Sally Ogle Davis, wrote over 100 major magazine and cover stories
