Pub. Date:
1st U.S. ed.
This is the real history of The Beatles, told by the people who really knew them - their childhood playmates, family, friends, rivals, lovers, teachers, fellow musicians - and by John, Paul, George and Ringo themselves.

Together these voices cast new light on the bands history, with revealing accounts of the early days in Liverpool and Hamburg, the touring triumphs and burnouts, and the secrets behind the album Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band. A chorus of distinctive voices tells us how The Beatles helped get The Rolling Stones rolling, why The Beatles stopped touring in 1966 at the height of their fame, and what really led to their breakup in 1970. This book is based on an award winning radio documentary. The first volume of 3 audiobooks compiled from the documentary will be available for download in May 2008.
