All Together Now... We Love The Beatles 1957 - 1970

by Seamus Moore - £7.99  Austin Macauley Publishers (2015)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781784555184 | ISBN 10: 1784555185

Did you know that ‘Lucy in the sky with diamonds' was inspired by little Julian Lennon's painting of 4 year old Lucy O'Donnell, who sat beside him in school, not about drugs?
 
This book tells the story of The Beatles from their coming together as young teenagers in Liverpool in 1957 to their traumatic break up in April 1970. Each chapter covers a year in the life of the group, followed by the music, mini biographies and locations of people and places relevant to the band in that particular year.
 
Paul McCartney is quoted as saying that he hardly ever finished a book about The Beatles because he "rarely passed the first chapter without finding at least four inaccuracies". Paul, you will read to the end! "The music was positive, it was positive in love... the basic Beatles' message was love" (Ringo)
 
This book captures the essence of that music and the interaction of the personalities of the four young Liverpudlians that combined to create it - music that caused hysteria at that time and continues to inspire joy and happiness all over the world.
 
All together now, "WE LOVE THE BEATLES"
