SHOUT!: THE TRUE STORY OF THE BEATLES – Buy it here.
The first and best Beatles biography, fully updated and reissued to coincide with the 40th anniversary of Beatlemania. When it was first published Philip Norman’s SHOUT! was hailed as the definitive work on the Fab Four. He had a close personal relationship with each of the protagonists, having interviewed them many times since 1965 and observed at first hand the events that led to the split during 1969-70. The resulting book contained unique insights into the rise of the Beatles, their final years, the chaos of Apple and the collapse of hippy idealism. Now fully updated, and written with all of Norman’s trademark verve and skill, this is an essential book for anyone with an interest in pop music, the Sixties and the pleasures and perils of God-like fame.
