Author: John Van der Kiste
Does the world really need yet another book of trivia relating to the Fab Four? Let the consumer decide. This feast of facts looks at the origins of the group name; when each member joined and left; quotes about the group from such diverse names as Mick Jagger, Steven Spielberg, Francis Rossi, and Tony Blair; other musicians who temporarily or nearly joined them, from early stand-in drummers to heavyweights Eric Clapton and Billy Preston; their producers and 'inner circle'; their connections with Bob Dylan, Elvis Presley, Donovan, ELO, Badfinger, and others; the 'Paul is dead' story that gripped more gullible sections of the media in the late 60s; a selection of their press conference one-liners; a brief UK and US discography; the album titles that nearly were but ultimately weren't; and much more. Although the focus is on the group up to 1970, there are also brief surveys of their solo careers and solo album listings. As they might once have observed, 'and you know that can't be bad'.
